Leonardo says it has successfully tested paratrooper jump missions from its ATR MP military aircraft.
The trials at the end of July involved launching dummy and human paratroopers from the aircraft, as well as recovery procedures for emergencies.
A door was installed at the end of the cabin for jump testing.
The tests were designed to further expand the ATR’s mission capabilities, Leonardo said.
The ATR MP capabilities are available on ATR 42 and ATR 72 platforms, the company said...
