Tailwind receives FAA approval for TBM charter

Tailwind has received approval for the TBM aircraft on its FAA 135 charter certificate.  Tailwind is one of only a few 135 commercial air carriers in the USA who offer the amazing TBM very fast turbo prop for charter.  Tailwind is confident the TBM can find a niche charter market in the crowded turbo prop market of the North East, and save customers time and money over rival’s PC12, King Air and Caravan aircraft. Please contact us today for pricing and availability.
