Question about possible Mistake from another Pilot today

Dear Infinite flight community,

Today with the most busy Departure I’ve ever had at KSFO I was holding short runway 1L. I was looking around only to see a Daher TBM - 930 holding short the same runway, but further down towards the end. I was confused because ATIS stated “No light aircraft accepted at this time.” So basically my question is if the TMB - 930 is a light aircraft? Thank you for your time and response to my question!

Sincerely,
@Captain_Ian : )

The TBM 930 is not considered a light aircraft in IF.

Hello!

C208 and TBM’s are not considered light aircraft under the IFATC Manual (Section 4.2.1)

Super relevant question, I just learned myself that the TBM-930 wasn’t GA! Thanks for everyone’s answers and again, great question!
