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.
JetSet Aviation Holdings’s acquisition of the type certificate and associated rights for the MS760 ParisJet could well breathe new life into an aircraft that former owner Socata had probably written off. Designed, built and originally certified in France in the 1950s by Morane-Saulnier, the predecessor of Socata, the new owner calls the MS760 the world’s first very light jet.
