Welcome to the Socata TB Users Group!

This site is dedicated to providing information and support on Socata's TB range of general aviation aircraft.

The primary mission of the Group is to provide members with information and assistance that will help keep Socata-built airplanes flying - safely and affordably, and to provide a forum for Socata pilots to discuss issues that effect them.

Here you will find the latest information on the TB fleet, user information and stories and pictures of users with their aircraft as well as a gateway to the "members only" message board where you can exchange tips and information with other TB Users.

Aviation News


New school, familiar faces

Mojave Airport in California has long been an epicenter of unusual attitudes and flight envelopes pushed. Now, it is more so.

Simulation from scratch

Flight instructor Xylon Saltzman wasn't satisfied with what the general aviation simulation market had to offer, so he created his own.

Pilot to overfly both poles in earth-rounding bid

A retired airline pilot flying a modified Lancair IV single-engine airplane has launched a new bid to fly around the world and over both poles.

Tower-marking rules approved in Oklahoma

Oklahoma's new rules will require the marking, painting, and flagging of towers that are at least 50 feet high.

A look back at the top stories of 2014

A tall (but true) tale of a rare aircraft find in Texas, progress on third class medical reform, amazing aviation videos, pilot saves, new aircraft from Mooney, and one pilot's surprise of a lifetime topped the most-read stories of 2014.


Private Aircraft Still Blocked From Cuba

Those dreaming of flying to Cuba in their own aircraft will have to wait for now. Even though the U.S. has liberalized travel restrictions to the island nation and some airlines are gearing up for scheduled service, the virtual ban on flying a private aircraft from the U.S. to Cuba remains in effect.

Two Eagles Team Launches Pacific Flight (Updated)

Two balloonists lifted off from Saga, Japan, about 6:30 a.m. local time on Saturday in a quest to cross the Pacific and set new distance and duration records for their category of aircraft. Troy Bradley, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Russian Leonid Tiukhtyaev plan to continue flying for up to 10 days, perhaps to Albuquerque or beyond.

Man Sentenced For Pointing Laser At Police Helicopter

A Maryland man pleaded guilty this week to a federal charge of pointing a laser at a Baltimore County police helicopter in 2014, the Baltimore Sun reported. The helicopter was flying over a high school in September when a green laser beam twice illuminated the cockpit, according to the Sun's report on the court case. James Robert Hensler, 24, will be sentenced in March and faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Medical Reform Still Has Friends In GA Caucus

Advocates of third-class medical reform hope the campaign will forge ahead with help from new leadership in the congressional GA caucuses. Sens. John Boozman, R-Ark., and Joe Manchin, D-W.V., will co-chair the Senate caucus. In the House, Reps. Sam Graves, R-Mo., and Marc Veasey, D-Texas, will serve as co-chairs. Boozman and Graves (also a member of the House Aviation Subcommittee) had previously spearheaded medical reform legislation.

New Sleep Apnea Rules March 2

The FAA will impose new guidance on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to air medical examiners on March 2. The new rules are much different than the controversial 2013 edict that came from then-Chief Flight Surgeon Fred Tilton, which automatically grounded pilots with body mass index of 40 or more.
