The TBM Owners and Pilots Association exists for owners and operators of the Socata TBM aircraft. The objective of the organization is to promote safety and provide an opportunity to maximize the pleasure and utility of the ownership experience.
These objectives are pursued through a variety of methods including an annual convention, regional gatherings, a comprehensive website to disseminate information and encourage interchange among owners, involving manufacturers and field service organizations, offering merchandise, special investigations and projects, etc.
TBMOPA is not a sales organization for the manufacturer or a proponent of any specific manufacturer, field sales or service organization. In fact, TBMOPA may serve as representative of the owner base to encourage action and response by manufacturers, field service organizations, regulatory organizations, etc.
The safety and market value of the TBM fleet is of paramount interest to TBMOPA. In this regard, the sale of new aircraft and the proper maintenance and retrofit of existing aircraft in the fleet is recognized as important. TBMOPA will encourage actions which maximize the value and utility of the TBM fleet.
TBMOPA encourages a partnership of communication and information exchange with Daher-Socata and with Socata Sales and Service Centers as well as other involved businesses and organizations. However, TBMOPA functions as an independent organization focused on the best interests of the owner and operator base.
