Productivity boost draws French business to the TBM850
The Abalone Group, a Nantes-based employment agency company, has taken delivery of the latest Daher-Socata TBM850 Elite turboprop aircraft, and will use it for long-distance trips with company executives and managers.

The Abalone Group, a Nantes-based employment agency company, has taken delivery of the latest Daher-Socata TBM850 Elite turboprop aircraft, and will use it for long-distance trips with company executives and managers.

“We have been working on this project for the past year in conjunction with our business development plan, with the full understanding that while regular trips are needed, they are time-consuming and create stress and fatigue,” explains Sacha Moutel, project manager at the Abalone Group. “The TBM 850 Elite will help us increase our productivity, bringing the best in private aircraft travel together with rapid en-route times and highly cost-efficient operations.”

Moutel points out that a corporate aircraft ensures access to cities which are under-served or not serviced at all by scheduled direct commercial flights, and opens small airports that are convenient and closer to the final destination.

“We are proud that a dynamic company such as the Abalone Group has selected our TBM 850 Elite for its corporate transportation needs,” says Nicolas Chabbert, the senior vp of Daher-Socata's aircraft division.
