TBM Spoilers

Recommended Posts

You are correct in assuming the TBM doesn’t have spoilers although the answer is a bit more complicated than “turboprops don’t have spoilers.” There are many turpoprops that use spoilers to cancel the lift from the wing after landing, like the Dash 8.  There are also turboprops that use spoilers to roll the plane such as in the MU2. But basically turboprops tend not to have spoilers because 1. They tend to be smaller planes with lower landing speeds and 2. Their propellers cause a lot of drag at idle thrust which essentially operate as speed brakes.
