DAHER TBM 700, 850 & 900
Specs, operating costs & information
French aircraft manufacturer Daher (previously EADS Socata) developed their first airplane in partnership with Texas manufacturer Mooney Aircraft back in 1990. The goal was to create a fast plane with room for 6 – they succeeded. The TBM 700 was the first iteration produced. Over the years the overall design has remained the same but improvements over time include adding G1000 or G3000 avionics, improved interior quality, and increased aerodynamic features. The current production models are the TBM 910 and 930.
The TBM lineup offers substantial speed increases over their competitors such as the Piper M600. The TBM is better compared to a light jet – in which it will burn substantially less fuel while not compromising on speed. The TBM series of aircraft continues to deliver a great mix of speed and efficiency unmatched by other turboprops.
