Daher-Socata is bringing its latest high-speed, single-engine turboprop the TBM 900 to Australian International Airshow at Avalon Airport.

The company said the TBM 900, which seats up to six people, would be on display throughout the event, which runs from February 24 to March 1.

Daher-Socata launched the TBM 900, an update from the TBM 850, in March 2014. The manufacturer delivered 51 TBM 900s, which are powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66D, in calendar 2014.

“We are continuing the momentum of our new TBM turboprop’s successful introduction in 2014, and we’re confident this latest demonstration will convince more Asian-Pacific customers of the TBM 900’s attributes,” Daher-Socata airplane division senior vice president Nicolas Chabbert said in a statement on Monday.

Daher-Socata said it hoped to demonstrate the TBM 900’s suitability for private and corporate owner/operators, as well as security and government users.
