Today Germany’s TUIfly and CFM celebrated a new first-run time-on-wing world record set by a CFM56-7B engine powering one of the airline’s Boeing 737-800s. This engine logged more than 50,000 hours without a shop visit. That’s equivalent to 2,083 days or nearly six years!
“This record is a remarkable achievement and we are delighted that the technical and flight operational assistance from TUIfly have made such a record possible.Here you can see what a first class engine, in conjunction with professional flight and maintenance operation, can achieve, “said Friedrich Keppler, Managing Director TUIfly.
This is a remarkable performance.
