Daher has upgraded its single-engine turboprop.

Improvements to the TBM 940 include an automated throttle, automatic deicing system, and style and ergonomic cabin enhancements such as redesigned seats, additional thermal insulation for the sidewalls, a new central shelf with side storage, an additional 115-volt electrical outlet at the rear seat panel and USB ports.

European Aviation Safety Agency EASA and FAA certifications were expected to be received at Aero Friedrichshafen 2019 in Germany this month. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in late spring.

“The TBM 940 redefines the ultimate private aircraft: user-friendly, safe and efficient for both pilots and passengers,” said Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of the Daher Airplane Business Unit.

The TBM 940 includes Garmin 3000 avionics. It has a maximum cruise speed of 330 kt. and a range of 1,730 nm, the same as the TBM 930.
