Daher upgrades its very fast turboprop aircraft family with the TBM 910
Among the key changes are the TBM 910’s Garmin G1000 NXi flight deck, which succeeds the G1000 version on TBM 900s – bringing a modernized high-resolution flight display design with significant performance enhancements.
The G1000Nxi’s state-of-the art processors provide a faster system boot-up and software loading, while also enabling the system to manage more aviation data and maps (including visual approach plates), and offering additional capabilities such as enhanced situational awareness. Another feature is the improved cockpit connectivity, allowing wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot app on a mobile device to the G1000 NXi system.
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’s cabin interior features new seat shapes and additional fittings that are identical to the TBM 930.
“Three words can describe the TBM 910: speed, readability and connectivity,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, during a Sun ‘n Fun press conference. “The TBM 910 is just as fast as its predecessor in flight, while offering pilots quicker access to cockpit information, along with safety-enhancing guidance and improved readability. Therefore, the TBM family of very fast turboprop continues to grow with the TBM 910 – an alternative to the high-end TBM 930 version.”
Deliveries of the TBM 910 will begin after the aircraft’s certification, which is expected this spring.
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 G1000NXi 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.
More than 200 orders have been booked for TBM 900-series aircraft – the TBM 900, TBM 910 and TBM 930 – since their launches, with 166 delivered through March 31, 2017. The TBM aircraft family is built by Daher on its industrial site at the Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées Airport in France’s Hautes Pyrénées region.
Overall, a total of 826 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.
