Daher introduces TBM 900 series to India
Potential buyers were able to see the latest TBM aircraft in New Delhi recently, after the demonstrator made the trip from France. Distributor SRK Aviacom says it is a cost-effective option for India's entrepreneurs.

Daher was at the New Delhi business aviation terminal at Indira Gandhi International Airport in September in cooperation with SRK Aviacom Pvt Ltd, the Indian area sales representative for TBM aircraft.

Nicolas Chabbert, senior VP of the Daher airplane business unit, says the rising interest for fast transportation in Asia is creating a market opportunity for the company's current very fast turboprop family members, the TBM 930 and TBM 910.

SRK Aviacom CEO Captain Sanjay Kumar adds: "By introducing Daher's TBM family of very fast turboprop aircraft, we aim to offer a cost-effective corporate aircraft for Indian businesses and entrepreneurs."

Daher recently enhanced the TBM 930 and TBM 910 passenger cabins with interior restyling, and further increased the comfort with electrically-heated seats. The cabin also offers multiple quick-change capabilities, including an innovative closed toilet compartment as an option.

The level of service for TBM aircraft is further evolving to meet customer expectations. In addition to the continued inclusion of Daher's Total Care Program coverage as part of the TBM Elite package, customers of the TBM 930 and TBM 910 receive a host of new services including 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.
