Europe Approves Single-Engine Turbine Commercial Air Transport Operations

Daher Welcomes Move By The EC

During a committee meeting last month, the European Commission voted for an amendment to regulations that should lead to authorization of commercial trips with single-engine turbine aircraft within six months. The remaining technical steps include a formal scrutiny period by the European Parliament and European Council to ensure the change in regulations is legally compliant.

“The committee’s positive vote reflects the well-established safety record of single-engine turbine aircraft, and enables continental Europe to join other regions of the world – including the U.S. – where commercial air transport operations have been approved for some time,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit.

Chabbert noted that various versions of the TBM are increasingly deployed in charters for on-demand transportation – especially from smaller airports.

Commercial charter and corporate services are being flown by some 40 TBM family aircraft today. Operators include Little Hawk Logistics, based at central Virginia’s Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport in the United States; Wagga Air Centre in Australia’s New South Wales region; and France’s Voldirect – the first to operate a TBM in the framework of this country’s regulations enabling the use of TBM aircraft for public transport passengers in instrument flight conditions.
