SR Technics, a leading MRO service provider and CFM International (CFM) have concluded a LEAP-1B General Support License Agreement (GSLA). That enables SR Technics to offer a wide range of MRO services for CFM LEAP-1B engines. In addition to the CFM56 engine types, SR Technics will now also be able to support customers for the new-generation LEAP engine platform, starting with the -1B model.
SR Technics received EASA authority approval in early 2022 via the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA); U.S. FAA approval was granted through its bilateral agreement with EASA.
“With the new license, we have now taken a decisive step forward in the portfolio of our engine business. We are very proud to further extend our existing, very successful partnership and collaboration with CFM and to add this state-of-the-art engine type to our existing capabilities,” says Jean-Marc Lenz, CEO at SR Technics.
The LEAP engine is one of the top choices in the world for mid-range aircraft, as the successor to the CFM56 family. The LEAP-1B engine offers Boeing 737 MAX operators enhanced performance in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, lower NOx emissions and noise, as it is designed to meet the challenge of the path to decarbonise air transport.
