CFM ready for LEAP production ramp-up

The LEAP is the new generation engine designed by CFM International to replace the CFM56 and become the new global benchmark for the single-aisle aircraft market.

Already chosen by Airbus, Boeing and Comac to equip their future short-haul aircraft -- respectively the A320neo, the Boeing 737MAX and the C919, it features innovative technologies such as 3D woven composites.

By the end of April 2013, orders already totaled 4,500. This success is analyzed for us by Cédric Goubet, Director of the LEAP program at Snecma (Safran).
