Daher announces JP Martins Aviacao as its new TBM Distributor for Brazil
Lakeland, Florida, USA, April 7, 2017: Daher today announced the appointment of J. P. Martins Aviação as its exclusive TBM Authorized Distributor for Brazil, following an agreement signed this week at the Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in and Expo at Lakeland, Florida.
The company has marketing and sales responsibility for the TBM 910 and TBM 930 very fast turboprop aircraft, as well as providing parts and technical support for TBM aircraft currently operating in Brazil.
J. P. Martins Aviação is based at São Paulo’s Campo de Marte Airport, with bases in the cities of Goiânia and Londrina. The company was created in 1965 by Jeremias de Paula Martins – a figure in Brazilian general aviation – for aircraft sales, subsequently developing activities in parts distribution and maintenance.
“The general aviation expertise and the passion of its team led to our selection of J. P. Martins Aviação as our new authorized distributor for Brazil, where there is a strong demand for our TBM aircraft – with 25 aircraft already registered in the market,” commented Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “We are confident J. P. Martins Aviação will provide excellent care for the existing fleet, while developing TBM sales in Brazil, where aviation is crucial for the economy.”
Paulo Roberto Martins de Oliveira, the Sales Director for J. P. Martins Aviação, added: « We are committed to growing the TBM fleet in our country, as well as ensuring high-quality maintenance for this very fast turboprop aircraft family – which is extremely well suited to the Brazilian marketplace.”
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 829 TBM aircraft have been delivered to international owners and operators, with the global fleet accumulating some 1.4 million flight hours.
TBM 900-series aircraft already have received more than 200 orders since their launch, with 167 delivered through March 31, 2017. They are built by Daher on its industrial site at the airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées (Hautes Pyrénées), France.
