SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) and Safran Aircraft Engines have signed an agreement for SIAEC to provide engine maintenance services to Safran Aircraft Engines. The ten-year agreement encompasses engine Quick Turn (QT) and modification embodiment services for both CFM LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines. SIAEC will set up a dedicated facility with the latest engine and QT processes and state-of-the-art technology to support these services. The facility is expected to commence operations in 2020.
The LEAP-1A is one of two engine options for the Airbus A320neo family, while the LEAP-1B is the exclusive powerplant for the Boeing 737 MAX. The LEAP engine is a product of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between GE (United States) and Safran Aircraft Engines (France). This engine has experienced the fastest order ramp up in commercial aviation history and CFM has received orders and commitments for a total of more than 18,750 LEAP engines to date.Email Post to a Friend
