TBM 850 - fastest single turboprop in the world to display at the Abu Dhabi Air Expo.

Wednesday 11th January 2012

Daher-Socata has confirmed it will present the TBM 850 at the 1st General Aviation Exhibition in the Middle East during 6-8 March.

The TBM 850 is the fastest single turboprop in the world with a maximum cruise speed of 320 KTAS (593 km/h) at 26 000 ft (7 940m). A 850 hp engine version of the turboprop business aircraft TBM 700, known for its reliability, the TBM 850 combines the cruising speed and flying times typical of light jets with operating costs, low environmental signature, range and excellent payload of turboprop aircraft.

"We look forward to participating in the first edition of the exhibition in Abu Dhabi, whose geographical location and audience make it a must-attend event for those involved in general aviation," said Nicolas Chabbert, Director of the Aircraft Division at Daher-Socata. "Knowing that the general aviation sector is experiencing significant growth in the Middle East, we really want to be part of this show."

Running from the 6th to the 8th of March 2012 at Al Bateen Executive Airport, the Middle East's sole dedicated airport for business and general aviation, the Abu Dhabi Air Expo is the only General Aviation Exhibition in the Middle East.
