"We selected Flight1 Software for their demonstrated ability to produce outstanding aircraft, highly realistic and with extensive features." Jean-Pierre Cousserans, Senior VP at ATR.

Developed in co-operation with the original aircraft manufacturer, this ATR72-500 is the ultimate simulation of one of the world's most popular regional turboprop aircraft.

With sounds recorded from the actual aircraft at the factory to flight testing by ATR and airline pilots, the Captain's seat has never felt more real! Over 15,000 man-hours of development make this one of the finest simulations ever for Flight Simulator.

  • Multiple high quality instrument panel options let you fly the ATR from either seat. Be the First Officer or take command!
  • With the incredibly lifelike and smooth animations in the virtual cockpit, you'll believe you are sitting in the real aircraft.
  • Accurate aircraft systems are fully modelled - including an ultra-realistic Flight Management System for the ultimate in realism.
  • From the tip of the nose to the tail and everything in between, inside and out this ATR is exquisitely detailed with photo-realistic modelling.
  • A configuration manager allows you to set up the many options, from cabin layout to fuel and loading. The Text-o-Matic editor allows you to import almost any real-life airline livery free of charge or create your own!

Now updated and flying better than ever, this aircraft works and flies beautifully in both Flight Simulator 2004 and FSX. Grab your flight bag and get ready to go - you are cleared for departure!
