CFM56 Engine Fleet Surpasses One Billion Engine Flight Hours

On April 24, 1982, the first-ever airplane powered by CFM56 engines, a Delta Air Lines DC-8-72 powered by the CFM56-2, took to the skies. In the years after that, CFM International would go on to add seven additional engine models that, today, power more than 20 different commercial and military aircraft types for more than 600 operators across the globe.
