The only ATR 72-500 I haven't flown on - ZK-MCB at Hamilton on Queens Birthday on 3 June 2019

  1. The Koru and the Silver Fern has gone so it looks like the MCB is due to leave the Mt Cook fleet.

    1. It was due to earlier in the year but the sale fell through. It has been flying like this as a spare aeroplane for most of the year

  2. Wonder if air chats will see the ATR trial a success and we see another green ATR grace our skies.... please air Chats, paint the sweeping cheat lines on your ATR

    1. Rumour going around is Air Chathams are getting 2 more ATRs. My guess, if true, is they'll be ex Mount Cook ones again...

  3. They would be wiser buying Q300's. The ATR500's are a piece of crap. Ask any pilot.

    2. "Ask any pilot"

      6000 hour ATR pilot here. It's a perfectly capable aircraft that gets the job done with a minimum of fuss.

      Have you flown it? Are you even a pilot?
