In creating Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, the developers were assisted by engineers at Daher’s Aircraft Division to ensure the TBM 930 very fast turboprop aircraft’s characteristics are faithfully represented. Once finalized, the TBM 930 computer model underwent a final evaluation by the Daher engineering team.
