Description: CFM International is a 50/50 joint venture between French Snecma Moteurs and American General Electric. The CFM56 family of engines, CFM International main product, is named after General Electric's CF6 and Snecma's M56 engines. The CFM56 engines have been designed to power short-, medium-, and long-range commercial and military aircraft since the first CFM56-1 entered service in 1974. These single-stage turbofans are currently available ranging from 18,500 to 34,000 pounds of thrust and four fan sizes. More than 25,000 CFM56 engines have been delivered to more than 350 customers all over the world.

The CFM56-2 engine entered service in 1982 gaining outstanding recognition in the military market with the F108 US military designation. This engine was selected to power the E-3, KE-3A, E-6A, KC-135R, RC-135 and C-135FR military aircraft. It receives leverage from the F101 engine core design. The single-stage CFM56-2 turbofan is rated at 22,000 to 24,000 pounds of thrust and features a low emission combustor and low noise characteristics compared to CFM56-1.
