    Default TBM at 300 kts at 30,000’

    TBM performs like a champ at Vo Max (330 kts) just under the service ceiling of 31,000’ in my next video. Trailer here. Full video premieres tomorrow (May 5, 2021).

    Video description: We explore the sights of the Everest massif at 30,000’ in the Daher TBM 930. Early morning departure from Kathmandu, Nepal to watch the sun rise over the Himalayan mountains. Everest mountaineering, summit routes, facts and highlights plus landscape identification of the surrounding mountains and glaciers.

    If you think the TBM 930 performance is impressive for a prop aircraft then you should look at the performance figures for the Piper Cheyenne 400LS, over 400mph top speed and cruises at 41,000ft, It can also climb directly to FL 410 at MTOW.

    So true! I had forgotten about the 400LS! My favourite plane in FSX!
    Here is the full length video. Lots of editing to make it cinematic!
