TBM 960 benefits from the PT6E-66XT advanced powerplant and the five-blade Hartzell Raptor composite propeller. With simplified single-lever operation, the PT6E-66XT turboprop engine enables easy startup, followed by precise predictable control and full digital envelope protection – reducing pilot workload while protecting the engine’s life. The lightweight Raptor five-blade composite propeller from Hartzell is designed to reduce overall weight and improve the TBM 960’s takeoff distance, climb, and cruise speeds.
