Daher Reports Healthy Business

Resurgent Sales of Kodiak, TBM Aircraft making Record Numbers

While still a relatively niche operation compared to other movers and shakers in the light turboprop market, Daher reports promising increases in sales since 2021. 

Last year, deliveries for the TBM series topped 51 planes of TBM 940 and 910 versions, as well as a fleet order for 4 940s bound for the French government-run flight test group. The majority of the metal moved was bound once again for North America, which accounted for 39 aircraft in total, with a smattering of European states rounding out the rest of the numbers. 

Daher's acquisition of the Kodiak 100 led to the first new iteration of the aircraft in over 3 years: the Series III. The updated plane proved popular, selling 17 aircraft to a "mix of corporate/business operators, private owners and special mission customers," again primarily in North America. 

“We’re proud of these impressive results for Daher’s Aircraft Division in producing and delivering Kodiak and TBM aircraft – which are even more noteworthy considering the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the supply chain, its effects on the economy, and the downturn in international travel,” commented Didier Kayat, the Daher CEO. “The perspectives for 2022 are extremely positive, and it could be the best year ever for our aircraft manufacturing activity.” 

The waxing sales are an indication that the advancements made in the aircraft are paying off. “These solid business results underscore the attributes of our aircraft as they continue to evolve in meeting customers’ needs – especially in today’s market conditions, where quality, value, efficiency and performance are, more than ever, key deciding points,” said Nicolas Chabbert, senior VP of the company's aircraft division. “This is underscored by our introduction of the numerous enhancements on the Kodiak 100 Series III for improved flight safety, greater cabin comfort and augmented operational capabilities; as well as the HomeSafe™ emergency autoland system’s integration on the TBM 940, which is a general aviation safety game-changer for owners and operators.”
