The Daher-Socata TBM 850 turboprop single gained type certification from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), which includes Russia, the French aircraft manufacturer said yesterday. “This recognizes…the work of Daher-Socata’s team in conjunction with the CIS aviation authorities, who are known to be demanding in their certification process, especially for operations in extreme weather conditions,” Socata senior vice president Nicolas Chabbert said. With the approval, the company can market its turboprop to the growing CIS market.
