CFM provided this video of their new engine’s start to the flight test program from October 6, 2014.  This is the engine competing with P&W’s GTF. The LEAP will be the exclusive engine for the 737MAX program and is available on the A320neo program.

An intriguing data point discovered yesterday is that the MAX engine is close to the ideal size for the Bombardier CSeries, if that OEM were to consider offering an engine selection.
