First Polish registered TBM flies 100 hours
Tarbes, France. September 25, 2018 – The first TBM 910 delivered to a Polish owner/operator already attained the flight hour century mark since its December 2017 delivery, and has undergone the standard 100-hour standard inspection at Daher’s TBM Service Centre.
This aircraft is TBM serial number 1215, flown by Roman Sobczyk – a successful Polish businessman who is CEO of the Sokpol fruit juice producer in Poland. Created in 1992, Sokpol has experienced constant growth while exporting products to 19 countries – requiring the construction of new juice production plants with constant travel across Europe. A passionate pilot, Sobczyk also is an aerobatic pilot, owning a Zlin aircraft. With his TBM 910 acquisition, Sobczyk is able to combine his love for flying and his business travel needs.
“I selected the TBM 910 very fast turboprop because it meets my criteria as a transportation tool in terms of cost of operation versus performance, and it also is a very reliable aircraft to fly,” he explained. “Operating it since January, I can confirm the TBM 910 exceeded my expectations, especially in terms of service, allowing me to fly more in total confidence.”
Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of Daher’s Airplane Business Unit, acknowledged Sobczyk’s positive feedback, and underscored the company’s commitment to customer satisfaction for owners and operators worldwide. “Roman Sobczyk is an example of how successful businessmen benefit from intensive usage of their TBM aircraft. We see it as a confirmation of the TBM’s right combination of speed, comfort and efficiency.”
