Daher unveiled the TBM 910 today at Sun ’n‘ Fun 2017 as the newest member of its TBM business turboprop family, succeeding the TBM 900. The new model is priced at $3.919 million and incorporates the next-generation Garmin G1000NXi integrated flight deck, as well as cabin interior and safety enhancements. According to Daher, the TBM 910 has the same range, performance and technical features as its predecessor.
The G1000NXi flight deck, which is a step up from the G1000 on the TBM 900, has faster processors that accelerate system boot-up and software loading, while also enabling the system to manage more data and maps, including visual approach procedures and overlays on the HSI. Another feature is the improved cockpit connectivity, allowing wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot app on a mobile device to the G1000NXi.
Meanwwhile, an enriched “feel” with the flight deck’s new keyboard joystick gives more accurate panning and fluid navigation on the multifunction display pages, Daher said. The TBM 910’s new cabin interior features updated seat shapes and additional fittings that are identical to those on the $4.195 million TBM 930.
The first TBM 910 was flown to Germany yesterday for the Aero Friedrichshafen show, where it will make its international debut. It received EASA approval on March 24, followed by FAA certification a week later. The first TBM 910 will be delivered this month.
