I was going to get it today, but I went for the Dash 8-Q300 instead because someone recomended it to me. Insted of buying the Flight One ATR72-500.

Aerlingus330: I don't have ATR-72 from Flight1 but I do have the Dash-8-300QX from PSS. And it is awesome! My second favorite plane I have after PMDG737. Its a great plane to fly. I highly recommend it.

I got it today...I agree it is brilliant, but it takes a few hours to master. I still havent mastered it yet.
I have a little problem with it. Do you know how to set the speed hold?, because I cant find it anywhere. I know where to activate it, but I dont know how to set it.  Sad

I bought it this past weekend. The manual is 481 pages long. You really need to study about 200 pages of it in detail if you're going to get the plane started up, the FMC programmed and the plane off the ground. This is certainly not a package that can be used without reading the manual.

I flew ATL to TRI last night (replecating a flight I've taken with some regularity for a couple of years) on the sim using real weather and it had to be as close to the real thing as I've ever experienced on FS.

IMO one of the best add-on's available.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.
