Airframe Design

Airframe Design

The Daher TBM very fast turboprop aircraft defines reliability in the skies! Incorporating a variety of aluminum and steel alloys, titanium as well as advanced composite materials, the TBM airframe offers unmatched structural strength and durability at the lowest possible weight. From its inception, the TBM aircraft family employed a fail-safe airframe design, including the use of multiple load paths, a crack-stopper band, and an optimized number of access panels to maximize structural life and sub-system reliability, while also minimizing repair-cycle times. All TBM versions are fully certified and available today worldwide – direct.

WINGLETS

WINGLETS

The 2-foot high winglets will immediately become the signature of the TBM 940. Coupled with aerodynamic improvements to the ailerons, vertical stabilizer and new inner gear doors, these winglets significantly reduce drag while improving handling at low speeds and high angles of attack.

TAIL CONE & LIGHT

TAIL CONE & LIGHT

The TBM 940tail cone has been restructured making it more streamlined reducing drag and improving airframe efficiency. To improve visibility at night, we added an additional light at the tip of the tail of the aircraft. This gives improved lighting around the TBM 940 to enhance visibility of the TBM 940 by other aircraft in low-light conditions.

GEAR DOORS

GEAR DOORS

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of the airflow over the previous TBM airframe revealed a significant amount of turbulence in the area of the gear doors. As a result we’ve added an inner gear door to the TBM 940, which reduced turbulence and improves its aerodynamic efficiency.
