Daher-Socata TBM 850

Popular with owner-pilots, the TBM 850 delivers speed and range comparable to that of some smaller jets. The standard Garmin G1000 avionics are easy to manage for a single pilot, and they are familiar to many moving up from smaller airplanes. Approach speeds are low for easier handling. The TBM 850 can land at runways as short as 2,100 feet, bringing even remote fields and city airports within reach. A wide electric door with an airstair makes it easy for passengers to get in and out of the cabin. Daher, a Europe-based international defense corporation, took over the TBM from EADS in 2009.
