CFM International and ST Engineering’s Commercial Aerospace business have signed a CFM Branded Service Agreement (CBSA) for LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines. Under the terms of the CBSA, ST Engineering will provide the full scope of LEAP Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) services for operators worldwide.
ST Engineering is the first provider in Asia to join the LEAP MRO network under a CBSA agreement. Comprehensive MRO services will be provided at their facility in Singapore.
ST Engineering has been a LEAP MRO network provider since 2020, providing quick turns for the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines. The company will also add this year test cell capabilities for LEAP-1B engines. This CBSA agreement further expands their scope to provide a full range of maintenance solutions for LEAP engines to the highest standards.
CBSA license holders are provided the highest level of CFM support and training, as well as expanded access to proprietary overhaul and repair technology as they work with CFM customers globally to provide comprehensive maintenance solutions. Given the commercial success of the LEAP engine family that entered into commercial service in 2016, demand for LEAP MRO services will grow rapidly in the coming years. More than 5,000 LEAP engines have been delivered to customers worldwide, with more than 10,000 engines still in the backlog.
