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.

Rated between 31,200 and 34,000 pounds of thrust the CFM56-5C is the most powerful engine of the CFM56 family. It incorporates a second generation Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC), noise attenuation improvements, and increased climb thrust. The CFM56-5C powers the four-engine Airbus A340 long range airliner and entered service in 1993. It is perfectly tailored for all A340 variants including A340-300E which is powered by four CFM56-5C4/P engines.
