 Asian Aerospace 2004: CFM to power Bhutan airliners   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Here at AA’04, CFM (Stand No. A704) is promoting a recently certified acoustic upgrade to the very same engines used in the A319, as well as the entire A320 family.
The CFM powerplants won the honor by default after the engines originally scheduled to power the first A318s–the new Pratt and Whitney PW6000–fell from grace after ground testing revealed fuel burn deficiencies resulting from a faulty compressor design.
Other recent milestones for CFM, which is a joint venture between France’s Snecma and General Electric of the U.S., included entry into service of the CFM56-5C/P on a Swiss International Airlines Airbus A340-300.
