Congratulations Ron Smith on your new Piper Meridian!

Monday, December 9th, 2013

Texas Piper would like to congratulate Ron Smith on the delivery of his new Piper Meridian. Just 12 months ago Mr. Smith bought a new Piper Mirage. The Mirage was a perfect step for Ron who was coming out of a turbo-182. But after 12 months and 250 hours on the Mirage, Ron was ready for more speed and climb performance. The Piper Meridian was the next logical step and fit perfectly into Mr. Smith’s target mission and the strong resale trade-in value of the Mirage helped make the step simple. Thank you Ron for being a repeat Texas Piper Customer!

Congratulations Robert Nipper on your new Piper Mirage!

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Texas Piper would like to congratulate Robert Nipper on the purchase of his new Piper Mirage. Robert most recently flew a G1000 182 but decided that the pressurized cabin, size and speed of the Mirage would be a better fit for his missions in Texas and the southwest. The G1000 panel and simplicity of the Mirage systems make it a great next step up for a 182 owner. Congratulations Robert!

Cutter Piper Sales congratulates Mark Payne on the purchase of his new Piper Matrix. Mark previously owned a G1000 equipped C182.

Congratulations to Kevin and Laurel Wilkerson!

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Congratulations to Kevin and Laurel Wilkerson on the purchase of 2010 Meridian N948C. The Wilkerson’s have owned a beautiful F33 Bonanza for 11 years and decided it was time to upgrade to turbine, pressurized performance. Thank you Kevin and Laurel, enjoy your Meridian!

Congratulations to Tim Hopper!

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Congratulations to Tim Hopper, owner of a new Piper Mirage. Tim’s first aircraft was a Mooney M20J, but he needed something pressurized to take him on business to New York and on family trips to Colorado. The Piper Mirage fit the mission perfectly and with bonus depreciation the decision to purchase new made the decision easy. Congratulations Tim and happy flying!

Piper Introduces 3 Display Garmin G1000 in Seneca V Models

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

AVALON AIRPORT, GEELONG, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, Feb. 26, 2013 – Piper Aircraft Inc. is one of the first manufacturers to adopt the most recent G1000 software supporting a three display avionics suite as standard equipment in new Twin-Class Piper Seneca V aircraft models available in 2013. The announcement was made here today at Airshow 2013, the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition held Feb. 24-26.

Garmin’s G1000 is a seamlessly integrated all-glass avionics suite that makes flight information easier to scan and process. The G1000′s design brings new levels of situational awareness, simplicity and safety to the cockpit. Piper Director of Marketing and Communications Jackie Carlon said, “The Garmin G1000 avionics suite is now on all of our M-Class and Twin-Class aircraft. The G1000 with three-displays standard in the Seneca V now gives pilots abundant flight-critical data that provides exceptional situational awareness and that will contribute to safer flying.”

The latest Garmin G1000 software on the Seneca V includes the following: Baro – VNAV approach (used for LNAV/VNAV vertical guidance whenever SBAS is not available or not approved), Vertical Profile View, User-defined holding patterns (provides the ability for the pilot to manually specify holding patterns, and the GSR 56 – Iridium Transceiver.

Worldwide Connectivity
The G1000 can now display worldwide weather that informs pilots of METARs, TAFs and winds aloft around the globe, with an optional GSR 56 transceiver. Radar and satellite imagery are also available through this service for the United States, Southern Canada, Western Europe and Australia. In addition, the G1000 can support voice and data services that let the pilot make worldwide phone calls, send text messages and send email via SMS from the airplane’s cockpit using the GTN as the dialing and messaging interface.

The G1000 flight deck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays. It replaces the dual Garmin G600 suite currently on Seneca V’s. Garmin’s reliable GRS77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) provides accurate, digital output and referencing of aircraft position, rate, vector and acceleration data.

DAHER-SOCATA unveils its Model Year 2013 TBM 850 Elite in the U.S. market

Monday, February 25th, 2013

A host of benefits are incorporated in this latest version of the company’s very fast turboprop business aircraft

Pembroke Pines, Florida, February 25, 2013 – DAHER-SOCATA’s Model Year 2013 version of its TBM 850 Elite was unveiled last friday at Florida’s Boca Raton Airport for customers in the United States – which remains one of the primary markets for this very fast turboprop business aircraft.

Compared to last year’s model, a cockpit enhancement is the integration of L-3 Avionics’ Trilogy™ ESI-2000 Electronic Standby Instrument (ESI), which replaces the previous electro-mechanical instrument version. As the first solid-state integrated standby system specifically created for general aviation, the advanced solid-state Trilogy™ ESI-2000 has an internal battery and easy-to-read 4 X 3-inch active matrix liquid crystal display. “Based on the tremendous customer interest in the TBM 850 Elite – which debuted last year – we are continuing its production in 2013,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of DAHER-SOCATA’s Airplane Division and President of SOCATA North America. “For this year, we have made further improvements inside and out, along with enhancements to the aircraft’s comprehensive maintenance program.” The Model Year 2013 TBM 850′s Elite offering of interior colors has been extended with the choice of Moccha dark brown leather, as well as a medium grey, referred to as River Stone. In addition, the aircraft’s seat backs are now perforated to improve comfort on hot days.

