Daher has delivered a new TBM 900 to VIP Empresarial, a business charter operator based at Del Norte International Airport in Monterrey, Mexico. It is the first Mexican-registered TBM turboprop. The aircraft was sold by Jet Mach, the TBM distributor in Mexico.
While TBM 700s and TBM 850s have been delivered to Mexican private operators in the past, they have all been registered in the USA.
“We expect this year to have more deliveries in the region, especially in Brazil, through our distributor Algar Aviation which has ordered six TBM 900s and already delivered two to final customers, and in Mexico with the support of JetMach,” said Nicolas Chabbert, president of Socata North America, Daher’s US subsidiary, and senior vice president of Daher’s Airplane business unit.
