Zadar, Croatia, February 27 2018 – Daher today announced the appointment of Aero Standard, an EASA Part 145 maintenance organization based at Zadar International Airport, as the Croatia Service Center for its TBM very fast turboprop aircraft.
This latest member of Daher’s global TBM service center network will perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for all TBM versions. Equipped with a mobile workshop for in-field maintenance and AOG (Aircraft on Ground) situations, Aero Standard provides a full range of support capabilities in its area of coverage in Eastern Europe.
“Our addition of a service center in this region is motivated by the increasing number of TBM owners from across Europe who are flying to the Adriatic region for business or leisure,” commented Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “In selecting Aero Standard, we chose a partner with a strong technical background acquired through its work for airlines, and which is committed to safety and high-quality work. This step reflects our commitment to make TBM customers benefit from superior service everywhere in the world.”
Aero Standard was founded in 2005 by three young engineers with one goal: to provide quality aircraft maintenance. “We are honored that our service center has been selected by Daher to support the TBM very fast turboprop aircraft,” said Aero Standard CEO Marko Kozarić. “The words: ‘Quality Aircraft Maintenance’ have appeared under our logo from the very first day, and we wear it with pride.”

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.
To date, a total of 879 TBM aircraft have been delivered to international owners and operators, with the global fleet accumulating some 1.5 million flight hours. TBM 900-series aircraft already have received 256 orders since their launch, with 217 delivered through December 31st, 2017. They are built by Daher on its industrial site at the airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées (Hautes Pyrénées), France.
