Daher celebrates 100th TBM 960 delivery

The French aircraft manufacturer Daher reached a milestone with the delivery of its 100th TBM 960.  

The TBM 960, launched in April 2022, is the latest addition to the TBM series. It features a new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6E-66XT turboprop engine, and the world’s first integrated autopilot featuring autothrottle functionality to equip a single-turboprop. The propeller is composed of five blades made of composite materials, which reduces noise emissions and vibrations.  

The aircraft was delivered to Kevin Kaseff, President of Titan Real Estate Investment Group.  

“We are particularly proud that the 100th TBM 960 has been received by a newcomer to the TBM community,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division. “It confirms that the TBM 960 is the quintessential TBM – meeting the expectations of entrepreneurs like Kevin Kaseff, who require a safe and efficient individual transportation tool.” 

With a capacity of six seats, the TBM960 has a range of 3,200 kilometers for a cruising speed of 600 kilometers per hour. It only needs 800 meters of runway to take off.
