The EADS Socata TBM 700 is a turboprop aircraft that has been in production since 2009. It is the first new plane design for the company since 1973, and was designed by an international team of engineers. The plane’s features include a large cabin area, pressurized cockpit with room for up to four people and two crew members, and advanced avionics including autopilot and GPS navigation systems.

The TBM 700 made its maiden flight on November 16th, 2014. As of August 2015, it has received FAA certification.

The TBM 700 was designed with the idea that a pilot does not need to undergo rigorous training before being able to fly it effectively. By reducing the pilot’s workload during flight and offering assistance through onboard computers, the TBM 700 allows pilots to focus more on navigating or communicating with other planes. The plane’s computerized design also makes it easier for less experienced pilots, since it can be flown using autopilot and has an automated electric trim system that sets the plane at a 15 degree angle for takeoff.

The TBM 700 is highly customizable to each person’s needs, and can be fitted with a ballistic parachute for emergency situations. It also comes equipped with Sperry Flightmax 1200X auto-thrust propellers that make landing and takeoff more effective.
