Aerospatiale / Alenia ATR-72

The ATR 42 and ATR 72 are a family of twin-turboprop short-haul regional airliners built in France by ATR (Avions de Transport Regional). The ATR 42 seats up to 60 passengers, while the ATR 72 seats 74 passengers. Both aircraft are operated by a 2 person crew.

The ATR 42 is the initial version and was announced in 1981, having its first flight August 16, 1984. The ATR 72 is the basic ATR 42 stretched by 4.5 m (14 ft 9 in) and with modified wings. The ATR 72 was announced at the 1985 Paris Air Show and made its maiden flight on October 27, 1988. Exactly one year after that, on October 27 1989, commuter airline Kar Air of Finland became the first company to put the plane into service.

I have flown 1 hour flights with this airplane with Olympic twice the same day. It's a bit noisy but I found it to be adequately confortable otherwise.

One of these crashed on Chicago to Columbus flight due to ice build up on wing leading edges. Rubber boot continuous operation believed to be primary cause.
Boot formed a larger ice bulge on leading edge instead of breaking ice as designed if used intermittently.

I worked for a short time in the 80's as a ramp runner for the smaller planes. The ATR was one of them. Maybe I know enough to scare me, but I know they were the ones that crashed in the WInter because of unbalance of snow and Ice. How Safe are they to Fly really? From Ft. Myers to Miami.
