Daher’s top-of-the-line TBM 960 turboprop-powered aircraft makes its European event premiere at AERO Friedrichshafen
AERO, Friedrichshafen, Germany, April 19, 2023 – Daher’s efficient and fast single-engine turboprop aircraft – the TBM 960 – is making its first public European appearance at this week’s AERO Friedrichshafen, Europe’s largest general aviation exhibition.
Displayed on Daher’s exhibit stand in Hall A3 (Booth #305) is a TBM 960 configured in the new “Sirocco” paint scheme, which is owned by a private European customer.
“The TBM 960 has surpassed all previous sales records, confirming the capabilities of digital power for this latest high-end member of our TBM 900-series aircraft family,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division. “Owners and operators give high marks for its superior piloting experience, high level of safety and increased cabin comfort, as well as the enhanced efficiency and sustainability.”
To date, Daher has delivered a total of nearly 60 TBM 960s. In addition to the majority of aircraft received by North American customers, European deliveries of the TBM 960 have been made in France, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The Model Year 2023 TBM 960’s Garmin G3000® integrated flight deck is further enhanced with updated software. Additionally, Daher’s continued focus on ergonomics for operational safety and situational awareness includes a control yoke activation button for the Garmin Electronic Checklists, and a repositioning of the altimeter setting button.
Key features of the TBM 960 include the new PT6E-66XT turboprop engine – purpose-built by Pratt & Whitney Canada for this aircraft, and Hartzell Propeller’s five-blade composite propeller with the Raptor™ lightweight hub. Both the engine and propeller system are linked to the TBM 960’s dual-channel digital Engine and Propeller Electronic Control System (EPECS).
