Socata upgraded the 850 type to the newer more expensive TBM 900 with deliveries in 2014. The price range of a Socata or Daher TBM 900 is $2,755,000 – $3,055,000. It was built from 2014 – 2016. Socata upgraded to the newer and more expensive TBM 910 type in 2017. The price range for a TBM 900 largely depends on what year it was built and any accident history on the airframe. If it’s being listed for sale, a pre-buy inspection will determine if there’s airframe or engine repairs that are needed. Corrosion is also a hot topic in pre-buy inspections.
There were 114 TBM 900 built by Socata and 110 still in operation, as of 2023.
For insurance, the TBM 900s are mainly flown as Pleasure & Business by owner pilots.
The TBM 900 has the Garmin G1000 NXi avionics and a PT6 engine, two of the most reliable products in General Aviation.
Insurance rates for the TBM 900 start around 1% of the hull value for well qualified pilots and can be as high as 2% for less experienced pilots transitioning from a piston such as a Cirrus SR22.
