The ATR 42 is the only 50 seat aircraft currently in production, (ATR.com) and is what the ATR 72 is based off of. Introduced in 1984, with a standard configuration of 48 seats, and is 22.7m (~74’) long, with a 24.6m (80’) wingspan.
The take-off runway required at MTOW is about 3,822ft, with a maximum altitude of 25,000 feet, and a top speed at cruise of 266 knots.
I would like this aircraft in Infinite Flight because it would be a great companion to the CRJ 200 which is the only aircraft of that size in Infinite Flight. Another cool feature is it’s ability to land on unpaved runways. It also has many operators, and some airlines that cannot operate a larger aircraft operate this family instead. Here are some of the operators.
Silver Airways (20 on order)
HOP! (12 in service)
Aeromar (15 in service)
Empire Airlines (11 Freighters along with 4 for Ohana by Hawaiian)
FedEx Express (25 in Feeder Fleet)
Fedex feeder operate 25 ATR 42-300F’s through contract airlines. Other than that brilliant topic and i love the aircraft. I saw an ATR-72 of air nostrum at LEIB (ibiza airport) from very close proximity which was awesome.
