Daher Unveils New Kodiak 900, TBM 960 For 1st Time At NBAA

Latest and Greatest from Business, Cargo Turboprop Manufacturer Surprises at NBAA-BACE

Daher had not one, but two surprises in store for attendees this year with two new models of their venerable high-wing Kodiak and low-wing TBM aircraft. 

Since their purchase of the Kodiak design, Daher has lavished no shortage of attention on the model, constantly sharpening it as a contender for the high-wing, 10-seat turboprop niche. Improvements in power and performance ease use on uneven and ultra-short runways while enhancing safety.

The TBM series got its share of love, too, morphing from the best-selling iteration of the aircraft, the TBM 940, into the new TBM 960.

“This year’s NBAA-BACE enables us to bring together our top-of-the-line Kodiak and TBM versions, underscoring the improvements that we have incorporated for efficiency, operational safety and comfort,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division. “The NBAA’s large industry gathering provides the opportunity to meet professionals who are seeking increasingly sustainable solutions for commercial and corporate operations, as well as for the sector of special
