General information about the Socata TBM 900
The Socata TBM 900 is a single engine turboprop aircraft. The machine was manufactured by the French company Socata, which is now known as Daher. Developed from its predecessor TBM700 and TBM 850, the TBM 900 is the fastest six-seater turboprop aircraft. The TBM 900 has some similarities to its predecessors. Characteristics are, for example, the hull shape, the retractable landing gear, as well as the pressure cabin and the weather radar on the left wing. In 2010, the development of the predecessor models began. Especially in avionics some changes have been made. The new Garmin G1000 has been installed and the machine benefits from a higher range. This is achieved through the aerodynamics and an air intake for the engine. In addition, a five-blade propeller is part of the aircraft. Socata says the TBM 900 requires more than 160,000 development hours and more than 200 flight hours to accredit and develop. After the approval of the machine, the production of the predecessor was discontinued. Since 2014, the machine is produced.
