After over 15,000 man hours of work, research, and planning, Flight1 Europe is excited to present the ATR 72-500.

Developed with the cooperation of Avions de Transport Regional (ATR) in Toulouse, France, this has been one of Flight1's most exhausting development efforts. The hard work pays off with one of the most detailed add-ons ever produced for the Microsoft Flight Simulator platform.

Experience the ATR!

Exclusively designed for Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2004 (A Century of Flight), computer pilots can experience first hand what it is like to fly the real ATR 72-500.

Select to fly from the Captain's or First Officer's panel in either of the standard brown or newly available blue/grey cockpit configuration. Experience the fully functional and highly detailed virtual cockpit with many never before features, such as truly working windshield wipers that remove the rain from the windows. Take a stroll through the virtual cabin, checking out the detailed 3D interior including 2 different seating configurations, available in 4 different color schemes. Explore the 3D exterior model and listen to the real cockpit and engine sounds recorded from the real ATR in a runup in Toulouse.

Flight1 has set up a special web site dedicated to the ATR. Here you will be able to get the latest information and news on the product, see many additional screenshots not shown here, retrieve accessory downloads, get technical support, and discuss the ATR with other virtual ATR pilots.
