Daher rolls out its 200th TBM 900 series turboprop
Daher has rolled out the 200th TBM 900-series very fast turboprop aircraft since the upgraded family was introduced in March 2014.
The milestone airplane, serial number 1200, is a TBM 910 version and will be received this week by Cutter Aviation in San Antonio – a Daher-authorised TBM distributor for Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.
Daher’s TBM 900 family – its sixth evolution from the original TBM 700 configuration – is the latest version of the company’s very fast turboprop concept, offered today in two production versions: the TBM 930, with Garmin’s G3000 integrated flight deck and touch screen controls, and the TBM 910, with Garmin’s next-generation G1000 NXi avionics technology replacing the original G1000 avionics suite.
Nicolas Chabbert, SVP of Daher’s Airplane Business Unit, said: “This 200th aircraft’s roll-out is proof that our TBM 900-series aircraft are not only the fastest single-engine turboprop airplanes, they are the fastest-selling TBMs ever – with 200 aircraft produced in less than four years.
“Further contributing to the TBM’s value is the dedication of the teams at Daher and its partners in meeting customers’ expectations.”
