After over 15,000 man hours of work, research, and planning, Flight One Software 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 Flight One Software's most exhausting development efforts. The work pays off with one of the most detailed add-ons ever produced for the Microsoft Flight Simulator platform.
The versions on this page are compatible with both FSX and FS2004.
Exclusively designed for Microsoft's Flight Simulator, 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.
Please note that the FSX version does not contain the 2D fixed quartering cockpit views (as shown in the 6th picture down on the right), as these are no longer supported in FSX.
The purchase screen will appear when you run the executable. The servers do support Resume, however we do not recommend certain download managers because they can sometimes corrupt large downloads. Flight1 does offer a free download manager for the ATR.
Both the FSX version and FS2004 versions can be used with the same purchase key. Use the "Click Here to Reinstall" button in the purchase screen if you are installing the other version. Either can be purchased first.

This product is only compatible with FS2004 and FSX, so of course, these simulators are required. For your computer, we recommend you have a 1.6 GHz machine with a 128 Mb memory video card for FS2004, and a 3 GHz machine with a 256 Mb memory video card for FSX. System memory should be a minimum of 512 for FS2004 and 1 Gigabyte for FSX. Low-end on-board sound chips are NOT recommended. A plugin sound card, such as a Soundblaster Audigy, is recommended. In some cases, sounds will not work correctly unless you have an adequate sound card.
Windows XP and Vista are the official operating system that is supported for use with the ATR. The software will work with most Windows 7 systems.
