TBM-930 Cruise Speed And Altitude

Hello everyone!

What would be a typical TBM cruise speed and altitude. I am going to try and get it over the Atlantic - obviously I will have to stop. Most of the legs will be longer than 1.5 hours so will I be over FL280? What mach should I use?

Thanks

Mach 0.50 is a good speed to fly it at

Okay, thank you!

For the future you can find all this info below on this thread.

Oh, forgot about that thread! Thanks!

I did search before posting, for anyone who might say

FL310 is the highest the TBM goes. A good cruise speed for long range is also M55 or 206kts at FL280

252 knots IAS is the speed Socata gave.

@InfiniteFlightDeck… MaxSez: Wiki is your friend, suggest to research First.

We need the automatic torque for the TBM but yeah, you should get around .55 at max

Not specifically for this aircraft…but is the red overspeed line actually adjusted for accuracy in each aircraft model being either prop or jet…or should it just be regarded as a general indicator once you reach around 350 KIAS !
