CFM International and StandardAero have signed a CFM Branded Services Agreement (CBSA) for both LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines. Under the terms of the agreement, StandardAero will provide the full scope of LEAP Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) services for operators worldwide.
Services will be provided at StandardAero’s flagship engine overhaul and assembly facility in San Antonio, Texas, supported by its world-class network of Component Repair Centers of Excellence.
CBSA license holders are provided the highest level of CFM support and training, as well as expanded access to proprietary overhaul and repair technology as they work with CFM customers globally to provide comprehensive maintenance solutions.
“We have a long history with StandardAero through our CFM56 engine line. This experience and their reputation as a highly respected MRO provider will help strengthen the CFM open network,” said Tom Levin, VP of CFM Commercial Programs for CFM parent company GE Aerospace. “We are proud they are joining the LEAP open MRO ecosystem and anticipate that StandardAero will make significant contributions to the continued development of world-class support for the LEAP engine throughout its lifecycle.”
“We are delighted to add LEAP MRO capabilities in the U.S. through this major partnership with StandardAero. CBSA agreements are part of CFM strategy to give our airlines customers worldwide more choice in the market while helping them maximize their operations with the LEAP engine. ”
