Expert Series ATR 42-600 / 72-600 Updated to v1.0.8

After its initial release back in April, the Expert Series ATR 42-600 / 72-600 aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been updated. Version 1.0.8 brings with it a vast number of fixes and changes that seem to address a number of complaints the community had with the aircraft following its launch.

The changelog below is fairly extensive, but some more interesting changes include fixes to the MCDU PERF pages and behaviour, along with improved VNAV path calculation. There are also autopilot fixes that address issues found after its initial release.

The update will be automatically downloaded once you load up Microsoft Flight Simulator. Otherwise, you can manually start the update through the in-sim Content Manager.

Watch the official trailer for the ATR 42-600 and ATR 72-600 for MSFS now.

The plane is available right now through the in-sim Marketplace for $19.99 (€19.99, £16.74) with a 30% discount on top for simmers with a copy of the deluxe and/or premium deluxe editions of the simulator.
