Key Aircraft Performance Data

Socata TBM850


The Socata TBM 850 is a high performance single engine aircraft designed to give pilots the advantages of the cruising speeds typical of a light jet, but with the more economical operating costs of a single-engine turboprop. It replaced the earlier TBM 700 in 2006. It is the world’s fastest single-engine turboprop with a maximum cruise speed of 320 KTAS at 26,000 ft. When suitably equipped, the TBM 850 meets Reduced Vertical Separation Minima standards allowing operation in RVSM airspace.

Inside the TBM 850

The TBM 850 is a high-performance six seat business turboprop, containing a luxury large cabin sized 14.96 ft long and 4ft in height and width. The cabin is easily accessible through a large electric door, stairs and ramp and contains 6 comfortable leather seats with adjustable backrests, folding armrests and a large folding executive table in the centre.

In keeping the luxury cabin comfortable there are 7 windows with pull down shades and a fully automated dual zone environmental control system as well as sufficient lighting, including individual reading lights at all seats and dome lights. Included in the cabin are 14/24V power outlets, CD or XM satellite music or radio as well as a lot of storage space.
