Malaysia Airlines CFM56-3 Engines Achieve TRUEngine Status
CFM International has awarded the TRUEngine designation to 77 CFM56-3 engines used for Malaysia Airlines' fleet of Boeing 737-400 aircraft.
TRUEngineTM is a product of CFM International (CFM), a 50/50 joint company of Snecma (SAFRAN Group) and General Electric Company.
The CFM56-3 engines in the MAS fleet were awarded TRUEngineTM status following a comprehensive review of the airline's fleet operational data and maintenance records.
These records validated that maintenance of all of the engines is consistent with CFM International's requirements for those engine models, including maintenance practices, spare parts and repairs and that they comply with CFM issued engine manuals, service bulletins, and other maintenance recommendations.
"We are very pleased to receive the TRUEngine designation for our CFM56-3 engines," said En Mohd Roslan Ismail, Malaysia Airlines' senior general manager for Engineering and Maintenance. "Having a tool that is available to the industry which accredits that engines are maintained to the exacting standards recommended by the original manufacturer is a great resource for the entire industry."
The CFM56 engines of several more fleet owners will soon be evaluated for the TRUEngine designation, which will be available to all CFM56 engines meeting the criteria.
