PARIS 2009: More benefits added to CFM TRUEngine programme
Airlines in CFM’s TRUEngine programme will soon get more from their membership with addition of new benefits.
The engine maker is to extend new part special guarantees and increase lease pool support for customers with TRUEngine qualification, announced executive vice-president Olivier Savin.
New parts installed at a shop visit will come with extended material replacement coverage. This will be transferable to secondary engine owners, providing TRUEngine status is maintained. Also, enhanced use of the CFM lease pool will be available to TRUEngine customers to support qualified engines in their fleets, in cases of unscheduled engine removals.
CFM also plans to work with customers if they wish to restore engines to CFM-approved configurations if non-CFM material is found in engines qualified for the TRUEngine programme.
Savin reported that, to date, more than 3,000 engines from more than 25 customers have qualified for the programme, which is a tool to track the engines in service which have a CFM-approved configuration. “It’s also a very big help for our support teams, who can prepare their support plans better knowing engines belong to the database.
