How Daher Builds the TBM Turbo Prop

Hello community!

The amazing Daher TBM 930 is coming to Infinite very soon, and just like most, I can’t wait. I recently came across this short documentary on the factory where Daher builds this amazing aircraft, and I wanted to share it with you guys. This facility has been around since World War 1 and has produced many different aircaft since then. Currently, Daher-Socata uses it to build the TBM and several other aircaft including parts of the A380! It is amazing to watch how much time and effort goes into building these. They are clearly a very high quality product.

I also found a promotional video for the TBM 910 (basically the 930 but with different avionics). In this video Daher shows the step by step process of building and testing the aircraft:

I wonder if this is how FDS made the TBM for Infinite Flight?

Interesting videos though. Good find!

Wow! This is very informative! Nice to see how the plane was made before we actually fly it in IF.
