AVIACOM IS SOLE AREA SALES REPRESENTATIVE OF TBM aircraft
Tracing its origins to the pioneering Morane-Saulnier aviation company – and more recently the well-known SOCATA – Daher is the world’s oldest aircraft manufacturer in operation today. Having built airplanes for more than a century, Daher continually invests to maintain its capabilities as an aircraft Producer of reference.
Daher is an equipment manufacturer that develops Integrated Industrial Systems for aerospace and advanced technologies.By linking its know-how in industrial manufacturing, product and process engineering, logistics and transport, and industrial services, Daher designs and develops value-added solutions for its industrial partners, who benefit from this convergence of industry and services.
Daher has established itself as a leader in 5 fields of activity: aircraft manufacturer, aerostructures and systems, integrated logistics, nuclear services, and valves. Daher posts turnover of nearly a billion euros, and its order book stands at around three and a half years of turnover. Driven by bold innovation ever since it was founded in 1863, Daher has established itself today as one of the major players of the 3rd industrial revolution.
Released in 1990
In 1990 the TBM 700 was the first pressurized single-engine turboprop certified. The original model (TBM 700A) was followed by the B model, featuring a large access door to allow easy passenger and baggage loading, as well as newly designed seats to improve comfort. A new interior sported rich leathers and elegant woodwork finished in high gloss with black chrome or gold inlays.
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 (HautesPyrénées), France.
