Update! MSFS2020 - ATR 72-600 Freeware Aircraft [Working Cockpit] - V.0.6.10


The ATR 72 is a twin-engine turboprop, short-haul regional airliner developed and produced in France and Italy by aircraft manufacturer ATR (Aerei da Trasporto Regionale or Avions de transport régional), a joint venture formed by French aerospace company Aérospatiale (now Airbus) and Italian aviation conglomerate Aeritalia (now Leonardo S.p.A.). The number "72" in its name is derived from the aircraft's standard seating configuration in a passenger-carrying configuration, which could seat 72–78 passengers in a single-class arrangement.

During the 1980s, French aerospace company Aérospatiale and Italian aviation conglomerate Aeritalia merged their work on a new generation of regional aircraft. For this purpose, a new jointly owned company was established, ATR, for the purpose of developing, manufacturing, and marketing their first airliner, which was later designated as the ATR 42. On 16 August 1984, the first model of the series, designated as the ATR 42-300, performed the type's maiden flight. During the mid-1980s, the ATR 72 was developed as a stretched variant of the ATR 42. On 27 October 1989, Finnish airline Finnair became the first airline to operate the type in revenue service. The ATR 72 has also been used as a corporate transport, cargo aircraft, and maritime patrol aircraft.

Version 0.6.10
  • 1. Engines could not start manually. Just use keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+E" for cold and dark start.
  • 2. "Ignition" and "Pitot no Heating" warning keeps on whether you keep those switches on or off.
  • 3. Make sure both the left and right engines are running properly if you start simulation directly on runway.
    Version 0.6.9
    • Updated cockpit for game version 1.18.13, but I'm not sure if it solves the problem related to the cockpit for most players
      Version 0.6.8
      • Tweaked landing gear parameters.
      • Redundant parameters in flight presets are removed.
      • General Fix
        Version 0.6.6
        • Added ATR42 AI traffic dummy aircraft (no exterior difference)
        • Fixed flap behavior
          Version 0.6.5
          • Fixed
            Version 0.6.4
            • Corrected texture mapping on flaps.
            • Adjusted spoileron animations.
            • VR camera settings added.
            • The problem of elevator trim being locked when starting the game airborne is fixed
              Version 0.6.3
              • Adjustment in flight dynamics.
              • Texture problem of cockpit being fixed.
              • Now you can see the pilots sitting in the cockpit from outside.
                  Version 0.6.2

                    • Adjustment in flight dynamics, flap positions corrected.
                    • Dummy aircraft for AI traffic are added. Now you can see a real ATR if there is an ATR (for any variant) in air traffic if real-time air traffic is used.
                    • Autopilot is now working properly.
                    Version 0.6
                    • Recognition lights have been added.
                    • Auto-brake feature is removed as the King Air panel have no controls on it.
                    • Gauges have been added for external view.
                    • Improved flight dynamics.

                    • Cruise speed: 510 km/h (320 mph, 280 kn) TAS
                    • Range: 1,528 km (949 mi, 825 nmi) typical in-service OEW, 70 PAX@95kg
                    • Service ceiling: 7,600 m (25,000 ft) 
                    • Rate of climb: 6.88 m/s (1,355 ft/min)
                    • Fuel consumption: 1.49 kg/km (5.3 lb/mi)
                    • Takeoff: 1,367 m (4,485 ft) [MTOW]
                    This is a total remake of ATR72 for FSX by Virtualcol, which was released as payware initially. Animations and flight dynamics have been reproduced from scratch, ground interactions have been added, and all the lights have been made working. It can be cosidered a native FS2020 aircraft rather than just a converted model, and no more "_CVT_" folder would be generated. In FS2020, the doors of aircraft need a connection with ground vehicles or jetway to let it open, in the case of ATR the rear exit would be opened at the same time with baggage door upon requesting baggage services from ground frequencies, if there is one. The adaptation of the mod is done under formal permission from Virtualcol FS Software®: https://www.virtualcol.com https://www.simshack.net/products/free-atr-72-series-fsx-p3d-fs2004-1670

                    For those who have hardware throttle panel installed, you should put the engine switch to "OFF" BEFORE starting simulation to prevent the starter from being unable to switch off, otherwise the battery will be drained off in several minutes. This is a bug of the Kingair panel. It is chosen as the cockpit for the new version over CJ4 because it works better with turboprop aircraft. However, in this moment I should admit that we don't have enough resource and know-how for making a custom cockpit. It is far more complicated than those for FSX or before.

                    1. Are there any additional liveries for the ATR72-600?

                    2. What is the line to edit Clear Windows not Mirrored?

                    3. Totally love this Plane. You could make use of the Spoiler Lever for it's Feathering. Also I compared Modern Flight Model to Legacy which the latter has better Pitch/Roll reality but suffers some severe ground effect on approach if we lift off throttle with Full Flaps. I far prefer it in Modern as all others but I must take care on the Pitch. Can that be tamed down by half?

                    4. Any chance the NAV can work with Working Title CJ4 Mod? Only the AP altitude works.

                    5. I can't see the Wings/Props from looking out of the Cockpit. This would be amazing. Is there a way to edit the Pitch for when we only use Modern Flight Mode to negate switching for this?

                    6. can someone get a dash 8 q400
                      dash 8 q300
                      dash 8 q200
                      dash 8 q100
                      one of them plz in to this sim ASAP??

                    7. Please get us a FEDEX livery !

                    8. May want to change the description the plane can not fly at 320mph

                    9. Is there anyway to make it comnpatible to working title cj4 mod?

                    10. El CG de carga esta sobrepasado un 25-30%, modificando incluso el combistible.

                    11. Can you make it compatible with W.T.?

                    12. Same issue ! ��
                      screens are OFF.
                      A.P. doesn't work !
                      I keep v0.6

                    13. Issue resolved !
                      You must use in first the kingair 350 and after ATR72-600 to have a functionnal cockpit...

                    14. Is there a way to open doors?

                    15. v2.4.2 was much better until it wasn't compatible with WT. This one spawns 20ft infront of the Cockpit. Going back to the CJ4 one.

                    16. Bring back the CJ4 version but with Working Title compatibility.

                    17. CJ4 cockpit is better actually, i have try to use the king air sound and the only things problem is overspeed sound appeared cause the red line is on 150knot, if someone can solve that problem both engine will sound as real as it.

                    18. Hey mate, after latest MSFS update the ATR is no more landable. When start breaking, after touchdown and all gears on ground , the nose starts to move up and down with crashing at the end. Not controllable. Did a lot of landings on different airports. Everywhere the same. Think MS changed something the Mod can't handle right. Is there a chance of an upcoming fix or will this Mod no longer supported? All the best :-)

                    19. Really, this is impressive article which you have shared here. It is provides me an interesting knowledge. I request you to keep sharing such blogs. Share more informative post for FedEx Contract Negotiation. Keep it up.
