Engine maker CFM International has launched a three-year advanced technology acquisition programme, called Project TECH56, designed to identify, determine the feasibility of, and validate future engine technology needs.

Speaking at Farnborough, Gerard Laviec, CFM International's president and chief executive officer, says: "We are the market leader and will continue to provide the value our ustomers have come to expect from an industry-leading company.

"Right now, the CFM56-5B/P and -7 are the most advanced, reliable engines in the air and the best engines for today's single-aisle aircraft require- ments. Project TECH56 takes that technology to the next level.
