The names of CFM International and the CFM56 product line are derived from the two parent companies’ commercial engine designations: GE's CF6 and Snecma's M56.

Since its founding in 1974 through October 2011, CFM International has provided more than 23,000 engines for more than 500 customers throughout the world.[1]
