Engineering and consulting services

Operators naturally want to enhance operational efficiency and ensure the best possible fleet management. To address these concerns, Safran Aircraft Engines offers a complete slate of high value-added engineering and consulting services.

High value-added services


Safran Aircraft Engines has developed engine monitoring and diagnostics services, based on the analysis of technical and flight data, along with recommendations for fleet maintenance or management. Our new SFCO2® service allows operators to enhance the operational efficiency of their aircraft, thus reducing both fuel consumption and maintenance costs. Another new service from Safran Aircraft Engines is B.Side® remote borescope inspection, so that local borescopers at airlines around the world can consult with Safran Aircraft Engines' experts in just a few clicks.

The courses provided by Safran Aircraft Engines' Training Center enable operator staff to learn new techniques and better understand their engines' technical characteristics and optimum operating conditions.

Diagnostics and fleet management

More than 1,500 CFM56 engines are monitored by our engineering teams, based on flight data recordings.Safran Aircraft Engines offers a variety of remote diagnostics services, including generation of warnings, customer notifications and recommended maintenance actions.

As part of our Fleet management services, Safran Aircraft Engines regularly receives flight data from the operator in real time (via our remote diagnostics program). We analyze this data and, if needed, propose corrective actions. Operators receive a weekly report on the state of their engine fleet, and can call on special features such as engine performance tracking, troubleshooting, analysis, diagnostics and recommendations by Safran Aircraft Engines' experts. Thegestion_de_flotte.jpgse highly detailed indicators give the fleet manager a clear vision of the state of the fleet, to help maximize time on wing by reducing the number of required removals for servicing.

With each new generation of engines comes a new generator of sensors, with increased efficiency, lighter weight and growing volumes of data. CFM56 engines are now fitted with about a dozen sensors recording kilobytes of key data (300 to 500 measurements of pressure, temperature, vibrations, etc.) during takeoff and cruise. Tomorrow, the next-generation LEAP engine will be fitted with high-frequency sensors capable of collecting a megabyte of data. By analyzing this growing mass of data, MRO providers can better address airlines' real needs, based on increasingly accurate diagnostics and forecasts.

B.SIde® : Remote boroscope Inspection service

The new BSI experience: OEM experts just got closer

Safran Aircraft Engines introduces B.SIde®a new remote borescope inspection (BSI) service designed to help inspectors improve BSI performance and accelerate decisions with confidence to reduce time on ground.

Enhance collaboration

B.SIde® enables live image sharing, remotely during borescopic inspections (but also outside the engine or while at piece-part) by using the B.SIde® solution comprised of a video converter and an ergonomic web platform. Participants can collaborate (voice, photos, video, document sharing,etc.) and telestrate on photos or video in order to help inspectors remove any doubt.


Improve your BSI productivity

The B.SIde® platform offers a savvy checklist and report generation function that saves inspectors time by automatically organizing photos, comments, sanctions and electronic stamps in just a few simple clicks.
The B.SIde® cloud proposes a centralized location for all your borescope inspection reports so you can easily share them all while tracking your engine's health over time.


OEM expertise at your service

Access expertise from one of the world's leading aircraft engine manufacturers, with over 70 years of MRO experience, to help make decisions quickly and in full confidence.
By sharing videos and interacting in real-time, technicians talk directly with the OEM to get advice when needed, no matter where they are located.
