As a joint venture between American firm GE Aviation and Snecma (Safran) of France, CFM International is a multinational rocket engine manufacturer with headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Paris, France. Established in 1974, CFM International produces the CFM56 family of jet engines-making more than 22,000 engines for over 500 satisfied customers worldwide over the years. The name CFM is not an acronym and, therefore, does not stand for anything. It is merely a combination of the two parent companies’ terms for commercial engines: GE’s CF6 and Snecma’s M56.
The work split takes advantage of the rich aviation heritage and technical expertise of both companies. GE Aviation is in charge of the CFM56 core, which is derivative of GE’s F101 engine that was developed for the Rockwell/Boeing B-1 Lancer bomber. The CFM56 core consists of a high-pressure compressor, high-pressure turbine, and combustor. Snecma’s responsibility lies in the low-pressure turbine in the tail of the engine, which propels the CFM56 fan in the front, also designed by Snecma.
Over 520 global airlines, regional charter operators, and militaries fly with CFM engines as their powerhouses. With over 22,000 engines delivered, a CFM56-equipped plane takes off every 2.5 seconds. CFM’s in-demand product portfolio comprises of the following six engine models:
In addition to the CFM56 family of engines, CFM International has the brand new LEAP turbofan engine family-the engine of choice for the next-generation single-aisle jetliners:
With GE Aviation possessing over US$20 billion in revenues and Snecma having US$6.58 billion in sales, their joint venture CFM International boasts an impressive US$114 billion backlog fueled by the demand for their innovative LEAP engines.
