Daher-Socata Increases Deliveries Of Its TBM 850 Turboprop Aircraft In 2010

Thirty Eight TBM 850s Provided To Customers, Up From 36 In 2009

In sales figures released Wednesday, Daher-Socata shows that it delivered 38 TBM 850s in 2010, bringing the total number of the very fast turboprop aircraft received by customers to 222 since its introduction in 2006.


TBM 850

This is the fourth best year for the TBM program since 1990, putting the overall TBM fleet number at 545. In 2010, the combined flight time of these aircraft exceeded 800,000 flight hours. Most of the TBM 850s purchased in 2010 were acquired by U.S. customers (76 percent), with Europe representing 13 percent of the year’s sales. Latin America was next with five percent, followed by Asia-Pacific and Africa with three percent each.

 

Included in last year’s activity were Daher-Socata’s first deliveries of new TBM 850s in Nigeria and Poland – demonstrating the aircraft’s expanding market penetration. “The TBM 850’s continued success is due to its low operating costs and the loyalty of our customers – some of whom purchased their fifth TBM family aircraft in 2010,” said Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice-president of DAHERSOCATA Airplane Division. “We’re now looking forward to the introduction of the Daher-Socata 100th Anniversary Special Edition TBM 850 in 2011, which will offer a host of benefits – including an Exclusive Maintenance Program that lowers the scheduled maintenance costs for 5 years or 1,000 hours.”