SGp DAHER-SOCATA

DAHER-SOCATA also offers a special package for its Model Year 2013 that features a host of benefits such as a deluxe leather interior with a storage cabinet, wooden or carbon-fiber fittings and 14-Volt DC power plugs. This includes also DAHER-SOCATA’s Highly Extended Exclusive Maintenance Program, which lowers scheduled maintenance costs for five years or 1,000 hours. In 2013, this program is completed by the CAMP maintenance tracking system, which enables the owner to easily follow its maintenance.

Additional safety options in this year’s Elite package are a GPS-linked emergency locator transmitter, and a pulsed light system that alternately flashes the landing, taxi and recognition lights 45 times-per-minute to increase the aircraft’s visibility. DAHER-SOCATA developed the TBM 850 Elite to offer unique capability in tailoring the passenger cabin in meeting operators’ needs. Its middle seats can be oriented in a forward-facing position, while the rear seats are removable. In approximately 30 minutes, the TBM 850 can be reconfigured in a four-seat cabin, increasing the luggage volume capacity by three and doubling the maximum luggage weight. Primary technical changes in the TBM 850 Elite are the new intermediate seats, whose base is narrower; and a forward shift in positioning of the passenger oxygen system, which enables passengers to be assisted in both the cabin’s six- and fourseat configurations.

Popular options in this package include a full avionics suite with Garmin’s Synthetic Vision System dynamic terrain imaging, Chartview electronic chart database, and the GSR 56 Iridium satellite datalink transceiver for global connectivity – providing on-demand weather information, text/voice communications and near real-time position tracking.

DAHER-SOCATA’s TBM 850 is the world’s fastest single turboprop aircraft, with a maximum cruising speed of 320 KTAS at Flight Level 260 (in ISA conditions). It combines cruising speed and trip times of a light jet with the economic direct operating costs, range and moderate environmental signature of a turboprop engine. The maximum range and useful load – which are enhanced on the current version – as well as the ability to land at small airports are some of its customers’ favorite features.

DAHER-SOCATA’s TBM 850 Elite cruises at the top of the market

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Washington, D.C. – DAHER-SOCATA announced on February 12, 2012, that 38 TBM 850s were delivered in 2012 – representing the fourth best year for the company’s TBM aircraft family since 1990, and underscoring the very fast turboprop’s continued value in an evolving global market.

The 2012 deliveries bring to 622 units the total number of aircraft received by customers, of which 298 are TBM 850 – the latest version of DAHERSOCATA’s very fast turboprop aircraft family.

According to General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) year-end shipment and billings figures – which were released today in Washington, D.C. – the 38 TBM 850 deliveries last year represented an 18 percent share
of its market segment. This reflects an increased market share when compared to the competitors.

The majority of TBM 850s purchased in 2012 were acquired by U.S. customers (66 percent). Canada ranked second, with 13 percent, followed by Brazil and Germany’s eight percent of the 2012 sales. One sale was achieved in the U.K. last year, where the market is showing signs of recovery, while Thailand joined the club of TBM countries with a contract for its first TBM 850 in June.

“The TBM 850 sales success confirms our very fast turboprop’s position as the keystone of DAHER-SOCATA’s strategy,” explained Stephane Mayer, Chairman and CEO of DAHER-SOCATA – the aerospace and defense activity of the DAHER Group. “This also supports our Group’s current strategy to invest in research and development to support our products and our long-term growth.”

Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of DAHER-SOCATA’s Airplane Division, said the availability of its TBM 850 Elite version – which was certified in July – boosted sales during the second half of 2012. “Efficiency and value remain the competitive advantages of turboprop aircraft, as demonstrated by the TBM 850’s continued sales successes,” Chabbert added. “This explains the resilience of turboprop aircraft at a time when very light jets are competing in the marketplace.”

Building on its commercial momentum, DAHER-SOCATA is offering the Model Year 2013 TBM 850 “Elite” with a host of benefits, including the highly extended Exclusive Maintenance Program – which lowers scheduled maintenance costs for five years or 1,000 hours – and the GSR 56 Iridium based satellite telephone system.

DAHER-SOCATA’s TBM 850 is the world’s fastest single turboprop aircraft, with a maximum cruising speed of 320 KTAS at Flight Level 260 (in ISA conditions). It combines cruising speed and trip times of a light jet with the
economic direct operating costs, range and moderate environmental signature of a turboprop engine. The maximum range and useful load – which are enhanced on the current version – and the ability to land at small airports are some of its customers’ favorite features.

The worldwide TBM fleet – composed of the TBM 850 and its predecessor TBM 700 version – has surpassed the combined 1 million flight hour milestone. With more than 620 of these very fast turboprop business aircraft
produced to date, the overall fleet usage now averages in excess of 120,000 flight hours annually.

