JETFLY and EADS Socata announced today that two new TBM 850 very fast turboprop aircraft will be introduced this year in the fractional ownership program of JETFLY.
The announcement was made during a news conference at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE 2008) in Geneva. As with all of the other aircraft in JETFLY's fleet, these glass-cockpit-equipped TBM 850s will be configured with a paint scheme and cabin interior designed by the architect, town-planner and designer Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
"With its completely integrated all-glass avionics, the new TBM 850 version will help us to optimize our operations - easing the flight management for our pilots, and providing the greatest satisfaction for our customers," stated Jean-Marc Sassetti, Managing Partner and Chief Operating Officer of JETFLY. "Our clients will enjoy the TBM 850's comfort improvements - especially the cabin air conditioning system and cabin outfitting. In the current context of increasingly expensive oil, we think the TBM 850 in our fractional ownership program is a true asset to attract new business."
"We are pleased to see JETFLY increasing its TBM aircraft fleet, which will grow this year with the introduction of our Garmin G1000-equipped TBM 850 model 2008," commented Jean-Michel Léonard, EADS Socata's Chairman and CEO. "JETFLY's customer base of leading companies is extremely demanding, and passengers will appreciate the improvements incorporated in this latest TBM 850 version. We definitely believe the fractional ownership market in Europe is growing, and that the TBM is the right aircraft for the market's needs."
