My son Roman brought my attention to the TBM. What attracted me was the level of excellence that French aviation products are known for, the beauty of the design, and the fact that it was the fastest single-engine plane in existence. We began to think of how it could look and arrived at the notion that it could be all-polished aluminum with a black leather interior.

I have a weakness for attractive French women. The first was a TBM 700 with whom I lived for about 12 years. Then I had a younger one, a TBM 850. She graced my hangar for 5 years. And now I have this very young Daher TBM 900. Just look at her. The five bladed sculptured prop and provocative winglets.

Because of is remarkable low cost of operations, the French military have operated with TBM since 1992. Their fleet of 27 TBM 700, recently modernized with G1000 avionics integration, has accumulated over 200,000 hours of liaison and training flights for the French Armed Forces, transporting military command authorities from headquarters to operational bases, and saving the lifecycle of expensive aircraft in the fleet.

The Daher TBM 900 is the ultimate aircraft a private pilot can fly. The ferry flight from Tarbes to Australia was an extremely valuable trip for the learning experience of flying the TBM at large international airports. I have done a few ferries myself with other aircraft but none of them at TBM speeds and managing a high speed arrival at a busy airport like Mumbai (India) between jets requires good planning and experience with your aircraft descent profile.

I have used my TBM for a trout fishing trip in Tasmania (Australia) from Singapore – 2013, and each summer while the aircraft is based in the UK we take a “boys trip” for a few days salmon fishing in the Isle of Harris (Scotland) from Bournemouth (UK). For my wife and daughter who are keen golfers the TBM is also an ideal plane to travel to a golf resort, with the benefit of plenty of space for both passengers and the bulky golf bags.

In march 2013, the French company VOLDIRECT won its Air Operator Certificate (AOC), allowing it to operate single engine aircraft in IFR public transportation under european regulations. The TBM 850 chosen to run VOLDIRECT operations, gives the best compromise in terms of speed, economy and efficiency. Most of the trips are flown with a single pilot and 2 or 3 persons on board.

“I very much enjoyed my previous TBM 850 for its versatility and flexibility,” Mr. Charnvirakul explained. “When the time came to replace it after four years and some 900 flight hours, I chose the latest TBM model: the TBM 930. My ferry flight confirmed that I made the right decision: this is the TBM at its best in terms of performance, state-of-the-art avionics and the handling.” Shortly after the TBM 930 received its Certificate of Airworthiness from The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand, Charnvirakul performed the maiden operational flight as a volunteer to deliver a heart transplant for the Thai Red Cross organization. An active pilot, Anutin Charnvirakul is a well-known personality in Thailand. He was a former Deputy Minister of Public Health and Commerce, and is the current leader of the country’s Bhumjaithai Party.

Hannu Halminen chose the TBM, initially a TBM 850 Elite succeeded in 2017 by a TBM 910, for the flexibility in business travel and to accommodate his special cargo – bicycles. Halminen is a cycling enthusiast, and he even biked to take delivery of his aircraft! He rode from the nearby French town of Tarbes to the Daher
production site at Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees Airport to pick up his aircraft for the ferry flight
back to his home in Orono, Canada. For Halminen, accommodating luggage and bikes is easy thanks to the TBMs excellent loading characteristics. All items can be stacked heaviest to lightest in the adjustable cargo area, topped with the bikes nestled in their soft-sided bicycle bags, and secured with the strong cargo net. Halminen has flown his TBM to biking events around the world – including transporting four bikes and their cyclists in the Very Fast Turboprop to attend a race in California, and flying to several “Etape du Tour”. It is a cycling race held every year riding on the same routes and under the same conditions as the professionals on one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France. A must-attend race for an avid biker.

Our two TBMs have proven to be the perfect airplanes for the University of North Carolina. They are fast enough to do all our missions well. They have the speed to fly into the busiest airports, and the capability of going into a 2,350 foot runway when needed. The passengers love the comfort of the cabin. The pilots love the way they fly. Their reliability has been nearly flawless.

Speed was the main reason that attracted me to the Daher TBM 900. I’ve always been the guy who wants to go faster. The incredible range and payload capabilities blew away most of the competitive aircraft available on the market, including new very light jets and turboprops.
