Our company


Safran Aircraft Engines, the aircraft engine manufacturer

Safran Aircraft Engines designs, develops, produces and sells engines for commercial and military aircraft and satellites. We also offer a complete range of support services to airlines, armed forces and other operators, including fleet management.

Part of the international high-tech group Safran, Safran Aircraft Engines deploys design, development and production capabilities that are behind some of the world's most innovative technology developments. Our extensive Research & Technology efforts help the aviation industry meet its ambitious environmental protection objectives, by developing aircraft engines that are increasingly quiet and economical.

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 31,000 engines delivered (as of May 31, 2017), 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. With more than 16,000 orders and commitments logged as of July 31, 2018, the LEAP is already the best-selling engine while still under development in the history of aviation.

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.

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

For Safran Aircraft Engines, quality is a never-ending commitment. We have long applied exacting quality assurance provisions, including a proactive continuous improvement initiative.

These provisions, which fall within the scope of the corporate Safran+ business improvement plan, have the following objectives:

  • Meet customer and regulatory requirements
  • Consolidate our market positions
  • Provide solid foundations for development.
Our Quality policy is anchored in five major objectives:
  • Keep processes under control
  • Quality fundamentals understood and respected by everybody
  • Proactive feedback
  • Products designed to achieve "zero defects"
  • Rigorously managed developments.



To achieve these objectives we call on a quality management system that is in compliance with:

  • The regulations and standards applied in our businesses.
  • Safran Group's quality policy and values.

All new hires at Safran Aircraft Engines receive appropriate training in Quality Assurance. Our suppliers and partners are also stakeholders in this initiative, and receive our support to satisfy jointly defined quality objectives.
