Daher has delivered 54 TBM 900/TBM 930s in 2016.
Two-thirds of the 2016 deliveries were TBM 930s, which incorporate Garmin’s G3000 flight deck. The remaining deliveries were TBM 900s, equipped with Garmin’s G1000 all-glass avionics suite.
North America remained the lead market for TBM aircraft, accounting for 41 of last year’s deliveries. Europe was second with nine deliveries: four aircraft in the UK, two in France, and one each in Germany, Italy, Poland and Switzerland. Latin America ranked third with two deliveries to Mexico; while Asia-Pacific counted for the remaining delivery, for a customer in Thailand.
“The 2016 results confirm that customers worldwide continue to appreciate the value proposition of our TBM product line – which we extended last year with the TBM 930 version.”
Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of the Daher Airplane Business Unit said: “The 2016 results confirm that customers worldwide continue to appreciate the value proposition of our TBM product line – which we extended last year with the TBM 930 version.”
Daher is now offering 2017 Model Year TBM 900s with a new avionics enhancement incorporating Garmin’s G1000NXi next-generation integrated flight deck.
Chabbert said: “Garmin rolled out the G1000NXi this month as the successor to its G1000, which we introduced on our TBM 850 in 2008 and retained with the TBM 900 beginning in 2014. This upgrade includes a modernised flight display with significant performance enhancements, and brings additional capabilities such as two-way wireless cockpit connectivity.”
