Snecma To Provide Full CFM56-5B Support for ACJs
Snecma and Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) have entered into an agreement for Snecma to support the CFM International CFM56-5B turbofans that power the Airbus Corporate Jetliner series. Snecma builds the CFM56 in a 50/50 joint venture with General Electric, while ACJC is responsible for the outfitting and support of Airbus executive aircraft. Snecma has recently launched its EngineLife brand, under which it provides engine MRO services to operators. The agreement will provide engine condition monitoring, shop visits, foreign object damage protection, LRU pool access and repair and spare engine availability. “The partnership is designed to answer ACJ operator demands by proposing a dedicated team and support services based on a flight-hour rate to allow better planning for engine maintenance costs,” said Philippe Petitcolin, CEO of Snecma.
