Jackson Square Aviation has joined the growing list of leasing companies to recognize the value of CFM International’s TRUEngine program, qualifying 28 CFM56-5B and 46 CFM56-7B engines in its portfolio.
The TRUEngine designation serves as a method for identifying engines with CFM-approved content and facilitates product support of the engine system. Moreover, industry stakeholders can use the knowledge of engine content to evaluate engine value and re-marketability.
“Qualifying our CFM56 fleet in the TRUEngine program provides us with a clear, traceable pedigree for one of our most important assets and is a natural extension of our maintenance philosophy,” said Shannon Ackert, vice president, Commercial Operations. “We also think it’s great for our customers. We understand and appreciate the benefits we gain from working with a world-class manufacturer like CFM. By confirming engine content, TRUEngine streamlines the support process and ensures the applicability of CFM’s extensive fleet knowledge.”
Since CFM launched the program in 2008, CFM has continued to enhance the program to bring added customer value. One such enhancement includes the addition of cumulative lease days that qualify customers for complimentary annual spareengine support from the CFM lease pool in the event a TRUEngine qualified engine has an unscheduled removal.
TRUEngine has continued to achieve broad-based industry acceptance. Currently, more than 7,000 CFM56 engines in service with nearly 75 operators worldwide have been qualified for the TRUEngine program.
“We’re very pleased that Jackson SquareAviation has joined other leasing companies in recognizing the value that the TRUEngine designation can bring to their portfolios,” said Jean-Paul Ebanga, president and CEO of CFM International.
