TBM 930 – World’s Fastest Single Turboprop Aircraft!
Daher today unveiled this month the expanded range of its very fast turboprop aircraft family, which now consists of the TBM 900 and 930 version – each of which retain the performance and technical features that have made the TBM 900 a business aviation success. In 2014, the TBM 900 was introduced as an improved version of their TBM 850 with 26 modifications including winglets, a redesigned air intake and a 5-blade propeller, for better aerodynamics and performance. Maximum cruise speed was increased **330 kn at 64 US gallons per hour with a range of 1,730 nm (with 45-minute standard IFR reserves)
MaxSez: Seems the speed envelope for the IF TBM has a governor installed. 330kn/380mph/Mach.5 by the book at cruise but ours Overspeed’s above 265kn above and beyond 12kAGL even less than 265kn at 30kAGL Cruise (My 3 Overspeed Test Violations prove it)
Is a tweek to the IF TBM Speed parameter a good thing for our “World’s Fastest Single Turboprop Aircraft”. A vote is a yes!
Thanks for yr vote, No vote or question my logic, a pox on you; Max
