Parisian TBM owners to take advantage of local servicing
There are more than a dozen civilian TBMs based around Paris, and the French Ministry of Defence owns another. A new customer support based at Toussus-le-Noble will serve all of these customers and more.
The latest base is strategically positioned to serve the 'Silicon Valley of Europe' according to TBM.

Daher has opened a TBM customer support base serving the Île-de-France geographic region surrounding Paris, strategically situated in a technology cluster zone that has been dubbed ‘Europe's Silicon Valley’.

Located at the Toussus-le-Noble aerodrome southwest of Paris, this operation includes a workshop and offices in Hangar 111/112, positioned near the airport's main entrance.

As a subsidiary of the primary TBM service centre at Daher's Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees airport facility, this latest base is Part 145 approved by EASA and the FAA, enabling work to be performed on TBM aircraft registered in Europe and the US. It will provide maintenance services, including scheduled inspections for TBM aircraft covered by Daher's maintenance contracts. The station is operational during opening hours of the airport, weekends and holidays included, with a two-hour prior notification.

“With more than a dozen civilian TBMs based in the Paris region, plus the French Ministry of Defence's TBM fleet at the nearby Villacoublay Air Base, it was essential to offer our customers local maintenance services,” comments senior VP of the Daher airplane business unit Nicolas Chabbert. “Additionally, Toussus-le-Noble's close proximity to corporate research sites, company administrative centres and technology businesses makes it ideal in serving the needs of TBM owners and operators.”

Hugo Delpi, manager of the TBM service centre at Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees airport, will also be responsible for the new Toussus-le-Noble operation.
