Daher showcases its TBM 910 for air taxi at the Paris Air Show
Le Bourget, France, June 19, 2017: At this week’s International Paris Air Show, Daher is showcasing the TBM 910 – the latest member of its TBM very fast turboprop aircraft family – for use in rapid and efficient air taxi service.
This focus comes after Europe’s recent approval of commercial operations with pressurized single-engine turboprop aircraft in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) and at night, reflecting the growing acceptance of such operations worldwide.
« Our new TBM 910 version – as well as the other TBM-series aircraft – is seeing increased interest of commercial operators for its unmatched performance-to-cost ratio,” commented Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “This is opening new business opportunities beyond the wellestablished TBM user base of pilot-owners and corporate flight departments.”
He added the TBM 910 benefits from the same range and performance that have contributed to the success of Daher’s TBM 900-series six-passenger pressurized single-engine turboprop aircraft, which also benefits from such technical features as the TBM e-copilot® for lower pilot workload. The main difference from the predecessor TBM 900 version is the TBM 910’s new Garmin G1000 NXi all-glass integrated flight deck, which replaces the previous G1000 configuration. Garmin’s 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.
The TBM 910 also features cabin interior enhancements with new seat shapes and additional fittings, which are identical to the high-end TBM 930 version. Additionally, the TBM 910 can accommodate the “Elite Privacy” compartment – a quick-change option that integrates a lavatory area in the aircraft’s aft fuselage.
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 – such as 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 176 delivered through May 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 838 TBM aircraft (TBM 700, TBM 850, TBM 900, TBM 910 and TBM 930 versions) have been delivered to international owners and operators, with the global fleet accumulating some 1.4 million flight hours.
