Tarbes, France – Daher today unveiled technical details for its TBM 940 very fast turboprop aircraft in the Model Year 2020 version, which is equipped with HomeSafe™ – an emergency system that automatically brings the airplane to a runway touchdown if the pilot becomes incapacitated.

The system is activated manually by an easily recognizable orange button atop the cockpit instrument panel. Its software integrates weather and terrain information to select the best airport for landing, taking into account fuel range and runway length.

HomeSafe™ is based on Garmin’s Emergency Autoland system – available as a part of the G3000 integrated flight deck – and has been under development for the TBM since 2017 by the Avionics Engineering Office at Daher’s Aircraft Division. This work included Big Data analyses and the testing of 20 HomeSafe™ system versions.
