Is the TBM-930 considered a light aircraft?

Hi guys, I’m new to the GA-ish flying. I’m now in a busy airport (LPPT) preparing for a 3 hours flight in the TBM but the ATIS says “no light aircraft accepted”. Does that include the TBM ?

Thanks for your quick answer !

I just asked for clearance on Ground and I wasn’t allowed to taxi because I was a light aircraft
