Daher TBM 910 makes its US public debut at 2017 AirVenture Oshkosh
Daher TBM 910 makes its U.S. public debut at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA, July 24, 2017: Daher is showcasing the latest member of its very fast turboprop aircraft family for the first time publicly in the U.S. with the TBM 910’s appearance during this week’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in at Wittman Regional Airport, Wisconsin through July 30.
Equipped with the new Garmin G1000 NXi all-glass integrated flight deck, the TBM 910 is being exhibited in the main aircraft static display area near Boeing Plaza.
The G1000 NXi replaces Garmin’s previous G1000 configuration used by Daher on TBM 900 versions, introducing a 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). “Since the TBM 910’s formal announcement only three months ago, this aircraft has captured attention of the owner/pilot market, and a dozen already have been delivered to enthusiastic customers on both sides of the Atlantic,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, Daher’s Airplane Business Unit Senior Vice President, and CEO of the U.S.-based SOCATA North America subsidiary.
He noted 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, and this latest version also includes such proven technical features as the TBM e-copilot® for lower pilot workload.
The TBM 910 enhanced interior includes the optional AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag in the torso section of 4-point seatbelts at the two cockpit seats. When triggered, the airbag deploys up and away from the seated occupant, providing protection to the head, neck and torso. The TBM 910’s AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag meets FAR 23.562 26g requirements for pilot/co-pilot seats, and provides additional safety for survivable impacts.
Other TBM 910 advantages are the enhanced situational awareness, and improved cockpit connectivity that allows wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot app on mobile devices 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.
For its U.S. public debut at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this week, the TBM 910 is appearing alongside Daher’s TBM 930 (equipped with Garmin’s touchscreen-controlled G3000 flight deck), as well as a flightworthy replica of the Morane-Saulnier Type L aircraft – a TBM-ancestor that first flew more than 100 years ago.
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 900; 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 847 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 185 delivered through July 15, 2017. They are built by Daher on its industrial site at the airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées (Hautes Pyrénées), France.
