Airborne 12.15.23: 100th TBM 960, Ground-Effect Seaglider, Poseidon Removed

Also: Universal Avionics STC, Airspeeder 2023, Firefighting A400M, Aerobility Chief CFI Mike Owen

Daher's 100th TBM 960 has been delivered to a customer, showing just how popular the newest iteration of the personal turboprop has been since its introduction. 

The buyer is a "Californian businessman who is stepping up from a piston-engine airplane to this top-of-the-line member of the high-speed, turboprop-powered TBM aircraft family," according to a Daher release. Not much news on the Regent front since last October, when they got a $4.75 million deal with the US Marine Corps for a Seaglider demonstration - but the company remains hard at work for a commercial service entry in 2025. The company gained a little blurb in mainstream press thanks to recent test flights in quarter-scale, proving out their design ahead of a full-size demonstrator in 2024. A $1.5 million salvage endeavor finally removed the P-8 Poseidon that sat in Hawaii's Kaneohe bay for weeks, allowing investigators to evaluate the extent of natural damage caused by the runway overshoot. The Navy had previously purged all the fuel from the Poseidon, hoping to prevent any hazardous contamination of the delicate ecology of the bay. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
