Tarbes, France, December 19, 2022 – Daher today announced the initial delivery of a Swiss-registered TBM 960 very efficient turboprop aircraft, which was received by Paolo Buzzi – who has explored the world in his previously-owned TBM 930.
This top-of-the-line TBM 960 increases the number of TBMs based in Switzerland to 12, which is an impressive number for a country with only 8.7 million inhabitants. Daher’s TBM area sales representative in Switzerland is SwissFly Aero, based in Zurich.
Buzzi is a founding partner and board member of Swissquote, the leading online bank in Switzerland. He is a passionate and experienced pilot with 2,200 flight hours – including 1,200 hours logged in his TBM 930. During 2018, Buzzi was joined by his wife Anna on an around-the-world trip in the TBM 930, organized by Air Journey, covering 25,824 nautical miles in 108 hours.
“At the end of our circumnavigation, it just looked like the world was smaller,” Buzzi stated. His decision to buy the TBM 960 was influenced by factors that included Daher’s five-year warranty and the aircraft’s HomeSafe™ emergency autoland system, a standard feature that was of particular interest to his wife. After completing complementary transition training on his new TBM 960, Buzzi plans a new flight expedition to the other side of the world – more precisely, to New Zealand.
