As this year’s Sun ’n Fun winds down today, there’s a new TBM 850 owner: Dr. Bruce Feldstein of New Hampshire.
The sale was made at the fly-in by Ken Dono, director of sales at Columbia Aircraft Sales, TBM distributor for the northeastern USA.
“This is the first time we have sold a TBM 850 during Sun ’n Fun, which is the first show of the season in North America. It’s a wonderful conclusion for our participation to the show and an encouraging sign of the market,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice-president of DAHER-SOCATA Airplane Division and president of SOCATA North America.
The TBM 850 is touted as the world’s fastest single engine turboprop aircraft, with a maximum cruising speed of 320 KTAS at 26,000 feet.
DAHER-SOCATA has extended in 2012 its Exclusive Maintenance Program to cover scheduled maintenance costs for the original retail customer through the aircraft’s fifth annual inspection, or up to 1,000 total flight hours, whichever comes first.
