Dramatic Launch Of New Hamilton Watch
Five-Seat CirrusA new option gives Cirrus SR22 owners a fifth seat by widening the backseat and featuring three seat belts. It's comfortable for two adults and a small child, or a group of three children. Other features include a three-position recline for backseat passengers and a child-restraint system similar to those in automobiles for use of child seats. Also available for the 2012 model is Perspective Global Connect, which offers satellite phone through Iridium Communications to make private or group calls through the cabin headsets and text messaging accessible through the MFD.

New Remos DealerRemos added a new dealer/service center to its North American team: Light Sport West. Greg and Brian Thomas have an 8,500-square-foot hangar at Sacramento Executive Airport utilized for service and showroom space, along with an additional 2,500 square feet that houses their administration. "We think that the performance and handling characteristics of the Remos make it an ideal candidate for anyone interested in recreational flying," said Greg. "It's very responsive, has excellent visibility, low operating and maintenance costs, and it will transform any weekend into an adventure." Visit www.lightsportwest.com.
TBM 850 DeliveriesThirty-eight of Daher-Socata's TBM 850 aircraft were delivered in 2011, bringing the total number of aircraft received by customers since being introduced in 2006 to 260. It was the fourth-best year for Daher-Socata's TBM aircraft family since 1990, whose 600th aircraft rolled out of the factory last October. "We attained our delivery goals in 2011 despite the very difficult economic environment worldwide, resulting in the TBM 850 gaining market share," said Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of Daher-Socata Airplane Division. "This achievement was due to the loyalty of our customers, our team spirit, and our TBM 850's continued value for a full range of operators." Visit www.tbm850.com.
