The 600 series is a nice airplane and the cockpit has been updated. Here's a picture of the ATR-72-600 which as the same cockpit as the smaller ATR-42-600:

EC-MPI - Binter Canarias ATR 72 (all models) at Tenerife Norte - Los Rodeos | Photo ID 909311 | Airplane-Pictures.net (http://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/909311/ec-mpi-binter-canarias-atr-72-all-models/)

Looks like Bahamasair is already using the ATR-42-600 in the region:

Yet Carribean Airlines is looking at replacing their -600 series ATR's with Q400's due to their high AOG rate.

Yea I was curious about the choice for the ATR over something like the Q.

Beware, prop brake can be de-activated just like Eagle did back in the day. Makes for nice and sweaty boarding times.:eek:

No street captain but if you have prior 121 you might get a quick upgrade. I've seen guys with only 4-5 months getting the upgrade.

Actually no. Never worked there when it was Gulfstream and never paid for my job. Sorry to disappoint you.
