July 23, 2021

MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg has received German aviation authority (LBA) approval for the CFM56-7B and inducted the first engine of this type today. It is now the third facility within the MTU Maintenance network capable of servicing this engine type and plans to ramp up to at least 50 engines per year in the coming years.

“The CFM56-7B engine will be a key program for the next decade,” says Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines. “This introduction will increase the flexibility within our network to serve customer needs, builds on synergies within MTU Maintenance and ensures volume for our facility in Berlin-Brandenburg.”

Over the past 30 years, MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg has developed to become a world leader in the maintenance repair and overhaul of narrowbody, regional, business jet and helicopter engines. “We are a key partner within the MTU network, carry out around 350 shop visits per year and are excited to be introducing this enormously and commercially successful engine type into our portfolio,” adds André Sinanian, Senior Vice President and Managing Director MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg. “Full CFM56-7B overhaul capability complements our existing strengths, such as in the CF34-8/-10 program, is a logical continuation of our small and mid-size engine portfolio, and we look forward to providing customers with highly-customized services, individual, cost-effective workscoping and rapid on-site support.”

MTU Maintenance introduced the CFM56 family into its portfolio in 2000. As the number one independent CFM56 service provider worldwide with over 10 percent market share, the MTU Maintenance network has serviced well over 2,000 engines in the past 20 years.
