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.

Falcon 8X Now EASA Approved

The Falcon 8X is now EASA-certified, Dassault Aviation announced this week, and FAA approval is expected to follow by the end of next month. The design, based on the company's 7X, offers the longest range of any Falcon jet, up to 6,450 nautical miles, and the biggest cabin, almost 43 feet long. "Feedback from the operational trials -- cabin comfort, air conditioning, and in particular cabin noise -- was excellent," said Olivier Villa, senior vice president at Dassault Aviation Civil Aircraft.

NTSB Reminds Pilots To Report Weather

It might seem that in an age of instant online weather, the need for pilot reports, or pireps, would be a thing of the past, but that's far from true, according to a recent NTSB forum. "Pireps done right have enormous untapped potential to make aviation safer for pilots, passengers, and people on the ground," said board member Robert Sumwalt, in opening remarks. The two-day forum gathered a panel of experts to explore the status of the FAA's pireps system and share ideas for improving it.

G600 Cabin On Tour

Gulfstream is touring the U.S. this summer with a full-scale mockup of the cabin and flight deck for its new G600 business jet. The company unveiled its final plans for the new cabin last year at the NBAA convention in Las Vegas, but the mockup was introduced just a few weeks ago in Savannah, Georgia. The cabin is now on display at Teterboro Airport, in New Jersey, through Friday, and then heads west with stops in Chicago, Seattle, Denver and California, and ends in Texas, in late September.
