Socata boosts production rates

The first two EADS Socata 2008, G1000-equipped TBM 850s were delivered to customers last Thursday, marking the formal entry of the upgraded single-engine turboprop into the commercial aviation market. The first 2008 TBM 850 was received by John LaBonte, the Chief Executive Officer of Big Bike Parts, a leading designer and distributor of touring motorcycle accessories.

The EADS unit is currently in talks with potential partners to begin work on an eight-or-more-seat aircraft to augment its six-seater TBM 850. Exact details of the future program are still being sorted out, including whether it will be a turboprop or jet, but Leonard expects those issues to be resolved in the coming months.
