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 CFM56-3 engine entered service in 1984 providing a thrust range between 18,500 and 23,500 pounds. It is more reliable than its predecessors and it has been optimized for operation in severe inclement weather. The CFM56-3 is the sole engine powering the Boeing 737-300, -400 and -500 family. CFM International shipped the last CFM56-3 engine in December 1999.
