Daher announced its introduction of the latest features and functionality on Garmin G3000 all-glass integrated flight deck configuration for TBM 930s – the high-end model in Daher’s very fast turboprop aircraft family.

Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, unveiled the TBM 930’s upgraded cockpit during a press conference at Lakeland, Florida’s SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-in Expo.

“ Our long-term partnership with Garmin enabled us to introduce the latest G3000 capabilities on the TBM 930, offering our customers the most modern cockpit technology available to optimize their flight operations,” Chabbert said. “Working together, our teams were able to integrate, test and certify this major update in just a few months.”

New functions available with the flight deck’s latest software version include:

Surface Watch™, which helps the pilot maintain enhanced situational awareness in the airport environment,
Baro VNAV, allowing approaches with vertical guidance when Wide Area Augmentation System navigation is not available, and 
Visual approach to assist the TBM pilot in performing visual approaches on non-controlled airports with vertical guidance.

 

Symbology also is improved with the current software version. A TBM silhouette on charts and maps allows instant identification of positioning, while informative messages of the crew alerting system are now displayed in white for easier distinction from caution (yellow) and warning (red) messages.

Connectivity also reaches a new level with the implementation of Garmin’s Flight Stream 510 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth linkup system to mobile devices running Garmin Pilot, Foreflight or FltPlan Go apps.

Building on the cabin restyling implemented last year for Daher’s very fast turboprop aircraft, every seat in Model Year 2018 TBM 930s and TBM 910s are the new heated seats, with the heating function controlled. Once the mode is engaged by the pilot via a master control in the cockpit, each occupant can choose whether to utilize the heating – and select either light or moderate heat settings.

Other new features on the Model Year 2018 aircraft are tailored for improved pilot interface. This includes backlighting on the cockpit’s central console to provide enhanced visibility at night for the manual trim, power lever, flaps lever and override controls. Additionally, a high-fidelity microphone has been incorporated in the pilot’s oxygen mask for clear communications with air traffic control when the mask is in use. 

Daher’s superior level of service for TBM aircraft is further evolving to meet customer expectations. In addition to the continued inclusion of Total Care Program (TCP) coverage as part of the TBM “Elite package,” Model Year 2018 TBM 930/TBM 910 customers will receive a host of new services: subscriptions to the Garmin Pilot database and Jeppesen Pilot Pak™ bundle and, in countries where available, a three-month subscription to Sirius XM weather and radio.
