Daher has announced the release of a new iPad
application that allows future TBM 900 and TBM 930 owners to customize the paint
scheme of their very fast turboprop aircraft, while also enabling TBM fans to
visualize the airplane of their dreams.
This free-of-charge application displays a
full 3D view of the TBM that enables the aircraft to be seen from all angles.
For each area defined by one of Daher’s two factory standard paint schemes, the
user will be able to select a preferred color – assisted by a palette containing
105 different shades.
A choice of aircraft registration styles also
is offered, as well as the positioning of TBM 900/TBM 930 logos. After
finalizing the configuration, the results are saved and made available as a PDF
file or JPG image.
"Style definitely matters for TBM owners, and
the personalization phase is very important during a new aircraft acquisition,”
said Nicolas Chabbert,
Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “By creating this
configurator tool, we are providing a very realistic opportunity to visualize
how the future airplane will look, enabling customers to define the external
styling as early as possible.”
