ATR-72 Family


#1

Entering service in 1989, the ATR-72 family has proven to be a brilliant little group of aircraft. The -72 was a stretched design of the -42, seating a maximum of 78 passengers. The ATR has been used for both commercial, cargo and military operations, with notable operators being Azul, Air New Zealand and Firefly.

Specifications:

Capacity: 68-78 Passengers (with club 2 seating). A 70-passenger configuration is the most used.
Length: 27.17 m (89 ft 2 in)
Wingspan: 27.05 m (88 ft 9 in)
Width: 2.57 m (8 ft 5 in) (maximum cabin width)

The service ceiling is FL250, with a max cruise speed of 509 km/h; 316 mph (275 kn). The take-off run at MTOW is around 4300ft/1300m. I believe that the success of the Dash 8 shows the desire for more short range turboprops such as the ATR-72.

Nice request. American Eagle operated a few ATR-72's a few years back as well. I've never had the pleasure of flying on one, but would like to someday!


#3

Excellent statement. Iā€™m out of my votes but I stand behind this 100%. šŸ‘šŸ¼


#4

Really credible for small planes like that.


#5

if you like this more of sth you voted before you can just eliminate the vote there and put it here ;-)


#6

I am fully aware that I can do that. But thanks for telling me again. šŸ˜‰


#7

I've requested a bunch of liveries and I didn't realise that no one had requested the actual aircraft!


#8

Would be really nice to have this in IF. And there are already lots of livery requests for this aircraft, so I think there are good chances that this will be implemented in the near future.


#9

Out of votes but 100% with that plane.
I would love to see an update with plenty of regional planes coming out at once!
We need short range operating planes with the arrival of Global!


#10

This is definitely missing. Airlines such as Virgin Australia etc are dearly missed at the moment.


#11

LIAT!!!! Please Vote for that Sexy Caribbean Carrier!!!


#12

I'll have this only if they include the Air Vanuatu and Air New Zealand livery šŸ˜Š


#13

Well we have already got the Q-400...I rather have reworked Airbus and Embraer jets


#14

You mean ceiling? šŸ˜‰


#15

Nice spot. Testing you all to see if you actually read my post all the way through or not šŸ˜


#16

If this is added I would love the Flybe livery

ATR is a nice aircraft, but they can be awkward to load, yeah even come with a pole that they attach to the back of the plane to stop it tipping onto its tail


#17

Didn't actually know that. I assume that's just when it's on the ground?


#18

Yeah only on the ground, I only noticed it the other day as well.

Edit, I found a pic for you, only on the -72 series


#19

Amazing aircraft! Yep definitely needed :-)


#20

Sorry out of votes... but nice request! I love the ATR series of planes! I seriously hope this gets added after the C17 rework and the GA rework and all the other reworks...
