Daher debuts the new TBM 910 very fast turboprop aircraft at Germany’s AERO Friedrichshafen 2017
Friedrichshafen, Germany, April 6, 2017: Daher’s latest member of the TBM very fast turboprop aircraft family – the TBM 910 – is making its first public appearance at this week’s AERO Friedrichshafen, the largest general aviation trade show in Europe.
The TBM 910’s presence on Daher’s exhibit (Hall A3, Stand 321 at Friedrichshafen Airport’s exhibition center) comes just after the aircraft’s certification by the U.S. FAA and the European EASA airworthiness authorities on March 24.
“We’ve brought the new aircraft to AERO Friedrichshafen and are booking orders only a few days after the certification approval,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, during a press conference.
Chabbert added that AERO Friedrichshafen is an excellent venue for the TBM 910’s public debut, as the aircraft is expected to further increase interest in Daher’s very fast turboprop family – especially with the European Union’s new regulatory approval for Commercial Air Transport operations using single-engine turboprop in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) and at night.
The TBM 910 benefits from the same range, performance and technical features that have contributed to the TBM 900’s success in Daher’s six-passenger pressurized single-engine turboprop aircraft product line.
There are two main differences between the two models:
– The TBM 910’s new Garmin G1000 NXi all-glass integrated flight deck, which replaces the predecessor G1000 configuration;
– Cabin interior enhancements with new seat shapes and additional fittings, which are identical to the high-end TBM 930 version.
The Garmin G1000 NXi combines high-resolution display design with state-of-the-art processors. These improvements provide a faster boot up and software loading, while enabling the system to manage more aviation data and maps (such as visual approach plates).
Other advantages are the enhanced situational awareness and improved cockpit connectivity that allow wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot app on a mobile device to the G1000 NXi system. Additionally, an enriched “feel” with the flight deck’s new keyboard joystick gives more accurate panning and fluid navigation on the multi-function display pages.
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.
The TBM 900, TBM 910 and TBM 930 already have received more than 200 orders since their launches, with 167 delivered through March 31, 2017. The TBM 910 and TBM 930 are built by Daher on its industrial site at the airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées (Hautes Pyrénées), France.
Overall, a total of 829 TBM aircraft (TBM 700, TBM 850, TBM 900 and TBM 930 versions) have been delivered to international owners and operators, with the global fleet accumulating some 1.4 million flight hours.
