SR Technics announced it has started implementing MRO services on the CFM International (CFM) LEAP-1B engine at its Zurich facility. Following the agreement with CFM which was concluded at the end of 2020, SR Technics targets the authority certification by Q1 2022.
Relying on its strong relationship with CFM International and its parent companies GE Aviation and Safran Aircraft Engines, as well as on its extensive experience of more than 2,200 shop visits performed on CFM56 engines, SR Technics is confident it can establish initial capabilities on the LEAP-1B in less than a year.
“We are tremendously excited about expanding our engine MRO offerings by adding the LEAP-1B to SR Technics’ engine portfolio, and soon will be extending our support to the customers. This comes as a natural and essentially necessary move forward for SR Technics besides the services we already provide for Line Maintenance on the Boeing 737 MAX,” said Florent Leforestier, vice president New Engines, in charge of the capabilities introduction.
CFM International President and CEO Gaël Méheust said: “We certainly appreciate our long-standing relationship with SR Technics and the quality of work they bring to our customers. Adding the LEAP-1B is a natural extension on that association.”
