A century of innovation
Daher designs and produces two types of single-engine turboprop aircraft: the Kodiak, an all-terrain multi-purpose airplane; and the TBM, the world’s fastest single-engine turboprop-powered aircraft.
The Kodiak 100 Series II is a 10-seat unpressurized aircraft equipped with the Garmin G1000 NXi avionics. It is capable of operating from airports, on rough and very short strips, as well as on water when equipped with floats. Its robustness, combined with a 2,000 lb. payload, enables the Kodiak to carry out a wide range of operations: in commercial flights and use by pilot-owners, in government missions, for medical evacuation, as a skydiving platform, and more.
The TBM aircraft versions currently in production are the TBM 910, equipped with Garmin’s G1000 NXi avionics system incorporating a physical keyboard; and the TBM 940, outfitted with an autothrottle and the Garmin G3000 avionics with touch screens.
In order to enhance operational safety for pilot owners and operators, The Model Year 2020 TBM 940 will be equipped with HomeSafe™, an emergency autoland system that can guide the aircraft to a landing in the event of pilot incapacitation. HomeSafe™ integrates weather, traffic and terrain information to select the optimum airport for landing, considering such conditions as fuel range, flight distance and runway length.

A combined total of more than 1,200 TBM and Kodiak aircraft are in service today.
Daher has final assembly lines on two continents: one at its Tarbes industrial site in southwestern France, where TBM aircraft are built; and the other in the United States at Sandpoint, Idaho, home to the Kodiak assembly line. These industrial locations are accompanied by a Franco-American sales and maintenance network that enables Daher to offer a world-class level of service in the turboprop aircraft segment.
Design and production of high-end single-turboprop aircraft (pressurized and unpressurized)
Local production close to our customers (in France and the U.S.)
Constant evolution of the technology applied to our aircraft
Proximity to customers around the world
Featuring the same performance as Daher’s TBM 910, the TBM family’s newest member – the TBM 940 – is a concentration of technology. The world’s first single-engine aircraft incorporating an autothrottle integrated with its autopilot, the TBM 940’s touch-screen-enabled Garmin G3000 avionics allows pilots to optimize their flights with many intuitive features. As with all of the latest TBM aircraft, the TBM 940 incorporates Daher’s new reconfigurable cabin.
The Kodiak 100 Series II is a 10-seat all-terrain multi-purpose aircraft used worldwide by air taxi operators, businesses, pilot-owners and humanitarian organizations. With a high wing configuration, non-pressurized cabin and a sturdy fixed landing gear, it is perfectly suited for operations on short, rough strips. When equipped with floats, it can land on water, allowing it to serve areas without ground infrastructure.
The TBM 910 combines the speeds of a light jet with the operating costs and range of a turboprop aircraft. It is equipped with a Garmin G1000 NXi avionics system controlled by a physical keypad. Its TBM e-copilot® system, including an icing detection system, lowers the pilot’s workload with automation – facilitating operation with a single power level. Its totally-reconfigurable cabin offers comfort and connectivity to the passengers.
This version of the TBM 910/TBM 940 is designed for ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) missions. It provides a fast, all-weather air platform for surveillance operations and aerial photography, with a very competitive, cost-performance ratio compared to existing solutions. Quickly reconfigurable, the aircraft also can perform more traditional missions – such as transporting VIPs, light cargo and even medical evacuations.
