Daher appoints Simavia as its TBM Aircraft Sales representative for Russia
Simavia is a growing aviation company that develops general aviation and business aviation services in Russia, operating from its Krasnodar headquarters (in the Kuban region near the Black Sea) and a base at St. Petersburg. It has four main activities: aircraft sales, maintenance services, aviation training and VIP charter.
The company also is well known in Russia as organizer of the Kuban Airshow – one of the largest such annual aviation events in Russia – at which the TBM 930 aircraft version made its Russian debut earlier this year.
“We are pleased to be teaming with Simavia – a dynamic, dedicated and high-quality supporter of Russian aviation – in the promotion of our TBM very fast aircraft family in Russia,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “This partnership comes at a time when the need for on-demand transportation in the world’s largest country continues to develop – especially from remote community airports, where operators will benefit from the TBM’s speed, economical operating costs, and the ability to serve smaller runways.”
Simavia CEO Simon Mnoyan added that his company’s designation as TBM Aircraft Sales Representative brings a high-end aircraft family to its large range of services.
“In helping develop Russian general aviation and business aviation, our strategy is to cover all aspects of such operations,” he stated. “We spare no effort in promoting the culture of personal aircraft within Russia, and the TBM is fully aligned with this strategy.”

About Daher’s TBM aircraft: Focus on the TBM 900 and TBM 930 – www.tbm.aero
Unveiled in April, the 2016 models of the TBM 900 and the TBM 930 are the newest members of Daher’s TBM business turboprop aircraft family.
They benefit from the same performance and technical features that contributed to the great success of the TBM 900, a six-passenger aircraft. Differences between the two models are concentrated on their primary avionics.
Daher’s Model Year 2016 TBM 900 retains the liquid crystal displays with Garmin’s G1000 avionics system – incorporating a pair of 10-inch screens and a multifunction display sized at 15 inches, along with a physical keyboard for navigation and communication functions. New this year is the TBM 900’s Bluetooth FS 210 connection system, which enables the use of a tablet or smart phone to prepare maps and flight plans.
The Daher TBM 930 integrates a split-screen mode, enabling maps and flight plans to remain on the three screens of 12 inches each, installed side-by-side with primary, traffic and weather information. Utilization of the high-resolution displays are enhanced thanks to the synthetic vision mode.
A new glass touchscreen controller serves as the pilot’s primary point of entry, displaying communication and other navigation controls.
The TBM 900 and TBM 930 offer performance close to that of light business jets: a maximum cruise speed of 330 knots (611 km./hr.), maximum range of 1,730 naut. mi. (3,200 km.), while providing greater flexibility with their load-carrying capacity and the ability to operate from small airports.
Another feature of the TBM 900 and TBM 930 is their capability at mountain airports: they maintain their performance even in hot weather and only need 1,200 meters of runway to take off and land (even at such airports as Mexico City, with an altitude of 8,000 ft. and at an ISA temperature of +30°C).
The TBM aircraft family is well suited for public passenger transport, and its use in such operations is expanding with changes in airworthiness regulations for single-engine turboprop aircraft. In France, regulations have enabled the TBM to be used for public passenger transport since 2013. Based on the French experience, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) plans to allow this type of operation across Europe beginning next year.
