The CFM56 Engine Family

Peace of Mind
CFM56 Engine Family

No other engine manufacturer can offer you a product quite like the CFM56 engine, with its reliability, environmental benefit and investor appeal. When it's powering your corporate jet, you'll enjoy total peace of mind.

The CFM56 Family

The CFM family of engines proves there is power in teamwork. The 50/50 collaboration between GE and French engine-maker Snecma is more than 30 years strong. The engines produced are technologically sophisticated market leaders in every category in which they compete.

Executive operators demonstrate their confidence in CFM56 by making it the engine of choice for the A318 Elite and A319 Corporate Jet. In 2005 and 2006, 35 out of the 36 new A318 Elite and A319 Corporate Jet owners chose to power their aircraft with CFM56-5B rather than an alternative engine. The CFM56-7B is the sole power for the Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) series.

Governments around the world also know the secret of our engine. The Czech Republic, France, Italy and Thailand chose CFM to transport their VIPs.

Nearly 16,000 CFM engines are in service with more than 450 customers around the world.
