What's not to like about flying 320 knots at FL280? Not much that we can think of. That's exactly the performance Socata's TBM 850 will deliver. The 850 has become one of the most popular turbine personal transportation airplanes for several reasons. Chief among them are that its speed is closer to jet performance than prop numbers and its operational cost with a single engine rather than two is relatively low, given its capability. In this video, AVweb's Paul Bertorelli took a flight trial with Socata's Nicolas Chabbert and demo pilot Wayman Luy. His normally well-coifed salt-and-pepper hair can be seen smoldering slightly.
