Sorry to burst the bubble, but N850WT is a TBM-850 single engine turboprop
Yeah, I’d say that the FA staff might want to take a look at that one, as those two designators are out of whack.
The ATC 7110.65 APPENDIX A doesn’t even list the G40 Avenger under Grumman…or anywhere else for that matter… But the TBM (TBM-700/850) is correctly listed as TBM7 under Aerospatiale.
Our aircraft code database has 5 different options for code TBM, but they’re all variations on ways to say “Grumman Avenger” which was known as the TBM when produced by General Motors. TBM-700 and -850 pilots should be filing TBM7 and TBM8, and most do.
Out of curiosity, what are the other codes for the Avenger that the FA database has?
code | mfr | type ------+----------------+-------------- TBM | Grumman | G-40 Avenger TBM | Grumman | Avenger TBM | GENERAL MOTORS | TBM Avenger TBM | GENERAL MOTORS | Avenger TBM | Grumman | TBF Avenger
Sorry Mark…I misread your statement.

Clear as mud to me now.
Interesting though that the 7110.65 doesn’t list it. It show’s the other Grumman types of the era except for the Avenger. http://www.websmileys.com/sm/sad/533.gif
Avenger at 310 knots?
