TBM 930 Reverse Thrust

Do you use reverse thrust when landing the TBM 930?


I usually don’t use breaks when landing only when below 60kts. This makes the landing time a bit more realistic. So yes, I do:)


Yes I do because it slows you done in a perfect time

Yup, Just like on every other Aircraft I fly, I use Reverse Thrust on the TBM as well :)

I do, but not 100$%. On long runways, I usually don’t, but on shorter runways, I always do.

99% of the time i do not use reverse thrust but on short runways i tend to

I tend to use both. Reverse thrust to 40 kts and brake below that. I use 40 kts as the POH seems to convey that as the cutoff for optimum operations. It says to not use reverse thrust below 40 at the risk of throwing debris into the air, and hard braking above 40kts can cause the wheels to lock. Since we don’t have variable brake pressure available, i just assume brake application is done at full (or nearly full) strength. There is also a statement–“If permitted by the runway length, it is better to adopt a moderate reverse.”

I think some reverse thrust would be appropriate, but it really is pilot’s preference.

Usually I use reverse thrust at about 70% for almost all runways, but for really long runways I use about 30%, and shorter ones at about 85%. That’s for all aircrafts including the TBM. But for airliners, I go to reverse thrust 30% at 70 knots and stop using it at 60 knots, I then turn on brakes. For the TBM and Cessna C208 I go to about 15% at 50 knots, and turn on breaks at 40 knots.

Pulling down the rudder slide works too😉 in braking

Yes especially at KMIA and KLAX 😉😁
