History and General Description

The Socata TBM 700B is successor to original model, the TBM 700A. The TBM 700B was produced from 1999 to 2002 and the fleet is currently made up of just under 100 aircraft.

Like the original model, the TBM 700B is powered by the popular Pratt & Whitney PT6A engine. The B model matches the A model’s performance and there is nearly a 100 pound difference in payload capacity. In addition to the difference in payload, the TBM 700B also incorporates a larger entry door adding to the ease of passenger and baggage loading.
