Daher’s Aircraft Division is marking the company’s presence at the 50th SUN ’n FUN Aerospace Expo with its Model Year 2024 version of the TBM 960 fast and efficient turboprop-powered aircraft, which incorporates new updates for enhanced pilot awareness and lower workload – while also sporting an updated paint scheme. 

The TBM 960’s digital e-COPILOT® functionality has been further evolved to include features that range from facilitated pre-flight preparation to enhanced peace-of-mind protection with the HomeSafeTM emergency autoland system. 

The digitally controlled TBM 960 is the fastest-selling version of all the members in our TBM aircraft family, and it continues as a market reference in terms of safety and efficiency,” said Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division. “This is underscored by our backlog that exceeds two years of production, with some 120 TBM 960s delivered to date.” 

Among the enhancements in the TBM 960’s Model Year 2024 version a pilot inactivity detection function for the HomeSafeTM emergency autoland system, is automatically activated after 30 minutes if there is no pilot interaction with the aircraft’s systems. As a highly appreciated “peace of mind” feature on the TBM 960, HomeSafeTM brings the airplane to a runway touchdown if the pilot becomes incapacitated. 

At this year’s SUN ’n FUN Aerospace Expo, the Daher Group parent company is a major supporter – sponsoring the “Future ’n Flight by Daher” Plaza, where it also will be participating in the air show’s Career Fair tent to highlight exciting employment opportunities for Daher’s aircraft manufacturing, logistics and industrial services in Florida and across North America.
