Spain’s Aviastec has joined Daher- Socata’s sales network. The Oviedo company will market the TBM850 in Spain and Portugal. Aviastec also has a maintenance facility at Madrid Cuatro Vientos airport. In Argentina, Socata delivered the first multi-mission version of the TBM850, to the country’s airport security police.

TBM700 owners can upgrade their cockpits to the Garmin 1000 suite. The first two modified aircraft have been delivered. One of them is military (as part of a 26-aircraft contract with the French Ministry of Defense) and the one other is civil. The STC is FAA- and EASA-approved.

Socata is celebrating 100 years of continuous aircraft production since the founding of its predecessor company, Aeroplanes Morane-Saulnier.
