Hello SimShack , This is an excellent free download for the ATR 42 for FS 2004 . The out appearance of the various of the various livries are well done It comes with a pdf checklist and operating manual for the flight computer as well as the various switches. The auto pilot is a little difficult to understand but has alot to do with my computers screen as the virtual cockpit can be magnified to clearly read all guages and switches. The ATR 42 model has very forgiving flight characteristics and handles and flyies well . Trimming the airplane also is easy to do. One item I notices is the C of G is showing way forward of the c of G zone but does not show in the flight chracteristics. opening the fuel and load section shows only 1 load point so I imagine it is not adjustable. The fuel however is fully adjustable. Inflight sounds are good in all views and the engine shutdown sounds are very realistic . propeller animation is also good. in this package there are 2 main control panels both virtual cockpit and 2d cockpit as the package addresses 3 different versions on the ATR 42 depending on the airlines requirement. to sum up you can't go wrong as it is getting harder to find aircraft that run in FS 9 , and I imagine the FSX and P3D versions are better yet. Thanks Virtualcol and Simshack

I downloaded the FSX version. The download was quick and faultless. Unzipping the file was easy and the supplied installation programme made everything very quick and easy. Having spent just over an hour flying this plane my review naturally is limited - especially as I'm not a fan of virtual cockpits so I only used the supplied 2D cockpit panels. I am impressed by the quality of the graphics, paint schemes, sound quality and flight characteristics. It might be the way my FSX has been set up, but the "mouse-over tool tips" were missing which made life difficult at times and almost impossible sometimes due to the very small readouts from the gauges. For a totally free download, these are criticisms which are a bit picky but these and more would be fully justified if I had paid for this - in fact I would have been demanding a refund. Download it, fly it and enjoy it.

Thank you for offering this aircraft as freeware. I don't want to seem ungrateful, but this is my honest opinion. In terms of the aircraft, the 2D panel is OK in so far that it's easy to follow and use. The textures are 'flat' though. The VC is a different matter. It looks very unreal and again the texturing is almost none existent. Difficult to read some of the gauges too. The sound is OK, but it lacks depth. The plus side is that there are plenty of liveries but they look too clean. I like liveries to look 'used,' that's a personal preference however. I have to admit, if I'd paid for this model, I would've been disappointed. Thanks for the opportunity to download and comment on this plane.

Seamless install to MS FSX (steam). The acft has excellent detail and flight characteristics are accurate. It came with three paint schemes that are all excellent.

Letters on the instrument panel are too small although I believe this is the right proportion on the instrument panel.
