The latest version of Daher's Me & My TBM application has been released, bringing new capabilities and usability for this cloud-based app that is employed by an increasing number of TBM turboprop-powered aircraft owners and operators.
The application, which was originally introduced by Daher in 2018, leverages the company's big data expertise to collect, process and analyse more than four million data points generated each day by the TBM in-service fleet. Through its evolution during the past five years, Daher has continually enhanced the Me & My TBM app's capability for flight monitoring, furthering the ability of pilots to improve their flying skills, while also introducing sustainability features through eco-efficiency tracking.
“The sixth Me & My TBM app version marks Daher's commitment to improving the TBM flight experience, year after year,” comments Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of Daher's aircraft division. “This latest version reflects 18 months of dedicated work by our strengthened IT team and includes inputs from experts in the TBM piloting community.”
Among the app's main improvements are its enhanced readability, which was achieved by incorporating larger text, design enrichments and better pictorial presentations. Additionally, Version 6 introduces new flexibility that supports its use by multiple pilots while tracking their specific flights, addressing the needs of fleet operators, flight departments and aircraft renters.
In encouraging TBM pilots to further develop their airmanship, this Me & My TBM version now enables aviators to log flights that involve multiple landings, which is a particularly powerful tool for instructors during flight training debriefings. The application also can generate compliance reports based on the TBM's stabilised approach criteria (SAC). Another new feature is the ability to identify the specific types of flights, such as private or business trips, training, maintenance or ferry missions.
Another aspect related to the development of piloting skills is Daher's evolution of the friendly My TBM Challenge competition that enables pilots to compare their flight performance with others in the TBM community. TBM owners/operators can earn Voyager and Aviator trophies by accumulating points in the Challenge, while also earning recognition by attending major TBM events and safety seminars
In addition to the various technical improvements, Version 6 of the Me & My TBM app opens the possibility for automatic data transfer to other popular cloud-based applications, such as the CloudAhoy data-driven post-flight debriefing tool and the FlySto software for the processing of avionics log files.
