A European corporate operator takes delivery of a new Daher TBM 930 as its fourth TBM family aircraft

Tarbes, France, June 27, 2016 – Daher has delivered a TBM 930 to the corporate flight department of an Italian-based industrial group this month, the fourth TBM family aircraft this customer has acquired.
The operator’s first purchase of a TBM family aircraft was a TBM 700A 17 years ago, followed by a TBM 700B variant in 2003 and a TBM 850 in 2006, leading up to the all-new TBM 930 version.
The TBM 930 is the latest member in Daher’s very fast turboprop family, and was unveiled earlier this year. According to the manager of the company, the series of TBM aircraft have been perfectly matched to its transport requirements, performing shuttle flights between factory sites in Italy, France and Austria that produce flexible manufacturing systems, as well as for visits to European customers.
Typical flights involve two hours maximum travel time, with international destinations including airports in Denmark, Finland, France, Germany and Sweden. This activity generates 250-300 flight hours annually.
“We thank our customer for its continued loyalty to the TBM,” commented Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of Daher’s Airplane Business Unit. “This also is a confirmation that our expanded TBM product line – based on the TBM 900 and TBM 930 – meets the evolving needs of many European operators who are fully benefiting from the use of very fast turboprop aircraft. »

About Daher TBM aircraft – www.tbm.aero
Unveiled on April 5, the 2016 models of the TBM 900 and the TBM 930 are the newest members of Daher’s TBM business turboprop aircraft family.
They benefit from the same performances and technical features that contributed to the great success of the TBM 900, a six-passenger aircraft. Differences between the two models are concentrated on their primary avionics.
Daher’s Model Year 2016 TBM 900 retains the liquid crystal displays with Garmin’s G1000 avionics system – incorporating a pair of 10-inch screens and a multifunction display sized at 15 inches,
along with a physical keyboard for navigation and communication functions. New this year is the TBM 900’s Bluetooth FS 210 connection system, which enables the use of a tablet or smart phone to prepare maps and flight plans.
The Daher TBM 930 integrates a split-screen mode, enabling maps and flight plans to remain on the three screens of 12 inches each installed side-by-side with primary, traffic and weather information. The high-resolution displays’ usage is enhanced thanks to the synthetic vision mode.
A new glass touchscreen controller serves as the pilot’s primary point of entry, displaying communication and other navigation controls.
In terms of aesthetics, Daher has developed a new interior for the TBM 930 with redesigned seating and headrests, along with a new choice of wood or carbon finishing. For an additional touch of style, polished metal is used for handles, door sills and steps.
Both aircraft offer performance close to that of light business jets: maximum cruise speed of 330 knots (611 km./hr.) and maximum range of 1,730 naut. mi. (3,200 km.), while providing greater
flexibility with their load-carrying capacity and the ability to operate from small airports. Another TBM 900 and TBM 930 advantage is the capability to operate from mountain airports,
retaining performance even in hot weather conditions. The aircraft need only 1,200 meters to take off and land at an airfield altitude of 8,000 ft. (such as Mexico City) – even with a temperature of ISA + 30 °C.
The TBM 900 and TBM 930 enable pilot-owners to be able to operate the aircraft themselves, while being adapted to the needs of midsize companies that appreciate their range, speed, passenger-carrying capability, along with low operating costs and discretion at airports.
TBM family aircraft are increasingly used for commercial charter flights. Based on the experience in France, where such operations have been approved since 2013, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) plans to allow this type of operation in Europe from next year – opening possibilities for air taxi services across Europe. France’s Voldirect was the first to operate a TBM in the framework of the country’s own regulations, enabling the use of TBM aircraft for public transport passengers in instrument flight conditions.
Overall, Daher has booked a total of 145 orders for the TBM 900 and TBM 930 since their launch in 2014 and 2016, respectively. As of June 15, deliveries brought the total number of TBM-series aircraft received by customers to 783, with this global fleet accumulating some 1.3 million flight hours.
Daher builds the TBM 900 and TBM 930 on the company’s final assembly line at its industrial site located on the Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées Airport in France’s Hautes-Pyrénées region.
