The TBM 900 benefits from everything that Daher has learned from the previous versions of the TBM family. The TBM 900 offers even greater speed, range and efficiency than previous TBMs. It has also improved short field capabilities and, as a result, can be used on just about all general aviation runways. Approaching at only 90 KIAS or less, short runways or short unpaved surfaces will accommodate the TBM 900.
The new 5-blade Hartzell propeller reduces noise and improves take off performance. The availability of thrust reversal on the TBM 900 substantially improves safety margins over aircraft without these capabilities when flying into shorter fields, (particularly when the surface is wet) allowing landing on extremely short strips and runways safely using less than 1,500 ft. This is very different than the case of most light jets limited by their “hot and high” runway performance. In other words, a runway available to the TBM is simply not available to others or it will require them substantial reductions of cabin and fuel load.
By combining its expertise in industrial manufacturing, product and process engineering, logistics and transport, and industrial services, Daher designs and develops Integrated Industrial Systems. Daher has established itself as a leader in 5 fields of activity: aircraft manufacturer, aerostructures and systems, integrated logistics, nuclear services, and valves.
Daher posts annual turnover of nearly one billion euros, and its order book stands at around three and a half years of turnover. Driven by bold innovation ever since it was founded in 1863, Daher has established itself today as one of the major players of the 3rd industrial revolution.
