The development and subsequent production aircraft Socata TB-20 Trinidad was conducted on the basis of the model TB-9, Which represents the base version of the whole family Socata TB aircraft. However, the current version is largely different from the previous, with this also applies to the design and technical characteristics of the aircraft, which is one of the reasons why these aircraft are popular.

The fuselage of the aircraft has been thoroughly refined, and its aerodynamic shape has led to a decrease in the resistance during the flight to 12%, thus reducing fuel consumption and improve characteristics such as speed, maneuverability and handling.

In addition, these aircraft models in contrast to the previous versions have been able to carry on his board and loads.

It is no less important hallmark of aircraft Socata TB-20 Trinidad and retractable landing gear is that to a large extent helped to save fuel when the flights and to develop higher speed performance.


Cabin Socata TB-20 Trinidad


After the basic version of the current model, the French aircraft manufacturers have presented a limited edition model - Socata TB-20 Trinidad Excellence, differing not only an improved view of the cabin, but also more efficient flight performance, modern means of avionics, etc.

Modification of the Socata TB-20C Trinidad is a special version of the aircraft. which can be used as a medical aircraft for transportation of ill persons, as well as a cargo aircraft.

Socata TB-20 GT - an improved version of the basic model, characterized by some very little effect on the flight performance of the aircraft, the properties, but more adapted to the pilots and passengers.
