  1. Daher Socata Undrapes The TBM 940
    The latest iteration of the very fast single engine turboprop Socata line from Daher Socata has been unveiled by the company at an owner's seminar. Daher announced the news to the world on March 7th via Press Release and as you will imagine it is the successor to the not-so-old TBM 930. "The TBM 940 redefines the ultimate private aircraft: user-friendly, safe and efficient for both pilots and passengers," said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. "This newest TBM family member underscores our firm commitment to constant improvement for the ownership and operational experience with our very fast turboprop aircraft".
  2. The new aircraft which moves on from the platform of the previous TBMs features even more automation in the cockpit for pilots to reduce their workload. One of the new features introduced on the TBM 940 is increased automation for the deicing system – another first in the TBM’s aircraft category. When icing or ice accretion is detected – and if the pilot does not take action – the system is automatically activated for deicing of the airframe, windshield, propeller and the engine’s particle separator. An amber CAS (Crew Alerting System) message is displayed by the avionics, advising the pilot to clear the automatic activation and revert to the manual control mode. Automated throttle is also included on the new TBM940. Daher Socata says it is the first ever installed on a standard production turboprop aircraft weighing less than 12,500 lbs. Certification of the TBM 940 by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is expected to be received at Aero Friedrichshafen 2019, the largest European airshow for general aviation, allowing new aircraft deliveries late spring this year.
