It is an AI aircraft, as is the MD-80 and Cherokee. That means not flyable by default.It is possible to add a panel and make it flyable, but I dont have all the details so I will let the better informed about that particular process weigh in.

Yes. They are coming out with a patch for FSX. Their FS9 version of the plane is unbelievable. My friend was running the control module on a different computer setting creating failure conditions while I was flying. It even has an inflight entertainment system.

Can't wait to get it. Flight 1's ATR for FS9 was great, but this one seems to be the best you can get. Any idea about the FSX ETA?
