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.
“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.”
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.
