ANNIVERSARY DAHER-SOCATA Celebrates 100 Years - First Year of RAS TBM 850 Distributorship
DAHER-SOCATA marked a TBM 850 distribution milestone and 100 years of aviation excellence at AERO Friedrichshafen 2011.
DAHER-SOCATA marked two milestones at the recent AERO Friedrichshafen air show. Firstly- the company’s 100th anniversary of aviation excellence- which traces its roots to France’s Aeroplanes Morane-Saulnier; and secondly the first year of TBM 850 distributor representation in Germany and Austria with Rheinland Air Service.
Rheinland Air Service CEO Johannes Graf von Schaesberg said AERO provided an excellent opportunity to demonstrate his company’s partnership with DAHER-SOCATA for sales and support of new TBM 850s. “We thank DAHERSOCATA for its trust and backing in our organization to market the TBM 850 in Germany and Austria-” he added.
The AERO show was also part of DAHERSOCATA’s centennial activities in 2011 that honour 100 years of continuous aircraft production- beginning with its predecessor company- Aeroplanes Morane-Saulnier- created in 1911.
As part of the 2011 celebration- DAHER-SOCATA is offering a commemorative TBM 850 version with a special livery- accompanied by a five-year Exclusive Maintenance Programme that includes five free annual inspections or 1-000 flight hours with free scheduled maintenance costs. In addition- warranties on the centennial TBM 850 are extended to five years for avionics- five years for systems and seven years for the airframe.
