Daher has showcased the most recent features and functionality on its high-end TBM 930 in a new video released today, “TBM 930 – The Magic Touch,” available below.
The TBM 930 flight deck’s latest software version include a raft of enhancements, such as:
– Surface Watch™, which helps the pilot maintain enhanced situational awareness in the airport environment,
– Baro VNAV, allowing approaches with vertical guidance when WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) navigation is not available, and
– Visual approach assistance for pilot in performing visual approaches with vertical guidance at non-controlled airports.
Connectivity also reaches a new level on the TBM 930 with implementation of Garmin’s Flight Stream 510 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth linkup system to mobile devices running Garmin Pilot – which includes now FltPlan Go – and Foreflight apps.
Building on the cabin restyling implemented by Daher last year, Model Year 2018 TBM 930s and TBM 910s have new heated seats. Other new features introduced on Model Year 2018 aircraft includes backlighting on the cockpit’s central console to provide enhanced visibility at night for the manual trim, power lever, flaps lever and override controls. Additionally, a high-fidelity microphone has been incorporated in the pilot’s oxygen mask for clear communications with air traffic control when the mask is in use.
