Daher today announced the TBM 910 as the newest member of its TBM business turboprop aircraft family, succeeding the TBM 900 version with the incorporation of a next-generation integrated flight deck, along cabin interior and safety enhancements.
Unveiled at today at the U.S. Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in and Expo at Lakeland, Florida, Daher’s TBM 910 benefits from the same range, performance and technical features that have contributed to the TBM 900’s success in Daher’s six-passenger pressurized single-engine turboprop aircraft product line.
Among the key changes are the TBM 910’s Garmin G1000 NXi flight deck, which succeeds the G1000 version on TBM 900s – bringing a modernized high-resolution flight display design with significant performance enhancements.
The G1000Nxi’s state-of-the art processors provide a faster system boot-up and software loading, while also enabling the system to manage more aviation data and maps (including visual approach plates), and offering additional capabilities such as enhanced situational awareness. Another feature is the improved cockpit connectivity, allowing wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot app on a mobile device to the G1000 NXi system.
An enriched “feel” with the flight deck’s new keyboard joystick gives more accurate panning and fluid navigation on the multi-function display pages.
The TBM 910’s cabin interior features new seat shapes and additional fittings that are identical to the TBM 930.
“Three words can describe the TBM 910: speed, readability and connectivity,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, during a Sun ‘n Fun press conference.
“The TBM 910 is just as fast as its predecessor in flight, while offering pilots quicker access to cockpit information, along with safety-enhancing guidance and improved readability. Therefore, the TBM family of very fast turboprop continues to grow with the TBM 910 – an alternative to the high-end TBM 930 version.”
