An event to remember: Daher releases a video review of the TBM community’s participation at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh

Tarbes, France, December 22, 2017: Daher today released a new video that recaps the TBM community’s strong presence at this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Wisconsin, with the participation of 60 TBM very fast turboprop aircraft at the annual U.S. fly-in and a special salute to the company’s aviation heritage.

 

The four-minute video, produced for Daher by Airborne Films, captures sights and sounds of the world’s largest air show, where Daher’s two latest in-production aircraft – the TBM 910 and TBM 930 – joined the diverse line-up of airplanes during the July event. Included in the video are interviews with TBM customers who attended the fly-in, along with comments from Daher’s Chairman, Patrick Daher.

 

Also “starring” in the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh video is the full-scale Morane-Saulnier Type L aircraft replica, a century-old ancestor to the TBM product line. Built in France by a group of dedicated volunteers, this hand-crafted reproduction was brought to the U.S. by Daher, and the company donated it to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s EAA Aviation Museum at Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport.

 

“Our video reflects the passion for aviation that makes each EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in so unique, while also highlighting the special moments with TBM customers, aviation leaders and aviation enthusiasts at the 2017 event,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, and President of SOCATA North America Inc., which is Daher’s subsidiary in the U.S. “We already are looking forward to next year, and hope to welcome another strong turnout of the TBM community.

About the Daher TBM www.tbm.aero

The TBM 910 and TBM 930 are the latest members in Daher’s TBM family of very fast single-engine turboprop aircraft. Differences between the two models are concentrated on their primary avionics: Garmin’s G1000 NXi avionics system with physical keypad for the TBM 910; Garmin’s G3000 with touchscreen controller for the TBM 930.

 

Both aircraft offer superior performance – a maximum cruise speed of 330 kts. – and high efficiency with a 1,730-naut. mi. maximum range and a fuel consumption at economy cruise of 37 U.S. gallons per hour. This results from aerodynamic improvements, along with other aircraft enhancements. The maximum range and useful load, as well as the ability to land at small airports, are some of the customers’ favorite features.

 

To date, a total of 875 TBM aircraft have been delivered to international owners and operators, with the global fleet accumulating some 1.5 million flight hours. TBM 900-series aircraft already have received 256 orders since their launch, with 210 delivered through November 30th, 2017. They are built by Daher on its industrial site at the airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées (Hautes Pyrénées), France.
