In the USA

In the Americas, all initial TBM flight training is provided through DAHER’s training partner, SIMCOM International. This company utilizes two Level 5 Flight Training Devices (FTD) based on real TBM cockpits, which are either EFIS/GNS 530- or G1000-equipped. SIMCOM’s location on the U.S. south Atlantic coast (Orlando, Florida.) centrally positions the simulator for TBM operators throughout North America, as well as for customers in Latin and Central America, and near our own Service Center located in the north of Miami.

Simcom ( also provides factory approved maintenance training for the TBM family.

The G1000 TBM flight training device (FTD) has a high-resolution visual system and is configured with the TBM Garmin G1000 integrated avionics suite.

The TBM G1000 FTD’s visual system uses a Redifun RASTER XT image generator with a 172-deg.-wide field of view. This advanced 60-Hz visual system offers day/dawn/ dusk/night or continuous time of day operation.

TBM 900 Initial training consists of the following:

  • Ground school training, which includes TBM systems knowledge tests;
  • FTD training;
  • In-aircraft training;
  • Flight review to Pilot Practical Test Standards and an Instrument Proficiency Check.

Training in Europe

All training requests outside the Americas are handled by the Authorized Training Organisation called Airways Formation, based at Agen Airport (LFBA), France. Airways Formation provides training in the aircraft – either the customer’s aircraft or a rented one.

Airways Formation is approved by EASA to award the TBM SET (Single Engined Turboprop) Class rating.

Whatever the license origin or skill level of the pilot is, the training will be performed following the approved syllabus (sent upon request by Airways Formation).

Government crew training

A custom-made proposition will be proposed to meets the specific client requirements.
