DAHER-SOCATA has released a new app for customization of the TBM 900’s cabin interior, as well as the updated versions of its three primary apps — all available at no cost for the Apple iPad.
The new app, called the “TBM 900 Interior,” is a virtual configurator that allows the user to visualize various configurations for a TBM 900 cabin interior by selecting a combination of eight standard leather shades and 36 optional shades for wood, carbon fiber fittings, carpets and optional storage cabinets.
The updated “My TBM docs” application is the 1.4 version, now featuring documentation relevant to the new TBM 900. This application continues to offer free access for registered operators and owners to constantly-updated technical documentation for all TBM very fast turboprop aircraft models, including the Internal Parts Catalog, Maintenance Manual and Pilot Information Manual. The available documents represent more than 40,000 pages of information in PDF format, and are fully searchable, according to company officials.
The “My TBM docs” app’s library also features a video section for educational subjects. A “briefcase” section enables the user to tag preferred documents for on-ground preparation of flight operations.
A virtual tour of DAHER-SOCATA’s Tarbes, France factory – where TBM aircraft are made — is the subject of the “Manufacturing the TBM” app; while the “TBM 850 by DAHER-SOCATA” application is focused on the TBM 900’s predecessor, which is the most successful type in the TBM very fast turboprop family.
