    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 have been getting a very good support and knowledge from Socata’s personnel especially after I brought the plane to my home country. The after sale service and attention I have from Socata has been a sweet dream to me. There were several occasions that my aircraft was designated AOG and I believe what all aircraft owners would feel when their planes are grounded. Socata would always help to get my plane back to the air as quick as they could.

    When I asked Daher if I could park my TBM here they rolled out the red carpet. For an owner-operated plane; this is the ultimate.

    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.

The TBM ownership experience

The TBM Owners and Pilots Association (TBMOPA) exists for owners and operators of TBM aircraft. The objective of the organization is to promote safety and provide an opportunity to maximize the pleasure and utility of the TBM ownership experience.
TBMOPA encourages a partnership of communication and information exchange with DAHER and with Sales and Service Centers as well as other involved businesses and organizations. However, TBMOPA functions as an independent organization focused on the best interests of the owner and operator base.
If you are a TBM owner, a prospective owner, or a distributor.

Flight Training

We stand behind our airplanes and we stand by your safety. We encourage every TBM pilot to stay up to date of flying procedures and latest regulations. Because everyone knows training and refinement are keys to practicing excellence.

Training in the Americas

Factory-approved initial TBM flight training in the Americas is provided through TBM’s partner, Simcom International. Simcom utilizes three Level 5 flight training devices that are based on real TBM cockpits, in either EFIS/GNS 530 or G1000 configurations. Simcom’s headquarters in Orlando, Florida centrally positions the training center for TBM pilots with US licences..
Simcom also provides factory-approved maintenance training for the TBM family.

TBM initial training consists of the following:

  • Ground school training, which includes TBM systems knowledge tests;
  • Flight training device (FTD) training;
  • In-aircraft training;
  • Flight review to Private Pilot Practical Test Standards and an Instrument Proficiency Check

SIM Aero, at Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees (LFBT) international airport,
Airways Formation – an Aviation training organization based at Agen Airport (LFBA) in France.

The training is provided “in aircraft,” using the owner’s aircraft or a rented TBM.

Both courses are conducted by highly experienced Class rating instructors approved by EASA to deliver a TBM SET (Single-engine Turboprop) Class rating.
