  1. TBM 940 HomeSafe™ Autoland Certified
    Garmin has been at the forefront as the platform for Autoland type systems being implemented on small executive turboprops in the last year. One variant of it is on the TBM 940 -the latest iteration of the TBM from Daher Socata- the company calls HomeSafe™. Since unveiling it to the public Daher now confirms that the high-tech software is now certified by EASA (European Aviation Safety Authority) and FAA (Federal Aviation Authority, United States).
  2. "This is a game-changing step that expands flight safety from pilots to the passengers themselves, and it comes at a time when the value of life is more important than ever," said Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division. "Daher’s innovation has taken us to this turning point, and we are committed to providing the highest safety and protection to pilots, their families and passengers. Without a doubt, HomeSafe™ will become an aviation standard." HomeSafe™ is the ultimate step of the TBM e-copilot® concept evolution, after the autothrottle introduction on the TBM 940. It is based on Garmin’s Emergency Autoland system – available as a part of the G3000 integrated flight deck – and has been under development for the TBM since 2017 by the airplane systems department at Daher’s Aircraft Division. This work included software implementation and an intensive flight test campaign that included two hundred automated landings. If the system is somehow accidentally activated, the pilot can easily override the Autoland by disconnecting the autopilot.
