Peter's A36 Tip Tanks "Turbo Bandit" Modification

Former RAF fighter pilot, and retired British Airways captain, Peter McLeland is well-known for his "Bandit" modification to our Piper Archer II, and now he has done the same to our Beech A36 with Tip Tanks!

With this modification, you will receive an additional 50 horsepower (350 HP total), and a turbo charged engine. You will also have colorful smoke generators, and aerobatic capabilities! This modification is only for the Beech A36 with Tip tanks.

NOTE: This modification is performed "at your own risk", and is not supported by DreamFleet. Please be sure to read the Installation Instructions carefully, and to back up files prior to replacement. While not supported by DreamFleet, Peter McLeland and others experienced with the modification are usually available at our support forums to answer questions about it. However, they are not obligated to provide such support, and you should consider yourself "on your own" when it comes to this installing / using this modification.

Beech A36 "Fantasy Float Version" & Update

Click here for a larger image to appear

NOTE: As of September 1, 2005, the Beech A36 product will come "standard" with the Float version, and a separate download of it is not required. The 1.1 Update is only required for A36 purchases made prior to April 28, 2005.

For those desiring a "Flight of Fantasy" we present the FREE "Fantasy Float Version" . In reality, the Beech A36 is not available on floats, however, since this is Flight Simulation, we have taken the liberty of simulating one!

In addition to containing the Float Version of the Beech A36, this download also includes the Update and Service Release described below.

If you have already installed the Update, or have purchased the latest version of the Beech A36, which includes the Update, you should have no concern about installing the Float Version, as the Update portion will have no negative affect on your Beech A36 installation.

Installation: Click on dfa36update1.1.exe and follow the installer's prompts.

When installation is complete the Update's Manual Addendum (a single page document) will be displayed in Adobe Acrobat.

Beech A36 Update 1.1 & Service Release
This Update is NOT required if the version of the A36 that you downloaded and installed is named dfa36_1.1.exe. The earlier version that requires this Update is named dfa36.exe. The approximate crossover date between original and updated versions of the A36 is 28 April, 2005.

This Update provides the following:

1. Adds a Radar Altimeter (RA) to the panel. Click on the face of the ADF indicator gauge to swap between ADF and Radar Altimeter. The RA provides both a verbal warning upon reaching decision height, and a visual warning on both the face of the RA and on the Attitude Indicator. Both the ADF and the RA will continue to operate even when not visible. The RA has a minimum altitude readout of 20', and this is realistic to the actual unit, which does not read down to 0 feet.

2. Addresses a problem with the Garmin GNS430 that was experienced by a very small number of users.

3. Provides a few minor fixes and tweaks.

Installation: Click on dfa36update1.1.exe and follow the installer's prompts.

When installation is complete the Update's Manual Addendum (a single page document) will be displayed in Adobe Acrobat.

32 Bit Virtual Cockpit Textures

For those who desire higher quality Virtual Cockpit textures, this set of 32 bit textures is provided. Please note that these textures are eight (8) times the file size of the DXT1-compressed textures that are provided by default with the A36, and will cause serious performance degradation on those systems that do not have sufficient video memory and RAM. Use at your own risk, as no support is provided for issues caused by use of these textures.
