Overall, CFM has delivered more than 31,000 engines to date and the current production engines continue to lead the industry with world-class reliability and low cost of ownership.  The CFM56-5B has logged more than 100 million flight cycles and 180 million flight hours powering the Airbus A320ceo family since 1996, while the CFM56-7B engine surpassed 170 million cycles and 300 million hours since 1998.

"This is a remarkable achievement," said. Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International.  "Although our founding fathers were confident the program would be a success, I don't think even they could have dreamed of what we would eventually accomplish with this product."

CFM56 engines power the Airbus A318/A319/A320/A321, the A318 Elite and A319CJ, A320CJ, and A321CJ corporate jets and A340-200/-300 models and the Boeing Classic 737-300/-400/-500, Next-Generation 737-600/-700/-800/-900/-900ER and BBJ and DC-8 Super 70 airplanes, as well as military applications such as the U.S. Air Force KC-135R tanker aircraft.

CFM56 engines are a product of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines and the world's leading supplier of commercial aircraft engines.
