LOL you beat me to the punch man. ;) I was just remarking to myself today how great the plane is! It's a pity that no US carriers currently operate the 42-500 (although American Eagle operates the 72-500). Did Continental Express ever order some of the -500s? Anyhoo, congrats to Sanchez Castaner and his great plane, and I anxiously await his ATR 72 family to accompany it. Cheers!George

I can only second that. I am using the ATR family aircraft from Paco as the workhorse of the fleet of the VA I am working on at the moment and have come to love the ATR 42-300.The only thing I have so far not done is download the latest patches for the 42-300 (V2.01) and since Paco went on holiday and has removed them from his site and I can't seem to be able to find them on the various sites for download I kindly request that some nice soul could email them to me.

Anyone done anything to improve the ground handling of this otherwise excellent aircraft? It's a real beast to turn without differential braking.RegardsTim

Here Here! Great to see others appreciation of one of my favorite downloads. Isn't it gorgeous!? True we do need some re-paints of a north american theme - even if they're just VA'sBoone

Check out Paco's homepage. And the FAQ section there. There he is giving some explanations as to why this is the case and how to remedy it if one wants to, but apparently this is pretty close to the real thing.Unfortunately I don't have his homepage hand, but if you check out Paco's username there is a link there.

Have a look under the ATR 42-300 section. As far as I can see the two aircraft are identical apart from the engine output.

Continental Express had a few -500s for a while. They and the 72s were the first to go. Only a handful of -320s remain.

After reading your comments, and as I have other ATR airplanes, I tried to download the one you have praised so much. The problem is that I cannot find it in Avsim. Will you please inform where it is?Thanks in advance.Best Regards,

Thanks a lot. I could not find the link in your site, but I managed to get it from Avsim, after searching for the author's name. I already had done that but I think I misspelled the name.Next I will get some of your repaints!Regards,
