Aer Lingus Regional ATR72-600

Hello IFC. Today I present my first ever feature request on the IFC. While this aircraft is in the Aer Lingus livery it is operated by Stobart, similar to how Envoy Air flies regionals for American Airlines. This aircraft is very close to my heart as not only is it one of my favourite aircraft but it is also an extremely frequent visitor around Ireland and the UK. It is such a beautiful aircraft and is an absolute wonder to fly on. I also feel we need more short-haul aircraft in Infinite Flight as most aircraft which have been added/reworked recently are long haul aircraft! We only have one turboprop which does frequent commercial (Dash-8) service in IF and it is my belief that we need more! Here is one of my ATR shots I took while spotting at Dublin airport. There are also some cool registrations that the developers have fun with such as EI-FAX or EI-FAT ;)
