The ATR exterior model has been painstakingly recreated
to provide an exceptionally accurate aircraft. Almost every
item on the aircraft has been recreated, animated, and textured.
A lot of information gathered from our research trips to
Toulouse France were used in the design process.
From the modeled propellers, to the tail stand, you will
see almost everything function like it should. The aft passenger
exit opens, as well as the fore cargo door. You have a working
prop brake so the APU can run (the APU is integrated into
an engine on the ATR, so the prop can't spin when the APU
is on). Winshield wipers animate, the nose wheel steers,
and a whole lot more are included in this model.
There are even a few special effects such as when the engines
start you see puffs of exaust appear when the engines ignite.
You will see the glow of the wing lights below the clear
covers, and of course the runways and taxiways will be fully
lit with the bright landing lights.
