Description: The CFM International LEAP-X is an entirely new baseline turbofan engine intended to power future replacements for current narrow-body aircraft such as Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s. The new engine leverages the technologies developed under CFM-funded LEAP56 technology acquisition program which started in 2005. CFM International plans to get the first engine demonstrator running by 2012 and achieve engine certification by 2016. The LEAP-X will reduce fuel burn by up to 16 percent compared to current CFM56 Tech Insertion engines.

The new engine's core will feature eight-stage compressor and single-stage turbine. LEAP-X will incorporate three-dimensional, woven resin transfer molding (3-DW RTM) technology that dramatically reduces engine weight while providing a more durable blade as well as Titanium-Aluminide (Ti-Aluminide) lightweight alloy. The 3-DW RTM technology is expected to reduce the engine weight by 400 pounds and the composite fan blade count by 25 percent.

On December 1, 2010, Airbus launched the A320neo aircraft family with two engine options which included the LEAP-X engine. The Airbus variant of the LEAP-X engine is called LEAP-X1A, now LEAP-1A.
