Aero-News: Quote of the Day (02.17.20)

“Based on the TBM’s proven design, the upgrades that Daher brings to each new model amply justified our purchases of the four aircraft... The TBM fits our transportation profile: I can plan for a 1,000-nautical mile flight under almost any conditions. And it is a pleasure to work with many of the same people for years, which is a credit to Daher. Additionally, I consider the five-year warranty of significant value alone in justifying a new acquisition.” Source: From comments made by Dr. Ian Blair Fries, as Daher has announced the delivery of its 300th TBM 900-series aircraft, which incorporates a personalized paint scheme for its owners, who received their TBM 940 version as the fourth TBM-family airplane they have acquired over the past 20 years.

Airbus has revealed MAVERIC (Model Aircraft for Validation and Experimentation of Robust Innovative Controls) its “blended wing body” scale model technological demonstrator. At 6.5 feet long and 10.5 feet wide, with a surface area of about 24 square feet, MAVERIC features a disruptive aircraft design that Airbus says has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up-to 20 percent compared to current single-aisle aircraft. Launched in 2017, MAVERIC first took to the skies in June 2019. Since then the flight-test campaign has been on-going and will continue until the end of Q2 2020.
