The TBM940 is a member of the highly successful six-passenger high performance, single-engine turboprop TBM aircraft family manufactured by France-based Daher Company.

The TBM designation carries the Franco-American heritage of this aircraft family, the “TB” designation stand for Tarbes, the Aerospatiale SOCATA French Hometown, and the “M” for Texas, US-based Mooney Aviation. Launched in 1987 as a Joint Venture project between SOCATA and Mooney, the original TBM700 aircraft design was based on the pressurized fuselage, Mooney 301 prototype aircraft. Following the first flight on July 14, 1988, the TBM700 entered service in 1990 and quickly become a great success. In 1991 Mooney left the Joint Venture leaving SOCATA as the sole owner of the program.

In 2014 Airbus parent company EADS completed the sell of all it’s SOCATA shares to French industrial conglomerate Daher.
