Aircraft Cost of Ownership Tracking & Predictions

You have decided to purchase a TBM, but do you know how much it will cost you to own and operate? FlyTBM closely monitors the resale market of TBMs to track trends in depreciation. We also maintain a database of historical parts and labor cost from our clients' previous service visits. We collect this information to help our clients better plan their TBM ownership experience.

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling

Your TBM continues to depreciate each day, and downtime can be costly! Did you know that your TBM sitting just a few extra days in service waiting on technician availability or parts to be delivered will cost you thousands of dollars in loss of use (depreciation), fixed maintenance cost, and insurance? Key to minimizing downtime is proper planning and scheduling with service and parts suppliers. FlyTBM starts the logistical process of your scheduled service visit over a month in advance to ensure everything goes smoothly with minimal downtime.

Maintenance Compliance Tracking

FlyTBM provides maintenance compliance training, including your FAA required inspections, scheduled letter check inspections, life-limited components, special inspections, FAA airworthiness directives, and service bulletins. We provide an application for you to update your meter time and cycle counts allowing updates to your maintenance tracking real-time. If you are already using a tracking program such as CAMP, no problem, we can work with them to make sure all of your documents are tracked appropriately.

Maintenance Service Center Oversight

When you drop your aircraft off at your service center, do you know all items that require compliance? The TBM not only has the FAA required inspections, the three scheduled letter check inspections, but also over 35 life-limited components, and over 70 special checks. With so much to keep up with, it's easy for something to get missed. FlyTBM gives you peace of mind that TBM experts are ensuring your plane is maintained legally, per the manufactures maintenance program, and using proper technical documentation. Our oversight of your aircraft keeps you safer, but also helps retain the maximum value of your asset.

Maintenance Invoice Reviews

When you receive your TBM service invoice, do you know if you are being overcharged? We do! We aren’t just professional pilots, but certified mechanics as well, so we know the maintenance, so we know the maintenance side of this business. We know the labor allowances of most TBM repairs, so we'll know if something doesn't look quite right. We have saved our clients tens of thousands of dollars over the years catching invoicing mistakes in the review process we perform after service on all of our managed aircraft.

Aircraft Subscription Services Management

Imagine you are flying along on a challenging weather day and all of a sudden your XM weather goes out! Oops, your credit card provider changed your card number and your payment failed, causing your service to be shut off at the worst possible time. FlyTBM manages all of your required subscriptions for your aircraft, ensuring all of your services are always working.

Technical Advise

Most TBM pilots, especially when they are new to the plane, will have many questions come up from experiences they encounter inflight. The FlyTBM staff is here to answer your operation and TBM systems technical questions. We will save you hours digging through manuals trying to find answers. Quick access to the knowledge of the pros will make you a safer pilot.

RVSM Responsible Person

RVSM is where most TBM pilots don't understand their responsibilities. Did you know that most TBM RVSM operations manuals require you to complete recurrent RVSM training every two years? Did you know that as the RVSM responsible person, you are required to audit every repair station that will work on your pitot/static system before the work begins and then every year after that? Did you know that you are required to keep a record of the repair station technicians current training and a record of their equipment calibration? Let us worry about all this, and you focus on flying your plane. FlyTBM will handle applying for your RVSM approval, maintain your operations manual, act as the RVSM responsible person, and we'll send you reminders for when you need to complete recurrent training.

Flight Record Software Tool for Tax Records

Keeping flight records for your end of year taxes can be a pain, but it doesn't have to be. FlyTBM has developed an application allowing you to submit your leg flight times, flight category, and flight category of each person on board. At your request, we will provide you a spreadsheet for your accountant’s aid to insure you get your best business deduction for use of your aircraft.

Contract Fuel Setup

Are you paying retail prices on jet fuel? If you are, you are missing out on massive saving by not using the right contract fuel card. FlyTBM will evaluate the airports you visit most and help you set up the best fuel cards for maximum fuel cost savings.

Aircraft Insurance Assistance

Are you using a generic broker to find you insurance for your TBM? It could be a costly mistake! Insurance rates are going up, and underwriters that don't completely understand your pilot experience, training, and flight operation are going to quote high. FlyTBM works with insurance agents that understand the TBM and its pilots to find you the most attractive rates. Working with a professional management/mentor company helps underwriters view your operation as less risky and typically offer more attractive pricing. Let us help present you most attractively to the insurance companies to get you the best prices on your TBM.

