Asset ImageIncorporating advanced, light-weight materials into its new LEAP engine, CFM is leading a new technology revolution.

The foundation of CFM International's new LEAP engine is heavily rooted in fourth-generation aerodynamic design and environmental technology, but it is the advanced materials the company is introducing in this engine – most of them industry firsts - that are changing the way aviation looks at jet propulsion and laying a solid technology pathway for the future engine developments.

The infographic below looks at the design, helping to minimise schedule interruptions and lower temperatures, as well as the use of carbonfibre composites reducing the weight yet increasing the durability. Efficiency and retention of performance, lean burn and low emissions coupled with the only active debris rejection system in the single-aisle market establishes LEAP technology as leading the way.
