Our company




Safran Aircraft Engines, the aircraft engine manufacturer

A world-class aircraft engine manufacturer

A maker of aircraft engines for 110 years, Safran, through its Aircraft Engines subsidiary, designs, develops, produces and markets, alone or in partnership, engines for civil and military aircraft, and for satellites. Our business is based on a clear vision of the market, unrivaled expertise, state-of-the-art production capabilities and a complete range of services for optimized engine maintenance and fleet management. 
Given the challenges of the fast-growing aviation market, Safran Aircraft Engines is building foundations for the future and planning ahead to meet customers' evolving requirements by investing in new technologies and developing engines that are even friendlier to the environment.


Safran Aircraft Engines's business is organized in four main sectors :

Commercial Engines

Safran Aircraft Engines operates in all segments of the civil aviation market, drawing on our clear vision of this market, unrivaled expertise and world-class industrial capabilities.

The global success of the CFM56® family, developed, produced and marketed by CFM International, the 50/50 joint company between Safran Aircraft Engines and GE, clearly reflects our globally recognized expertise. With more than 32,500 engines delivered (as of May 31, 2019), the CFM56 is the best selling engine in the history of aviation, and the most reliable of its generation in the single-aisle commercial jet segment. Safran Aircraft Engines and GE now produce the new-generation LEAP turbofan engine, also via CFM International, that has made its service entry in august 2016. The LEAP benefits from the top technologies of its two parent companies: new-generation composites, 3D aero design, additive manufacturing and more. CFM International has already recorded over 18,000 orders and commitments for the three versions of the LEAP®.

Safran Aircraft Engines is developing a new-generation engine to meet the growing needs of the premium business jet segment, the Silvercrest®. And we are a major contributor to the large turbofan segment, based on partnerships with GE (GE90, GP7200, CF6-80 and GE9X). Through PowerJet, our 50/50 joint company with UEC-Saturn , we make the SaM146 engine for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional jet.

Military Engines

Safran Aircraft Engines offers advanced propulsion solutions to today's armed forces, including the M88 jet engine for the Rafale multirole fighter, and the TP400 turboprop engine for the Airbus A400M military airlifter, via the European consortium Europrop International. Safran Aircraft Engines designs, develops, builds, sells and supports engines for 20 different types of aircraft deployed by 30 countries. With nearly 5,000 of these engines now in service, Safran Aircraft Engines constantly demonstrates its technological expertise and competitive advantages, including 60 years of experience in making state-of-the-art military jet engines.

Space Engines

Safran Aircraft Engines designs, develops and produces propulsion systems and equipment for satellites. 


As an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Safran Aircraft Engines ensures the highest possible dispatch reliability for our customers, including airlines, other operators and leasing firms. Through our support services brand EngineLife®, we give our commercial customers a complete range of fast, efficient services, tailored to each customer's specific needs. Safran Aircraft Engines deploys a global network of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) shops, along with 12 centers of excellence in parts repair. In short, we cover the complete engine life cycle, from service entry to dismantling.

For further information : Safran group Ethical Guidelines

Gender equality

Gender equality – SAFRAN AIRCRAFT ENGINES Rating: 89/100

Criterion No. 1: Difference in average salary between men and women 39/40

Criterion No. 2: Comparison of the percentage of men and women having received a raise 20/20

Criterion No. 3: Comparison of the percentage of men and women having received a promotion 15/15

Criterion No. 4: Whether all women received a raise on returning from a maternity/adoption leave 15/15

Criterion No. 5: Number of women in the top 10 paying positions 0/10

According to the French law of September 5, 2018, and its application decree of January 8, 2019, on "Freedom to choose your professional future" (Liberté de choisir son avenir professionnel), companies must measure five gender equality indicators and publish their overall score. The primary aim of this law is to eliminate compensation discrepancies between men and women. SAFRAN AIRCRAFT ENGINES's overall score is 89/100, which exceeds the targeted threshold of 75 points as defined by the decree.

Health Safety Environment

Industrial environment

To manage the risks inherent in our industrial activities

Safran Aircraft Engines was one of the first companies in the Safran group to launch a continuous improvement initiative and certify all production sites to ISO 14001. Safran Aircraft Engines pays particular attention to waste processing, consumption of natural resources and emissions.

All company facilities have developed selective sorting, along with preventive actions to reduce waste at the source, and thus decrease the overall amount of waste produced. Based on these measures, Safran Aircraft Engines has been able to double the amount of recycled waste in just four years.

We also focus on economizing water resources, and have made a commitment to recovering and recycling wastewater from our plants. Today, the volume of reused water is ten times greater than the volume of non-recycled water.

From the energy standpoint, each facility has a monitoring plan to guarantee optimum boiler efficiency and emissions. We have also installed two co-generation units, as well as automated lighting and computer management systems.

In addition, we have undertaken studies to assess and monitor the quality of the water table and soil condition at our industrial sites. Safran Aircraft Engines applies preventive actions at all sites where needed to control potential pollution risks.

Safran's commitment to Health, Safety and the Environment


Quality, a top priority

At Safran Aircraft Engines, quality is a permanent commitment. Over the years, we have put in place a set of rigorous quality measures, including a proactive policy of continuous improvement.

These measures are all part of our Safran+ improvement plan and are designed to:

  • Further improve flight safety, which is our absolute priority
  • Meet the requirements of customers and regulations
  • Strengthen our market positions
  • Support our development and growth
Our Quality policy is anchored in five major objectives:
  • Well managed processes
  • Fundamentals of quality understood and observed by all
  • A dynamic of feedback and lessons learned
  • Products with the aim of zero defects
  • Developments conducted with rigor



To achieve these objectives, we have implemented a quality management system that complies with:

  • Applicable regulations and standards in our industry
  • Safran's quality policy and corporate values


All new employees joining our teams today attend quality training tailored to their specific jobs and duties. Our suppliers and partners are also actively involved and benefit from our support to help them achieve the quality objectives we set together.
