Paris, France — CFM International, a pioneer in aviation technology, is setting new standards in engine health monitoring with the integration of advanced machine learning capabilities into its LEAP engine series. As the LEAP engine fleet nears the 50 million flight hour milestone, this innovative approach is offering operators unprecedented accuracy in engine diagnostics and predictive maintenance.

The LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines, now equipped with this technology, utilize a complex model that processes data from various engine sensors during critical flight phases, including takeoff, climb, and cruise. This model employs probabilistic diagnostic and prognostic machine learning tools to analyze engine performance and predict potential issues. These tools, highly refined through years of operational data, can pinpoint problems with remarkable precision, leading to proactive maintenance and minimized downtime.

This leap in technology builds on over a decade of experience gained from CFM56 and other engine models. The machine learning system benefits from a vast repository of quality data, extensive product range experience, and profound domain expertise. The results are operational models that surpass any previous accuracy levels achieved by the company, enabling earlier detection and resolution of engine anomalies.

The application of machine learning in CFM’s LEAP engines represents a significant step forward in the aviation industry’s journey towards predictive maintenance. This technology not only enhances the reliability and efficiency of engine operations but also contributes significantly to the safety and operational efficiency of the global airline fleet.
