Snecma joins Airbus Corporate Jet Centre team
Snecma and Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) signed an agreement on November 26 for the engine manufacturer to provide full service support for the CFM International CFM56-5B turbofans that power the Airbus Corporate Jet family. Part of France's Safran group, Snecma builds the CFM56 engines in a 50/50 joint venture with U.S. company General Electric, while ACJC is responsible for the outfitting and support of Airbus VIP/executive aircraft.
Snecma has recently launched its EngineLife brand for its support services, under which it provides engine MRO services to a wide range of operators. Under the agreement with ACJC it will provide services such as engine condition monitoring, shop visits, foreign object damage protection, LRU pool access and repair, and spare engine availability.
