Daher links owners to charter operators for leasingDaher links owners to charter operators for leasing

Daher has developed a program called Fly And Charter Your TBM (FACT) that allows owners, whether private individuals or corporations, to lease their aircraft to commercial operators as a way of helping pay ownership costs.

Daher has created a leasing program to help owners pay for their aircraft.

“For private and corporate TBM owners who fly less than 200 hours annually, revenues generated by charter operators can help offset their ownership costs,” said Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “With FACT, we facilitate the contacts between owners and those seeking charter capacity, while also providing our expertise and guidance.”

Daher offers assistance including contacts with potential operators interested in using owners’ TBM aircraft for charters, help in preparing the necessary documents for these commercial operations, support in arranging insurance coverage, and technical advice, the company said in a press release.

FACT also includes the TBM Charter Pack, Daher’s inclusive support solution for higher aircraft utilization rates. The TBM Charter Pack extends the aircraft manufacturer’s TBM Care Program to cover commercial operations.

The TBM has a maximum cruise speed of 330 knots with a direct operating cost of $1.60 per nautical mile, the company said.
