Stephane Mayer, president and CEO of DAHER-SOCATA aerospace and defense, says: “We thank the EAA for the honor of showing our new TBM 900 today at Boeing Plaza, where so many notable aircraft and spectacular projects have been presented. This gives us the opportunity to highlight the TBM 900 as the flagship of our aerospace activities, and it comes at a time we want to further develop our presence in North America.”
Nicolas Chabbert, the senior vice president of DAHER-SOCATA’s airplane business unit, says: “The TBM 900’s presentation today at AirVenture’s prime display location confirms the recognition of this aircraft as the civil aviation market’s no. 1 single-engine turboprop based on performance. We want to share our passion for aviation with the AirVenture’s crowds in Oshkosh, and especially with our TBM pilots and friends.”
