radarA new program that opens up co-ownership opportunities for the TBM 850 has been launched by Daher-Socata. F.A.S.T.

(Fly and Share Your TBM) is ideally suited for two shareholders on a one-third/two-thirds co-ownership basis, but the program can accommodate up to three shareholders per aircraft.

A minimum 100 days of exclusive use is provided yearly on an unlimited flight-hour basis, which differs from traditional fractional programs requiring the purchase of annual flight hours that are either used or lost.

radarIn addition, Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) has been certified for the TBM 850’s all-glass cockpit and is available for all new 2009 TBM 850s. Previously delivered 2008 TBM 850s can also be equipped with SVT.

All TBM-series aircraft now come equipped with a toilet option: The TBM’s intermediate left seat can be swapped for a potty seat, which can be installed and removed within minutes. This option is priced at $9,990. Visit www.socata.com.
