a video to remember daher tbm community at eaa airventure oshkosh 2017
December 26, 2017
Daher released a new video that recaps the TBM community’s strong presence at this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Wisconsin, with the participation of 60 TBM very fast turboprop aircraft at the annual U.S. fly-in and a special salute to the company’s aviation heritage.
The four-minute video, produced for Daher by Airborne Films, captures sights and sounds of the world’s largest air show, where Daher’s two latest in-production aircraft – the TBM 910 and TBM 930 – joined the diverse line-up of airplanes during the July event. Included in the video are interviews with TBM customers who attended the fly-in, along with comments from Daher’s Chairman, Patrick Daher.
Also “starring” in the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh video is the full-scale Morane-Saulnier Type L aircraft replica, a century-old ancestor to the TBM product line. Built in France by a group of dedicated volunteers, this hand-crafted reproduction was brought to the U.S. by Daher, and the company donated it to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s EAA Aviation Museum at Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport.
“Our video reflects the passion for aviation that makes each EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in so unique, while also highlighting the special moments with TBM customers, aviation leaders and aviation enthusiasts at the 2017 event,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit, and President of SOCATA North America Inc., which is Daher’s subsidiary in the U.S. “We already are looking forward to next year, and hope to welcome another strong turnout of the TBM community.
