Daher has appointed Hradecka Letecka Servisni s.r.o. (HLS) as the authorised TBM service centre and sales representative for the Czech and Slovak Republics.

This latest expansion of Daher's worldwide support and sales network was marked with the first demonstration tour of the TBM very fast turboprop aircraft in the Republics.

HLS is located at the Czech Republic's Hradec Kralove Airport (LKHK). Its primary activity is the maintenance and service of general aviation aircraft in its service centre, which is an approved Part 145 facility that also is authorised for continued airworthiness procedures as a CAO organisation certified to Part CAO.

The company already is familiar with such Daher legacy aircraft as the Socata TB10 and TB20-series general aviation aircraft, as well as the TBM 700-series. HLS says it is well-known among aircraft owners and operators for its highly qualified technical personnel with more than 20 years of expertise in aircraft maintenance, and for providing high-quality services at competitive prices.

“We welcome HLS to Daher's global network of TBM service centres and as an authorised sales representative for the Czech and Slovak Republics,” explains Nicolas Chabbert, the senior vice president of Daher's aircraft division. “With the interest in Central Europe for the TBM as a fast and efficient aircraft, we wanted a capable partner in this region to expand our activities, which we found with HLS.”

Ales Kurka, the general manager at HLS, added: “HLS is committed to providing professional support for the TBM in our region, and we look forward to pursuing sales opportunities that will bring this very fast turboprop aircraft into service with more owners and operators.”
