Daher introduces TBM 900-series to India

New Delhi, India, September 17, 2018 – Daher today announced the first presentation of its Daher TBM 900-series in India, introducing the very fast turboprop aircraft to the sub-continent’s business aviation community.

The presentation will be organized on September 20th at New Delhi business aviation Signature’s terminal at Indira Gandhi International Airport in cooperation with SRK Aviacom Pvt. Ltd, which is the Indian Area Sales Representative for TBM aircraft. Based at New Delhi’s Airport, Aviacom is a leading sales organization for aircraft and helicopters in the country, as well as a provider of professional flight simulators.

Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, said the rising interest for fast transportation in Asia is creating a market opportunity for the company’s current very fast turboprop family members: the TBM 930 and TBM 910.

Aviacom CEO Capt. Sanjay Kumar added: “By introducing Daher’s TBM family of very fast turboprop aircraft, we aim to offer a cost-effective corporate aircraft for Indian businesses and entrepreneurs.”

Daher recently enhanced the TBM 930 and TBM 910 passenger cabins with interior restyling, and further increased the comfort with electrically-heated seats. By design, the cabin offers multiple quick-change capabilities, including an innovative closed toilet compartment as an option.

The superior level of service for TBM aircraft is further evolving in meeting customer expectations. In addition to the continued inclusion of Daher’s Total Care Program (TCP) coverage as part of the TBM “Elite package,” customers of the TBM 930 and TBM 910 receive a host of new services: subscriptions to the Garmin Pilot database and Jeppesen Pilot Pak™ bundle and – in countries where available – a three-month subscription to Sirius XM weather and radio.

About the Daher TBM very fast turboprop aircraft family 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; and 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 900 TBM aircraft have been delivered to international owners and operators, with the global fleet accumulating some 1.6 million flight hours. TBM 900-series aircraft already have received 266 orders since their launch, with 238 delivered through July 31, 2018. They are built by Daher on its industrial site at the airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées (Hautes Pyrénées), France.
