GATES expands CFM International MRO Partnership to LEAP-1A/-1B engines

GA Telesis Engine Services (GATES) has signed an agreement with CFM International (CFM) to provide MRO support for LEAP-1A/-1B engines. Through this agreement, GATES will have the rights and licenses to obtain airworthiness authority certification for MRO services on the LEAP-1A, which powers the Airbus A320neo Family, and LEAP-1B, the exclusive powerplant for the Boeing 737 MAX. GATES has a longstanding relationship with CFM as a licensed overhaul shop for CFM56-5B/-7B engines. The latest agreement builds on that partnership, expanding the suite of MRO offerings to LEAP engines to better support engine maintenance requirements of new-generation narrowbody aircraft.
