TBM owners and operators have a new factory authorized service center in Central Florida. Orlando-based Exec Aero was recently named an official maintenance provider.

Daher (Booth C13307) recently appointed Orlando-based Exec Aero as its TBM service center for Central Florida. Exec Aero was created by a group of ex-employees of cargo/courier company Flight Express–one of the largest Part 135 carriers in the U.S., according to Daher.

Exec Aero general manager Nathan Marler dates the company’s relationship with Daher back to 2012. “We had a good look at the aircraft,” he said, “and decided it was definitely something different. We’ve carried forward our passion and pride for the TBM and are now pleased to offer more support as a TBM service center.”

While its reputation for high levels of expertise and customer service led to Exec Aero’s appointment, Daher v-p of customer support for the Americas Charles Holomek also noted that the shop’s location is a positive attribute, as well. He said, “[Exec Aero’s] base at Orlando Executive Airport is close to the SimCom training center, which is our partner for TBM training. This creates the possibility for pilot-owners to service their aircraft while they attend training courses.” Being at the nerve center of one of the world’s premier vacation theme park areas is another plus, said Marler. “Our close proximity to Daher’s U.S. headquarters at Pompano Beach Airpark allows us to work closely with the company on all aspects of factory support and service to TBM owners.”
