As part of its presence at this week’s Paris Air Show, Daher is honoring the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War I with a symbolic paint scheme on one of its new TBM 930 very fast turboprop aircraft.
 
The stars and stripes featured on this TBM 930 are a reminder of the role of
France’s Morane-Saulnier – the predecessor aircraft manufacturer to Daher – in developing America’s nascent air power during the early 1900s. Morane-Saulnier’s “Parasol” high-wing aircraft served as trainers for the American Expeditionary Forces at Issoudun, France, which was the world’s largest air base at the time.
 
“The World War I centennial celebrates 100 years of French and U.S. cooperation, a camaraderie that continues today across the Atlantic,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. and President of Socata North America Inc., which is Daher’s subsidiary in the USA. “We are proud of Daher’s continued American presence, with nearly 1,000 airplanes in operation – composed of our TBM very fast turboprop, as well as the Rallye and TB general aviation aircraft. Backed by a network of 15 service centers, our company continues to give wings to U.S. aviators.”

 
Daher’s largest single market for its TBM aircraft family is the U.S., with more than 600 delivered to owners and operations in the country.
 
The latest TBM versions are the TBM 930 and TBM 910, both of which share the advantages of superior performance: a maximum cruise speed of 330 kts., a highly efficient 1,730-naut. mi. maximum range and a fuel consumption at economy cruise of 37 U.S. gallons per hour. The two models are differentiated by their primary avionics: Garmin’s G1000NXi avionics system with physical keypad for the TBM 910; Garmin’s G3000 with touchscreen controller for the TBM 930.
 
Daher is exhibiting the TBM 930, along with a TBM 910, on the Paris Air Show static display line (Static display area B4).
