History

The ATL-90 Accountant was a turboprop airliner designed as a replacement for the Douglas DC-3. It was powered by two Rolls-Royce Dart turboprops and first flew from Southend on the 9 July 1957. The only Accountant, initially flown using the identity G-41-1, but quickly registered G-ATEL, was displayed at the Farnborough Airshow in September 1957 but did not attract much interest. The aircraft last flew on the 10 January 1958 and development was abandoned. The aircraft was scrapped in February 1960.
