TBM 940 sets out stall for the US
The TBM 940 incorporates an automated throttle and an automated icing detection system, enjoyed by twenty customers already. FAA certification now expands the aircraft's marketplace substantially.
Twenty customers have already received their TBM 940 and another 15 units are on the way.

The latest member of Daher's TBM family, the TBM 940, has logged 35 orders since its official launch in March of this year, with more than 20 already delivered. The type has just been certified by the FAA, adding to its existing EASA approval and that of CAAs in Brazil, Canada and Japan.

“The enthusiastic market response for the TBM 940 is definitely encouraging, as this aircraft reflects our vision of evolving the TBM by providing the ultimate flying experience for owners and operators,” says senior VP of the Daher aircraft business unit Nicolas Chabbert. “This is the latest step in our efforts to offer an aircraft family that combines performance and safety through continuous improvement across the TBM product line.”

Featuring an increased level of automation that reduces the pilot's workload and optimises performance and safety, the TBM 940 incorporates an automated throttle and an automated icing detection system, both of which are installed for the first time on a standard production turboprop aircraft weighing less than 12,500 lbs. (5.7 metric tons). Their integration in the aircraft further builds on Daher's TBM e-copilot strategy of introducing functionality for improved operational safety on the TBM product line.

Some of the TBM 940's enhancements, such as cabin upgrades for style, ergonomics and comfort, are applied as well to Daher's entry-level TBM 910 version, along with the automated icing detection system. Both aircraft also benefit from the latest Garmin cockpit features: Surface Watch, which gives pilots better situational awareness in the airport environment; BARO VNAV, allowing approaches with vertical guidance when WAAS is not available, and visual approach assistance in the execution of visual approaches at uncontrolled airports with vertical guidance.
