Daher’s new TBM 940 first public appearance at AERO Friedrichshafen.
Daher’s latest addition to its very fast turboprop aircraft family – the TBM 940 – is receiving a warm welcome for its public debut at the AERO Friedrichshafen general aviation show in Germany.
This ninth evolution of the TBM product line is characterised by an increased level of automation in the cockpit. Aligned with Daher’s TBM e-copilot strategy of introducing increased functionality for operational safety improvements, the TBM 940 features an automated throttle and automatic icing detection system – both of which are firsts for a production turboprop aircraft in the TBM’s weight category.
“We are now awaiting certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to start initial deliveries,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “The aircraft’s new features represent a further evolution of our TBM e-copilot concept, providing assistance in single-pilot operations.” In the TBM 940’s cabin, an enhanced interior combines comfort and aesthetics with redesigned seats and the addition of practical amenities.
Daher is present at the AERO Friedrichshafen show until April 13th.
