A Long Trip in a Daher TBM910

This news article is based on an aviation journalist accompanying a ferry pilot from Dahers factory in France to LA! It’s an interesting read, and shows you the ability this aircraft has, while highlighting the limitations. A cracking read for those interested in the TBM930’s arrival to our beloved Infinite Flight!

I saw this video yesterday. I think I will recreate this when the TBM comes out.

Thanks for sharing! I think I will definitely have to give this flight, or something similar, a try. Bookmarked for future reference. :)

Very interesting article! Really goes to show what the TBM 900 series is capable of.

That’s an absolutely CRAZY journey! Especially in the middle of the winter! It really shows you how the TBM is right in between an airliner and a GA aircraft.

Does our TBM have heated seats as well? :D

I thought the TBM could only fly for 2000NM, I’m really confused now about how that is possible going from France to California!x
