If you’re in the market for a single-engine turboprop aircraft, the Daher TBM 850 may already feature high on your shopping list. As an upgrade on the earlier TBM 700 series, the TBM 850 was first certified in 2006 and was produced until 2013.
Equipped with a single Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66D engine, the TBM 850 offers more range, payload, speed, and a quicker rate of climb than its TBM 700 predecessors.
