Daher announced a program to pair TBM turboprop owners with commercial charter operators. Dubbed Fly and Charter your TBM (FACT), the program links owners and charter operators, providing the needed initial documentation, insurance guidance and technical advice.
FACT also incorporates the TBM Charter Pack, a Daher-designed support solution for higher aircraft utilization rates. The TBM Charter Pack extends the aircraft manufacturer’s TBM Care Program (TCP) to cover commercial operations and provides continuing airworthiness monitoring through CAMP systems, while also offering a dedicated TBM maintenance hotline and TBM professional training courses.
At the 2016 NBAA Convention Daher said the TBM aircraft family is “well-suited for charters and on-demand transportation — especially from community airports where operations benefit from the aircraft family’s speed, economical operating costs and the ability to serve smaller runways. Demand for such services is growing worldwide, especially as more airworthiness authorities approve commercial flight operations with single-engine turboprops.”
