The CFM LEAP is fitted to the Airbus A320neo (LEAP 1A), the Boeing 737 Max (LEAP 1B) and the Comac 919 (LEAP 1C).

Aero Inspection has EASA and FAA approval for borescope inspections on over 70 engines and APUs.

„Adding the CFM LEAP to our approval puts us in a strong position to support lessors and airlines for this new engine type,“ said Owen Bagnell, operations manager. „It was an obvious step for us. We are one of the 1st borescope specialist companies to have this approval“.

The CFM LEAP was introduced in 2016 as is a major step forward in engine technology. It can provide a 15% reduction in fuel consumption and a dramatic reduction in noise and emissions. CFM is estimating production of 500 LEAP engines in 2017, 1,100 LEAP engines in 2018, and 2,000 LEAP engines PA by 2020. With these figures, Aero Inspection is confident that they will be busy supporting airlines and lessors for their inspection and repair requirements.
