Stéphane Mayer, president and CEO of DAHER-SOCATA, said: “AERO 2014 brings together an audience of some 30,000 visitors, many of which are pilots.

Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of DAHER-SOCATA’s airplane business unit, said: “At AERO we can see that successful general aviation products are the ones that offer a good performance/cost ratio, along with environmental friendliness – which are designed-in attributes for our new TBM 900.”
