Cannes, February 3, 2011 - The French firm, Daher-Socata, will once again be the official partner of the Cannes International Exhibition of General Aviation (Cannes Airshow), which runs from June 9 through 11, 2011 at Cannes LFMD airport, France.

Daher-Socata exhibits its production range at the show every year, and will present, for this 5th edition, the TBM 850 and the G500 avionics for the TB aircraft range.

The Daher Socata exhibit will also feature a retrospective of the Morane-Saulnier and Socata productions, as the French aircraft manufacturer is celebrating the centennial of its activity in 2011.

“We look forward to participating in the 5th edition of the exhibition in Cannes, now called the Cannes AirShow, whose geographical location and audience make it a must-attend event for those involved in general aviation,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Director of the Aircraft Division at Daher-Socata. “The 2011 edition allows us to present the 2011 model of the TBM 850, which will offer new exclusive benefits. Among these is a new maintenance program that should further reduce operating costs,” he added.

The TBM 850 is the fastest single-engine production turboprop in the world, with a maximum cruise speed of 320 KTAS (593 km/h) at 26 000 ft (7 940m). An 850hp version of the TBM 700 business aircraft, known for its reliability, the TBM 850 combines the cruising speed and flying times typical of light jets with operating costs, low environmental signature, excellent range and payload of turboprop aircraft.
