Daher Delivers 20th TBM 960 Turboprop Single

After receiving FAA type certification in late June, Daher said today it has delivered its 20th TBM 960 turboprop single. South Florida businessman Johnie Weems—who has owned three earlier TBM variants—took delivery of the milestone airplane at Daher’s aircraft division in Tarbes, France, and along with ferry pilot Margrit Waltz made the transatlantic flight to Florida.

In all, 17 of the 20 TBM 960s delivered thus far have gone to U.S. customers, with the remaining three going to European customers. Daher aircraft division senior v-p Nicolas Chabbert said demand is strong for the $4.57 million airplane. “We’re nearly fully booked for 2023, with a significant percentage of these orders coming from customers in North America and Europe,” he noted.

Key features of the TBM 960 include the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6E-66XT engine and Hartzell’s five-blade Raptor propeller, which are linked to the type’s dual-channel digital engine and propeller electronic control system. Other improvements include LED ambiance strip lighting on both sides of the overhead cabin ceiling panel and electronically dimmable windows.
