As early as 1974, Snecma (Safran) and General Electric (GE) founded a 50/50 common enterprise, CFM International, to create a revolution in civil aviation engines. Proven to be a model of cross-border cooperation, this Franco-American relationship led to the CFM56, the world's best-selling aerostructure, the Boeing 737 and Airbus A 320 engines.
