The TRUEngine technical program continues to expand with total engine enrollments surpassing the 12,000 mark, a 20% increase in the last 18 months. More than 200 operators have opted to enroll their engines in the TRUEngine program.

“The TRUEngine designation provides significant benefits to operators including optimized product support, higher asset residual values and enhanced warranties.” said Kevin McAllister, president andCEO of GE Aviation’s Services organization. “The continued growth of the TRUEngine program underscores the value of a technically robust and transparent means of identifying engines that have been maintained in a GE or CFM configuration.”

The TRUEngine qualification process includes the customer submitting maintenance records and a review by GE or CFM to ensure engine configuration and overhaul practices are consistent with GE- and CFM-issued engine manuals and other recommendations. There is no cost to participate, and the TRUEngine designation is fully transferable.

With the TRUEngine designation, engine owners, potential buyers, lessors and appraisers know an engine’s content and maintenance history have been verified by GE or CFM, enabling them to more easily evaluate engine configuration, asset value and re-marketability. Studies show engines maintained in the OEM configuration can have as much as 50% higher residual value versus those engines maintained with Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) content and/or Designated Engineering Repairs (DERs). The TRUEngine designation is provided on an individual engine serial number basis and remains in effect until the next shop visit.

Launched in 2008 for the CFM56* engine family, the program has since been expanded to include GE’s GE90, CF6, GEnx and CF34 engines. For more information, visit www.geaviation.com/truengine.
