DAHER APPOINTS SIMAVIA AS ITS TBM AIRCRAFT SALES REPRESENTATIVE FOR RUSSIA

Daher announced the selection of Simavia as its TBM Aircraft Sales Representative for Russia. “We are pleased to be teaming with Simavia – a dynamic, dedicated and high-quality supporter of Russian aviation – in the promotion of our TBM very fast aircraft family in Russia,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. “This partnership comes at a time when the need for on-demand transportation in the world’s largest country continues to develop – especially from remote community airports, where operators will benefit from the TBM’s speed, economical operating costs, and the ability to serve smaller runways.”

Simavia is a growing aviation company that develops general aviation and business aviation services in Russia, operating from its Krasnodar headquarters (in the Kuban region near the Black Sea) and a base at St. Petersburg. It has four main activities: aircraft sales, maintenance services, aviation training and VIP charter.

The company also is well known in Russia as organizer of the Kuban Airshow – one of the largest such annual aviation events in Russia – at which the TBM 930 aircraft version made its Russian debut earlier this year.

Simavia CEO Simon Mnoyan added that his company’s designation as TBM Aircraft Sales Representative brings a high-end aircraft family to its large range of services.

“In helping develop Russian general aviation and business aviation, our strategy is to cover all aspects of such operations,” he stated. “We spare no effort in promoting the culture of personal aircraft within Russia, and the TBM is fully aligned with this strategy.”
