Under the terms of a Memorandum of Agreement signed by GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd. and CFM International, the two will work toward the development of a new CFM56 maintenance training center at Rajiv Gandhi Airport in Hyderabad. The center is envisioned to mirror CFM facilities operating in France, the U.S. and China, and would initially provide advanced courses in line maintenance and inspection of CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B engines, which power the majority of
the Airbus single-aisle series and all Boeing 737s, respectively. The planned location is in a special economic zone at the airport dedicated to maintenance, repair and overhaul.
