DreamFleet continues its' Greatest Airplanes series line with their latest release, the Beech A36. The Beech A36 reeks of luxury, and quality and is considered the "Rolls Royce" of single engine aircraft. The DreamFleet A36 Bonanza is the FIRST Flight Simulator aircraft to feature Reality XP's highly realistic Garmin GNS430 and WX500 weather radar, along with EagleSoft's Sandel 3308 EHSI as standard equipment!
The aircraft model was designed by Mikko Maliniemi of Finland, one of the most talented 3D modelers in the flight simulation industry, and you can be certain that this A36 is one of the most complex and detailed aircraft models ever produced. With each new model he produces, Mikko kicks things up another notch. This time he has kicked it up several!
Fully Interactive Virtual Cockpit & Cabin: State of the art, and beautifully detailed, with working gauges, and moving throttles, control wheels, rudder pedals, sun visors, arm rests, etc. Working click spots for gauges, throttles, etc. You can fly from the virtual cockpit or our complete 2D cockpit and interior (see below). The virtual cockpit features "click-to-remove" yokes, for easy access to and viewing of all gauges and switches.
Advanced VC Night Lighting: The Virtual Cockpit features advanced night lighting, and the user can select to turn on the panel flood light and the gauge back lighting separately - use either one or both. In addition, the overhead reading lights can also be activated separately for both the front and rear seats.
Click-To-Remove VC: With the DreamFleet A36, there's no need to preselect an aircraft model with or without a Virtual Cockpit. Just hop on board and with just a mouse click you can remove the VC.
Complete Moving Parts: Ailerons, rudder, stabilizer, flaps, etc. all move. The wheels turn, and both cockpit door, and cabin doors open and close.
Visible Interior and Pilot: This, of course, should be expected, and the interior visible from the outside of the aircraft is highly detailed. You can even remove the pilot from the cockpit with just a click of your mouse!
Dynamic Shine and Lighting Reflections on Fuselage: The same as found on the default FS aircraft, there's even reflections on the aircraft windows.
Accurate Flight Dynamics: The A36's flight dynamics were designed by Alexander Metzger of Switzerland, an experienced designer and glider pilot, who worked closely with the aircraft's owner in testing the flying qualities of the aircraft. If the real aircraft's owner is happy with how the A36 flies, so will you!
Details Galore!: Complete external lighting as on the real aircraft, many parts that would not normally be modeled are modeled, such as the dozens of vortex generators on the wings and tail. Detailed textures, right down to almost every rivet and inspection plate that is on the real thing.
In addition to the 3D virtual cockpit and interior, the DreamFleet A36 features complete 2D instrument panels and interior views, in our "trademark" high resolution, digital photo realistic graphics. Use the "VC" or use the 2D views. Some of the features of our 2D interior include:
Main Instrument Panels (left seat and right seat): Every gauge is there, just as it is in the real A36, and operate as accurately as is possible within FS. All gauges feature "dynamic tool tips", that tell you not only what the gauge is, but what its reading is. In addition, you can also select to place a "cover" over a gauge, so you can practice partial panel IFR. Of course the instrument panels feature near 100% accurate pilot's perspective. As with every DreamFleet panel you are seated in the pilot's seat, not in between the seats!
Landing View Panels (left seat and right seat): Essentially a reduced height version of the left and right seat Instrument Panels, with a larger outside view for making landings easier, or for enjoying the scenery. The left landing view panel features all of the primary flight and navigation instruments, and is suitable for IFR work.
Zoom Gauges: With just a click you can individually zoom in on the ASI, ADI, ALT, TC, EHSI, VSI and EGT. Zoom in on just one, or zoom in on all of them!
Avionics and gauges: The Beech A36 is a trendsetter; the first GA aircraft to feature Reality XP's award winning WX500 color weather radar, along with Reality XP's Garmin GNS430 GPS system. Add to that Eaglesoft's Sandel 3308 EHSI by Ike Slack, Bill Leaming's JPI EDM700 EGT, the default Garmin GPS500, and that is just the start. DreamFleet's Elmar Calbo has programmed a complete Bendix-King avionics suite, including Bendix-King 2-axis autopilot and Flight Director. There's DME, ADF, even an ELT and Carbon Monoxide Detector that you can test!
All gauges are high resolution, and are created from high quality digital images of the actual gauges appearing in the real aircraft.
2D Interior Views: Featured are Forward Left, Left (with visible 3D animated wing), Rear Left, Rear, Rear Right, Right (with visible 3D animated wing), Forward Right, and Up views. As with the instrument panel all views are high quality, digital photo graphics. No rendered or hand drawn artwork here!
Aaron Swindle does it again with a very realistic sounding sound set. Authentic Continental engine sounds are featured, with the originals recorded from the real aircraft by DreamFleet's Louis Betti. You will also get all of the usual switch "clicks", gyro sounds, closing door sounds, etc. An audible environment that along with the visual surroundings truly give you the feeling of "being there".
"DreamAudio" - Choice of 2 Internal Sound Sets: You will have a choice of two (2) Internal engine sound sets. The first features the engine sounds muffled as they would be heard by the pilot wearing Active Noise Reduction headphones. This is the most realistic sound set. The second sound set features the engine sounds at their normal, loud levels, as are usually provided by default in Flight Simulator. These are the least realistic sounds, as most, if not all pilots of these aircraft always wear their headphones for hearing protection and for ease of radio communication.
DreamFleet has always prided itself on giving you the MOST for your money, and the A36 is no exception.
Text-o-Matic: The ever popular "T-o-M" returns to the A36, from previous appearances in our other products.. With T-o-M you can repaint your A36 in any scheme you would like, or download paint schemes produced by others.
Configuration Control Panel: Formerly known as "Config-o-Matic" our Configuration Control and it is no longer a separate program, but operates right inside the aircraft! Use the Configuration Control to instantly select VC options and sounds. Use it to set various options on your Garmin GNS430, and to activate the various "Preflight" animating, such as the opening cowling and removable fuel caps. Make your decisions and selections while in the cockpit!
