The company certified with the FAA and French DGAC (EASA) the first, fully-pressurized, single-engine, turboprop aircraft in the world, the TBM 700A. The TBM 700 airframe design incorporated a variety of aluminum and steel alloys, including titanium, as well as advanced composite materials that come together in an airframe of unmatched structural strength and durability at the lowest possible weight at an affordable cost. Our design engineers employed fail-safe design techniques on the TBM airframe including the use of multiple load paths, a crack-stopper band and a minimum number of smaller access panels to maximize structural life and sub-system reliability, as well as to minimize repair-cycle times.

Introduction of the TBM 850. Strictly identical to the airframe of the TBM 700, the TBM 850 aircraft is also powered by the Pratt & Whitney PT6A turboprop engine. The new PT6A-66D powerplant produces 1825 eshp flat rated to 850 shaft horsepower and gives the TBM 850 jet-like performance with turboprop efficiency and economical operation.
From the early stages of its conception, the Daher TBM 900 was tasked to deliver fast travel at an affordable cost. It emerged when twin pistons were too expensive to operate, and yet pilots sought an aircraft with the same high level of safety and comfort of the light jets. The Very Fast Turboprop is that – an all-in-one with even more competitive features.
TBM by Daher is equipped to tackle the major challenges of the Performance 2017 strategic plan and to prepare for those of the future strategic plan. Our ambition is, in particular, to confirm its operational excellence, to continue its international development, and to pursue its transformation to become a large company.
