LEAP EN­GINE

SP's Aviation - - CIVIL -

CFM, man­u­fac­turer of com­mer­cial air­craft engines, is a 50/50 joint ven­ture com­pany be­tween France’s Snecma (Safran Group) and the Gen­eral Elec­tric Com­pany (GE) of the United States.

The com­pany was founded in 1974 and has de­liv­ered more than 20,250 engines to more than 500 op­er­a­tors around the globe.

The LEAP en­gine fam­ily is the fastest-sell­ing in avi­a­tion his­tory with more than 14,300 or­ders re­ceived through Jan­uary 2018.

Initially, the LEAP 1B engines were re­port­edly fac­ing per­for­mance short­fall of close to four to five per cent in spe­cific fuel con­sump­tion (SFC). How­ever that seems to have been re­solved since.
