Daher’s Contract With French Ministry For The Armed Forces Renewed

A Seven Year Extension Has Been Issued On the Operational Support Agreement

Daher reveals a seven year extension of its full operational support contract for TBM 700 very fast turboprop aircraft, operated under the French Ministry for the Armed Forces.

The fleet that exists under the contract includes 26 TBM aircraft, based in mainland France that are used by the military for air mobility and training sessions.

“The French Ministry for the Armed Forces is a demanding client that always has pushed us towards excellence, especially in challenging times,” commented Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division. “Recently our teams were mobilized to meet the needs of the French armed forces, including the Gendarmerie, in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud to continue our support in operational conditions with the new contract extension, marking its renewal for the fourth time.”

Chabbert noted that French military users benefit from Daher’s 25 years of experience in the aircraft, maintenance and logistics sectors. “Over the course of these successive contracts, we have been able to evolve by combining user experience feedback with our aircraft manufacturer expertise, thereby achieving the operational availability objectives requested by our client," he concluded.

The contract renewal is expected to average about 10,900 flight hours with the TBM fleet. A detailed look at what Daher provides includes technical and logistical support, obsolescence management and management of technical facts and documentation. Additionally, they cover maintenance of airframes, propellers, engines, parts and installed equipment and carrying out scheduled inspections.