DAHER-SOCATA’s TBM very fast turboprop aircraft fleet surpassed the 1 million flight hour milestone

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Tarbes, France – DAHER-SOCATA announced on February 7, 2013, that the worldwide TBM 700 and TBM 850 fleet has surpassed the milestone of 1 million flight hours.

With more than 620 TBM very fast turboprop business aircraft produced to date, the overall fleet usage now averages in excess of 120,000 flight hours annually.

“Surpassing this milestone confirms the TBM 850 as the keystone of DAHER-SOCATA’s strategy,” said Stephane Mayer, Chairman and CEO of DAHER-SOCATA, the aerospace and defense activity of the DAHER Group. “This highlights the synergy between manufacturing and services that offers our customers high dispatch reliability, while also underscoring our excellent partnership with Pratt & Whitney Canada – which manufactures the TBM’s PT6A engine. With the first million flight hours now a reality, I look forward to the next million-hour achievement.”

Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the DAHER-SOCATA Airplane Division, added the 1 million flight hour achievement demonstrates that a manufacturer’s aircraft product line has come of age. “The extensive experience accumulated during 20 years of operations has proven the TBM’s airframe design and validated its reliability,” he explained. “Reaching this flight-hour achievement also highlights the efficiency of our service network, which can maintain TBM aircraft from the busiest airports in the U.S. to the Australian Outback.”

Chabbert said the TBM in-service experience provided the confidence for DAHER-SOCATA to offer extended warranties and its Exclusive Maintenance Program – which lowers scheduled maintenance costs for five years or 1,000 hours. “The tremendous track record accumulated by TBM customers and operators helped us improve the product, and we offer one of the most reliable airplanes in its category today,” he added.

daher-plaqueTo mark the 1 million flight hour milestone, Pratt & Whitney Canada presented DAHER-SOCATA CEO Stéphane Mayer with a commemorative plaque.

DAHER-SOCATA’s TBM 850 is the world’s fastest single turboprop aircraft, with a maximum cruising speed of 320 KTAS at Flight Level 260 (in ISA conditions).

As an 850-shp. version of DAHER-SOCATA’s TBM 700, the TBM 850 combines cruise speeds and trip times of a light jet with the economical direct operating costs, range and eco-friendly environmental signature of a turboprop-powered aircraft. The TBM 850’s maximum range and useful load – which are enhanced on the current version – and the ability to land at small airports are some of its customers’ favorite features.

Cutter Aviation 85th Anniversary Kickoff at NBAA Convention in Orlando

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

PHOENIX, AZ – As Mr. William P. Cutter began the first day of business for Cutter Flying Service in January of 1928, the landscape of General and Business Aviation at the time was as uncharted and rugged as the landscape surrounding his airport in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The concept of an “aviation business” had only been officially defined by the government two years earlier with the passage of the Air Commerce Act of 1926, so the idea of offering services to such a fledgling industry was considered to be a substantial risk for anyone embarking on such a venture.  Undeterred, William P. Cutter saw a need for aviation in the Southwest to improve transportation infrastructure, help industries grow in the region, and provide critical air service to isolated communities in need of services and supplies.  Eighty-five years ago, William P. Cutter believed in General and Business Aviation and the principles behind his goals for Cutter Flying Service remain as true today for the industry as he saw them back in 1928.  The legacy of William P. Cutter continues today as Cutter Aviation, the oldest continually family-owned and family-operated aviation services network in the United States, celebrates the kickoff of its 85th Anniversary Celebration year at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Annual Meeting & Convention in Orlando, FL from October 30 to November 1, 2012.

Eighty-five years of continual growth and business success is a remarkable achievement for any company and Cutter Aviation is proud to be celebrating such a monumental milestone in 2012 and 2013.  Not only surviving, but thriving through such times as the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War and Vietnam War, and several economic recessions and energy droughts, Cutter Aviation is a symbol in General Aviation of tenacity, determination, and commitment to the core promises of delivering a wide range of quality products and services at a better value to loyal customers for generations.  While other businesses may compromise quality for profits or change hands and shareholders over their lifetime, Cutter Aviation remains as the consistent and dependable name that owners, pilots, and crews rely on for the best service in the Southwestern United States – line services, maintenance, avionics, aircraft sales, aircraft charter and management.

Cutter Aviation will be kicking off their 85th Anniversary Celebration year at the NBAA Convention from the Phillips 66 Aviation Booth #4560 throughout the event. The Cutter Aviation team will be giving away cans of our World-renowned Cutter Aviation Hatch Chiles from New Mexico at our two kiosks in the Phillips 66 booth.

Additionally, on Tuesday, October 30th at 2:00pm (ET), Phillips 66 and Cutter Aviation will be having cake to celebrate the 85th Anniversary of each company.  Phillips 66 Aviation is concluding their 85th Anniversary year in 2012 at the NBAA Convention while Cutter Aviation begins our 85th Anniversary year at the event!  Cutter Aviation is also the oldest Phillips 66 Aviation Fuels dealer in their network of over 870 fixed base operators (FBO) in the nation, with Cutter Aviation (formerly Cutter Flying Service) in Albuquerque, NM becoming a dealer in 1938 and remaining so for 75 years.
