Expert Series ATR 42-600 / 72-600 Updated to  1.0.20

Released just two months ago, the Expert Series ATR 42-600 / 72-600 for Microsoft Flight Simulator has received yet another update. This time the public release version has been brought up to version 1.0.20 featuring an extensive list of changes, updates, and bug fixes. As with all previous updates to the ATR, the new version can be updated via the Microsoft Flight Simulator Content Manager.

The changelog for this update is included below. Of note is that the list of fixes and improvements is rather substantial with a number of updates based directly on community feedback. This includes autopilot improvements, a SimBrief flight plan importer, and new ATR Highline liveries, among other fixes.


The ATR 42-600 / 72-600 is available via the MSFS in-game Marketplace for $19.99 (€19.99, £16.74) with a discount offered for owners of the Deluxe or Premium Deluxe editions of the simulator.
