Now version 2.0.

The Socata TBM 850 is an aircraft that many people might not have a whole lot of experience in, but for some European crowds it’s a very popular aircraft. It was created on French soil and was first used in 1988, and its various formats have seen various hundreds created.

The TBM 850, though, is the most popular model of the lot and has been created 338 times, making up just under half of the full count for both the 700 and 900 models, respectively.

For that reason alone, the TBM 850 is well-respected among French circles and has impressed since it made its debut in 2008. The aircraft has really helped to establish Socata on the map and has helped them bring back a very popular back from the late 80s and early 90s. This has revived an interest in the Socata brand for many people, and comes with the awesome Garmin G1000 integrated flight deck that allows for effective and easy control of the aircraft.

The 850 manages to improve on various aspects of the original, making the aircraft faster with a higher cruise and climb power as well as ensuring that it changes its engines to a more reliable, effective Pratt & Whitney PTA6A-66D turboprop engine due to its more rugged power and ferocious power.

The aircraft itself, though, has been well received since it debuted and eventually led to the 2014 creation of the TBM 900, which is already impressing on most global aviation marketplaces.

If your looking for a great single engined turboprop to add to your virtual hangar, the TBM 850 by Carenado is definitely a strong contender. Carenado have once again created an add-on package brimming with quality and it is available to you now as an immediate download for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Perpar3D.

With Carenado, your guaranteed an incredibly well modeled aircraft, and this one uses super high quality, HD textures (2048 x 2048). You can see every little detail in each of the five included liveries and enjoy the specular shines and reflections they offer as you take this powerful aircraft through the clouds. The dynamic shine on the propeller is particularly beautiful, and compliments the fantastic special effects on the propeller like the volumetric side view.

Inside the cockpit, you'll find a large center screen and two slightly smaller screens for both the pilot and co-pilot. Introducing new 3D knobs technology, you can highlight the various knobs on the panel to bring up an intelligent overlay, showing directions and guides for rotation. The TBM 850 comes equipped with the Carenado G1000 (Primary and Multi-function Display) with a GCU 475 Control Unit, packed with opportunities, including the ability to use the MFD to create flight plans. On top of that, a customizable panel allows you to control your environment visually, by letting you adjust window transparency, instrument reflections and static elements.

Superb flight dynamics were tested by real pilots to ensure the aircraft's characteristics match those of the real-world TBM 850. In concert with the wonderful high quality digital stereo sounds recorded from the real thing, Carenado's TBM 850 certainly is an immersive aircraft to fly.

The aesthetics of the aircraft go up even more when you add the lighting rendering system into the mix. Landing lights, taxi, strobes and beacons, all interact with the environment realistically and will even illuminate objects on the ground.

With this aircraft, you're given the choice of how you want to start the simulation, the default ready to taxi option, of course, or the Cold and Dark option. This is a much more challenging situation; with this option, everything will be switched off and the fuel tanks will be empty. Pilots may need to look at the included PDF documents for normal procedures and emergency checklists before they're ready to tackle it.
