StandardAero Introduces CTEM for LEAP Engines

MRO Further Adds Capability to Portfolio of Services

StandardAero, having completed the CFM LEAP engine stand up, is now ready to offer Continued Time Engine Maintenance (CTEM) workscopes for LEAP powerplants.

It's good news for those operating the LEAP-1A found in the Airbus A320neo family, or the LEAP-1B from the Boeing 737 MAX. StandardAero can perform high-pressure turbine shroud replacements for either version of the LEAP engine. The company moved pretty quick in getting ready to service them, since the news comes scarcely one year after it signed a CFM Branded Service Agreement covering the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B. They added the engine types to their FAA Operations Specifications last October, later adding EASA and Transport Canada certification in similar fashion. In December they brought in their first customer engine for a pre-CTEM workscope.

StandardAero said they remain on pace to provide functional and performance engine testing for LEAP in mid-2024, further expecting Performance Restoration Shop Visit capability by the end of the year. Additional component repairs are in the works too, though the firm is keeping specifics close to the chest for the time being. 

Lewis Prebble, President of Airlines & Fleets for StandardAero, said the news is great to bolster support for some of the most common airline engines on the market. “StandardAero is excited to introduce LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B CTEM capabilities in support of the LEAP open MRO ecosystem. This achievement, which comes one year after we first joined the LEAP MRO network, enables us to support Airbus A320neo and Boeing 737 MAX operators worldwide. Our team of MRO service specialists here in San Antonio look forward to introducing additional capabilities throughout the course of 2024, culminating in PRSV workscopes.”