Avionics Subscriptions Updates

You own a TBM to save time, but little task such as updating your avionics subscriptions can be very time-consuming. A new charts database is released every 14 days, and much time can be wasted every year just maintaining subscriptions. Let us help! We will make sure your TBM avionics are kept up to date, and your plane is ready to fly the moment you are prepared to go.

Aircraft Cleaning

TBMs get dirty quickly with the exhaust stacks flowing down the sides of the aircraft. FlyTBM will keep your TBM looking its best by cleaning your plane inside and out. Included with your direct management subscription are two regular cleanings per month and one extensive detail per year.

Aircraft Reposition Services

Much valuable time is wasted moving your aircraft back-and-forth from the service center for scheduled inspections and unscheduled repairs. FlyTBM will provide a pro-pilot to move your aircraft back-and-forth from your home base to the service center. Spend your time wisely and step away from the hassle of flying your plane from service visits and spend more time operating your aircraft for business and pleasure.

TBM Mentorship

Learn from the Pros, Become a Pro

Insurance Required Time in Type Instruction

Most insurance underwriters require 25-50 hours in your TBM with an instructor/mentor pilot before they'll allow you to fly single pilot. This time with your mentor is your opportunity to simulate real-life scenarios in your TBM learn lots of new tips and tricks of how to operate your aircraft safer and more effectively. Don't waste these 25-50 hours just burning holes in the sky to satisfy the insurance requirement, Instead, schedule a FlyTBM mentor pilot to accompany you on trips you would already be taking and allow us to teach you about operating in various environments.

Pilot Proficiency Evaluations

All pilots have blind spots in our skills, and the more we have the opportunity to fly with other pilots, the more our deficiencies are exposed, and our skills can be sharpened! FlyTBM offers pilot proficiency evaluations to provide you with honest feedback on strengths and weaknesses as a pilot. When we discover a deficiency, we compile training materials and a training plan to correct the issue quickly, ensuring you fly safely for yourself, your friends and family, and everyone on the ground.

Scenario-Based TBM Training

TBMs are one of the most reliable aircraft on the aviation market! The downside to the reliability is that we rarely get the chance to practice abnormal procedures when a flight does not go as planned. Over the years operating TBMs, we have accumulated an arsenal of unusual events to help us build some of the best scenario-based training plans to help you become a better pilot. Schedule us for a training day; we'd love the opportunity to help you fly more like a pro.

Safety Pilot

Have you ever taken a trip that you would have felt more comfortable flying had another pilot accompanied who was familiar with the trip? Flying with one of our safety pilots allows you to stretch your abilities and build your confidence with the peace of mind knowing you have a pro on board.

Garmin Flight Deck Training

The most significant change to general aviation aircraft over the past few decades has been the evolution of the Garmin flight decks making their way into most new aircraft. The G1000NXi and G3000 flight decks are powerful systems simplifying much of your workload in flight. However, for this technology to be effective, you must know how to use it! There is much to learn with many hidden features, so let one of our experienced instructors show you how to use this incredible technology to its full capabilities.

ForeFlight EFB Training

Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) have dramatically changed the way we plan our flights and allows us to plan quickly and have a wealth of information at our fingertips. ForeFlight is the leader of EFB and by far the most capable and user-friendly. However, there is a lot to learn to use the ForeFlight software to its full potential. FlyTBM offers Foreflight EFB training to walk you through using ForeFlight quickly planning and flying your TBM flights.

Flight Planning Review

Have you ever wondered, "am I filing the right route for this flight?" "Am I unaware of the hazards of this flight?" "Should I use another airport?" FlyTBM provides a flight plan review service to help you make decisions that will keep you safe and save you money. Small, decisions such as where to make your fuel stops can add much expense over time. However, cheaper is not always the best option. What if the more economical airport closes before your arrival time? What if the fuel truck is out of service? There are many variables to think about for each unfamiliar flight, and FlyTBM can help to analyze your best options.

International Flight Assistance

International flights can be the trickiest! Each country has its own set of rules that differ from the ICAO standard, As well as its entry and customs rules. Your first flight to a new country can be intimidating because you don't know what to expect. FlyTBM pilots have been to a lot of international destinations and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge of local rules and procedures. Even for countries we have not yet visited, we know where to find the information you will need and can help you make an uneventful flight to your next exciting destination!
