PH-MLQ SOCATA TB-10 Tobago GT c/n 2188 - Martinair Vliegschool - Hoogeveen airfield in Holland - 17 April 2004 vliegveld Hoogeveen (EHHO)

The SOCATA TB-10 Tobago is an all-metal low-wing cabin four-seated touring aircraft. In 1975, SOCATA (Société de Construction d'Avions de Tourisme et d'Affaires) started the development of a new light aircraft to replace the ageing Rallye. A universal low-wing four-seat airframe was chosen to be the basic of a new light aircraft line. The prototype, designated SOCATA TB-10 flew first on 10 February 1977. Three development aeroplanes followed this prototype "F-WJZP". Deliveries of the production TB-10 Tobago planes, initially powered by a 180 hp Lycoming O-360-A1AD engine, started in 1979. Next to the TB-10 Tobago the airframe was the base of a family of light aircraft, starting in 1980 with the TB-9 Tampico followed later that year by the TB-20 Trinidad. Over 720 SOCATA TB-10 Tobago's were built.
The ICAO Aircraft Type Designator for the SOCATA TB-10 Tobago is TOBA.

On 12 June 2002, SOCATA TB-10 Tobago GT c/n 2155 was registered F-GOIA with SA EADS SOCATA, Aeroport Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees. On 16 March 2004, registration F-GOIA was cancelled as exported. On 22 March 2004, SOCATA TB-10 Tobago GT s/n 2155 was registered PH-MLQ in the Netherlands with Martinair Vestiging Vliegveld Lelystad BV, Lelystad. The 2002-built aircraft was operated by Martiniar Vliegschool at Lelystad Airport. Today, the Martiniar Vliegschool is known as Martinair Flight Academy (MFA). In the summer of 2018, the Martinair Flight Academy (MFA) started working together with the KLM Flight Academy (KFA) at Eelde and has been integrated in the KFA since. From 4 May 2020, the entire KLM Flight Academy (KFA), including the former Martinair Flight Academy (MFA) maintenance, etc., works from Groningen Airport Eelde.
On 17 April 2004, Martiniar Vliegschool' SOCATA TB-10 Tobago GT PH-MLQ was seen at vliegveld Hoogeveen (EHHO).
