TBMOPA AVEX Safety Seminar 2012

TBMOPA AVEX Safety Seminar 2012

Camarillo’s Runway 26 saw more TBMs land for the 2012 TBMOPA AVEX Safety Seminar than any other weekend in its history. AVEX hosted 50 TBM Owners and Pilots for a weekend of TBM related safety activities May 18-20.

Some TBMs arrived as early as Thursday to catch the bonus “PT6 Troubleshooting” Course offered by Pratt and Whitney on Friday. The TBM safety classes started at 8:00 am on Saturday morning with a fully loaded syllabus and an equally packed classroom. Terry Winson, AVEX Director of Sales, kicked off the morning with “Accident Case Studies and Threat and Error Management Techniques.” Tom Chappell of Chappell Smith and Associates Aviation Insurance followed with a thorough presentation on “What Happens When an Accident Occurs.” Partner of Kern and Wooley P.C. Aviation Civil Litigation Attorneys, Robert Kern, presented on “The Anatomy of an Aviation Lawsuit.”  Charlie Holomek, Vice President of Customer Support at DAHER-Socata, went over “Maintenance Related Safety Items.” Yves Houde, Pratt and Whitney PT6A Customer Support Manager answered the question “Why Torque, Not Temp,” and the spoke on the importance of maintaining and operating the PT6A engine to the optimal OEM recommendations. Andrew Rorke, NOAA Evaluation Liaison and trainer of Southern California Weather Briefers informed the audience on “What You Don’t Know about Nexrad Weather” and discussed in-flight hazard recognition and aviation radar interpretation.

At midday the Pilots and Speakers took a break and enjoyed a BBQ at the AVEX hangar prepared by the AVEX Maintenance Technicians. After lunch classes resumed with Dave Voelker of the FAA teaching “Single Pilot Resource Management,” including how managing knowledge skills, attitudes, communications, situational awareness and decision making play a role in safety. The safety classes wrapped up with a simulated flight scenario presented by AVEX Chief Pilot, Chris Cannon and AVEX Director of Sales, Terry Winson. The training flight included pre-flight briefings, take-off, enroute planning, decision making, failures in cruise, CAS lights, descent, landing, alternates, and TBM accident scenarios.

AVEX would like to recognize the TBM companions in attendance at the seminar, whose participation in the event demonstrated a high level of concern for TBM safety. Companion activities included mini-spa treatments at the Four Seasons, and wine tasting in Malibu with lunch and live entertainment.

The evening wrapped up at the Four Seasons where DAHER-Socata sponsored cocktail hour and AVEX provided dinner. Dinner was graced with the brilliance and charisma of one of the world’s most innovative technical thinkers as TBM Owner and Keynote Speaker, Howard Charney, discussed “What Drives the Future.”

The 2012 TBMOPA AVEX Safety Seminar is FAA WINGs accredited, thirty-eight pilots enrolled through this program to earn up to 9 WINGs credits for their participation!

AOPA Sun ‘n Fun, Lakeland Florida, March 27 – April 1, 2012- Darren Lindblad

It’s very hard to beat crowds of TBM 850 fans, barbeque, and the Thunderbirds.
I just returned from the AOPA Sun ‘n Fun Expo in Lakeland, Florida. This was an opportunity to meet with other Daher-Socata distributors from around the country, as well as some of our counterparts from France. The turnout was enormous and interest was high for the new Elite configuration, as first presented by Nicholas Chabbert, Daher-Socata’s North American President.

Reports indicate that for the (majority) of TBM 700 and 850 operators, comfortable seating for 3 or 4 passengers fits their profile. There has also been a calling for slightly more baggage space. What the Elite configuration (now available as an option) offers buyers of new TBM 850’s is the ability to turn seats 3 and 4 forward-facing. This configuration provides a feeling of community between crew and aft passengers. Then, these operators can opt to leave seats 5 and 6 behind, which offers new expansive area for cargo, accessible from the enormous aft entrance door, complete with cargo net.

The Garmin G1000’s drew equal attention from the crowd, for a 4th year running. Perhaps it’s the triple G1000 displays in series, equipped with synthetic vision and chart view, that keep them coming. I’ve had GV operators sit with me and remark that the display of information is more abundant and helpful that what they are equipped with.

Lastly, for those considering the purchase of a new TBM 850, the 5 years or 1000 hours FREE scheduled maintenance incentives were the topic of many discussions. With this in mind, many potential buyers saw their transition from high performance piston singles, or turbine twins such as the Conquest and King Air, as a logical step.

We look forward to Oshkosh this summer followed by NBAA in Orlando. AVEX enjoys the following and support of our current owners, as well the chance to meet with new interested groups, for this very fast and efficient product.
