When downloading any aviation package these days I always like to take my time and make sure that whatever I’m about to take part in flying is based on the real thing. This package of the ATR-42-500 is something well worth keeping in mind. Designed by Ahmed Ahsen and Ed Cox, both have put a huge amount of work into making sure that this feels as close to the real thing as it possibly can.

How Does it Look?

The looks is one of the most desirable factors of the aircraft, coming to life in a really impressive fashion and bringing together a fine collection of additions and changes. With no need to install anything else to make it work, this flies like a dream and gives you something that looks special, too!

It comes with awesome virtual cockpit panels as well as gauges and knobs that look wonderful, capturing the real style of the aircraft perfectly well. Indeed, the whole package – inside and out – manages to capture the scale of the real thing in the most detailed fashion it can. The repaint work by Ahmed is excellent, too, capturing the real texture details of the original model by Ed and making it all work together as one.

Given that the aircraft comes with a full workable cockpit as well as an ATR model, you can be sure that you are getting a model that looks excellent and lies out nothing to bring it all together in the best fashion it can.

How Does it Fly?

Really, the flight performance is excellent. The aircraft itself is one that I know quite well so I was very interested to hop into the cockpit and fly off, trying it out in various ways. I went out of my way to make sure the aircraft was being challenged by really pushing it to the boundaries of its performance, but I never once felt like I was flying something unrealistic. It has its limitations but it also is capable of hitting the right levels of performance of the original aircraft.

Another major factor of this aircraft comes from the fact that you have all of that control in the cockpit. The whole thing comes together when you start flying around with the aircraft and you notice that you can get just about any feature that you need in the cockpit, even if you are in a bit of trouble when flying!

My Verdict

The lads have done a wonderful job of making this the part and ensuring it flies in the perfect way. It’s comfortable to use and easy to install – just unzip the files into your Aircraft folder and your Gauges folder for your flight simulator. It’s easy to start working with and even more simplistic to learn.

This is a user-friendly aircraft that makes sense for both veterans and newbies to mess around in, with a very effective design style that catches the eye in true style.
