CFM:  The Power of Flight


CFM International (CFM) was been formed as a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines. Today, CFM is the world’s leading supplier of commercial transport aircraft engines and the best example of a successful international joint venture.


Since the first engine was delivered in 1982, CFM has received orders for more than 42,000 CFM56 and LEAP engines from 570 operators worldwide, of which more than 30,000 CFM56 engines have been delivered. In addition to the highly successful CFM56 product line, CFM introduced the advanced LEAP-1A engine into commercial service on the Airbus A320neo in August 2016. Two additional models, the LEAP-1B for the Boeing 737 MAX and LEAP-1C for the COMAC C919, entered commercial service in 2017 and 2019+ respectively. To date, CFM has garnered orders for more than 12,200 LEAP engines, with 100 LEAP-1A engines already delivered to ten operators.


The engine is delivering a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency along with significant reductions in noise and emissions signatures. All of this while maintaining CFM’s industry-leading reliability and overall cost of ownership. The agreement that established CFM calls for the two parent companies to share everything equally, from design and development to production and support.  Final engine assembly is performed both at GE facilities in the U.S. and Safran Aircraft Engines facilities in France.


The CFM partnership agreement, originally signed in September 1974, has been extended to the year 2040.
