  1. First 2017 TBM930 Delivered by Daher Socata
    The first 2017 year TBM930 by Daher Socata has been delivered to its customer. What is a bit more special about this one is that it was handed over with a host of brand new features that aren't available on any of the other TBM930s. The newly-delivered Model Year 2017 TBM 930 has the popular “Elite Package” enhanced interior, and includes the optional AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag in the torso section of 4-point seatbelts at the two cockpit seats. When triggered, the airbag deploys up and away from the seated occupant, providing protection to the head, neck and torso. The TBM 930’s AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag meets FAR 23.562 26g requirements for pilot/co-pilot seats, and provides additional safety for survivable impacts. Features of the Model Year 2017 TBM 930 for passengers include a redesigned cabin with new seat cushions, headrest and armrest; along with seat fairings that are now covered with Ultraleather® synthetic fabric material offering increased longevity.Three cabin interior harmonies are available for customer choice: Black Diamond, Beige Luxor and Agate Grey. Brushed aluminum fittings for the main door stair, handrail, pilot door and rear seat side beam are standard, with a polished finish available as an option.
  2. Cabin temperature controls are now backlighted, and passengers have access to high-power USB charging ports installed on the cabin’s left and right sides. Also in the cockpit are a new digital hour meter for flight time tracking and three high-power USB charging ports (5 V/3 Amp). As in previous years, aircraft’s “Elite Package” includes Daher’s highly-appreciated TBM Care Program (TCP), covering all scheduled maintenance costs for five years or 1,000 hours (whichever comes first). By providing a five-year standard warranty on airframe, engine, avionics and systems, this coverage clearly minimizes the TBM’s operational costs. All Model Year 2017 TBM 930 and TBM 900 aircraft are configured to accommodate the “Elite Privacy” enclosure – a quick-change option that integrates a lavatory area in the TBM’s aft fuselage. It serves as a bench-type seat with a low divider wall when not in use during flight, and converts to a fully private toilet compartment at the touch of a button.
