ATR has appointed Alessandro Luzi as Managing Director of the company’s Eastern Support (AES) subsidiary, based in Singapore, effective as of March 1, 2021. Luzi joined ATR in 2008 as Cockpit and Cabin Design Engineer and has since developed with leadership roles as Head of Aircraft Interiors and Systems Installation and subsequently leading the development of the ATR 72-600F as the project’s Chief Engineer. He will replace Jean-Pierre Clercin who will become ATR’s Head of Sales for the Asia Pacific Region, and will continue to work from the Singapore offices.
The ATR Eastern Support Facility has also officially moved premises from Changi Business Park to Seletar Aerospace Park, where it will be located alongside the ATR Training Centre, on the Airbus campus, in the local aerospace cluster. The relocation also provided an opportunity to upgrade the ATR-600 simulator to the latest avionic standard 3.1, improving the visual system and qualifying UPRT and full-stall and icing capabilities.
