DAHER presents its 2016 range of turboprop aircraft and its services offering “Charter Pack” at EBACE 2016

Geneva, 23 May 2016 – Daher presented at a press conference of all its unique & industry offers services in the field of aerospace.
Aerospace and business aviation key player, Daher offers its expertise in both industrial and logistics to many aerospace players such as Airbus and Airbus Helicopters (H160), Dassault (Falcon range), Embraer (Legacy 450) and Gulfstream (G500/G600), while manufacturing its own range of turboprop TBM. This range now consists of the TBM 900 and TBM 930 and is also providing services in the field of maintenance, repair and modernization.
“Our presence at EBACE 2016 reflects our ambitions in aerospace. This is an area in which we continue to invest in modernizing our factories with fully digital assembly lines capable of providing major customers, in addition to our knowledge of aircraft manufacturer, with flexibility and competitiveness”, Commented Didier Kayat, CEO of Daher. “We also develop through the DaherLab, new technologies for our clients. For our customer aircraft operators, we recently expanded our family of aircraft TBM with highly efficient models whose success is undeniable.”
Besides presenting its new range of aircrafts 2016, the TBM 900 and TBM 930, on display at the show, Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of Daher’s Airplane Business Unit explained the market opportunities that open up with the European regulations authorizing soon commercial passenger on TBM.
“This regulatory change is expected to boost the entry level of business aviation and to encourage new players to equip. So we set up a commercial package offer – the “Charter Pack – based on what we offer already in the regions of the world where it is already authorized, to meet the needs of such operators, said Nicolas Chabbert. On journeys of around 500 to 1.000 Nm, the TBM 900 and 930 provide a speed/cost ratio unmatched, convenient for both companies for frequent trips needs and charter companies with punctual needs which are able to pay for itself even when carrying few passengers.”
The new regulation also opens up the possibility to single turboprop aircraft to perform medevac flights or organ transportation at a cost that could create opportunities to Daher for an “ambulance” version of the TBM currently being developed for an operator based in the French West Indies.

About Daher TBM aircraft – www.tbm.aero
Revealed on April 5, the 2016 models of the TBM 900 and the TBM 930 are the newest members of Daher’s TBM business turboprop aircraft family.
They benefit from the same performances and technical features that made great success of the TBM 900, a six passengers aircraft. Differences between the two models are concentrated on their primary avionics.
Daher’s Model Year 2016 TBM 900 retains the liquid crystal displays with Garmin’s G1000 avionics system – incorporating a pair of 10-inch screens and a multifunction display sized at 15 inches, along with a physical keyboard for navigation and communication functions.
New this year is the TBM 900’s Bluetooth FS 210 connection system, which enables the use of a tablet or smart phone to prepare maps and flight plans.
The Daher TBM 930 integrates a split-screen mode, enabling maps and flight plans to remain on the 3 screens of 12 inches each installed side-by-side with primary, traffic and weather information. The high resolution displays enhance their use thanks to the synthetic vision mode.
A new glass touchscreen controller serves as the pilot’s primary point of entry, displaying communication and other navigation controls.
In terms of aesthetics, Daher has developed a new interior for the TBM 930 with redesigned seating and headrests, along with a new choice of wood or carbon finishes. For an additional touch of style, polished metal is used for handles, door sills and steps.
They offer performance close to that of light business jets: maximum cruise speed of 330 knots (611 km./hr.), maximum range of 1,730 naut. mi. (3,200 km.), and provide greater flexibility with their load-carrying capacity and the ability to operate from small airports.
The TBM 900 and TBM 930 can perform short-haul flights (such as a round-trip Paris-Canne with a three-hour flight time), that is similar to commercial airline routing, and a cost of approximately €3,000 in carrying six persons.
The TBM 900 and TBM 930 can transport passengers to average distances of approximately 2,000 km. Some examples of such longer-range trips are:

 Paris-Le Bourget (LFPB) to Marrakech, Morocco (GMMX) – flight time: 4 hrs. 30 min.
 London (Biggin Hill/EGKB) to Agadir, Morocco (GMAD) – flight time: 5 hrs.
 Moscow (UUWW) to Courchevel, France (LFLJ) – flight time: 4 hrs. 45 min.
Another TBM 900 and TBM 930 advantage is the capability to operate from mountain airports, retaining performance even in hot weather conditions. The aircraft need only 1,200 meters to take off and land at an airfield altitude of 8,000 ft. (such as Mexico City) – even with a temperature of ISA + 30 °C.
The TBM 900 and TBM 930 enable pilot-owners to be able to operate the aircraft themselves, while being adapted to the needs of midsize companies that appreciate their range, speed, passenger-carrying capability, along with low operating costs and discretion at airports.
Based on the experience in France, where such operations have been approved since 2013, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) plans to allow this type of operation in Europe next year. It is already the case of Voldirect, a company based in Rennes, France. This new regulation would enable the deployment of air taxi services in Europe.
To date, Daher has booked a total of 140 orders for the TBM 900 and TBM 930 since the launch in 2014. 120 aircraft are delivered as May 15, 2016.
Daher builds the TBM 900 and TBM 930 on the company’s final assembly line at its industrial site located on the Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées Airport in France’s Hautes-Pyrénées region.
