Daher delivers 54 TBM aircraft in 2016 and prepares a new integrated flight deck for the TBM 900 version

Daher's Airplane Business Unit today announced the delivery of 54 TBM 900/TBM 930s in 2016, underscoring the success for these latest members of its very fast turboprop aircraft family, which continue to benefit from system enhancements.

Two-thirds of the 2016 deliveries involved the TBM 930 version, which incorporate Garmin's G3000 flight deck with the first-ever touchscreen-controlled glass flight deck designed for light turbine aircraft. The remaining deliveries were of the TBM 900 configuration, 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 to customers in the United States and Canada. Europe was in a solid second position with nine deliveries: composed of four aircraft provided to the United Kingdom, two for 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,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “We are backing this success with the coverage of our TBM Care Program (TCP), which remains a unique asset for the owner/operator.”

Chabbert revealed that Daher is now offering 2017 Model Year TBM 900s with a new avionics enhancement incorporating Garmin's G1000NXi next-generation integrated flight deck.

“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,” he added. “This upgrade includes a modernized flight display with significant performance enhancements, and brings additional capabilities such as two-way wireless cockpit connectivity.”

Daher already is accepting orders for the G1000NXi-equipped TBM 900, which is expected to be certified in a few months.
