At the time of the engine’s launch in 2008, there was no specific aircraft application, just as with the original CFM56. However, following its launch by Comac as the sole engine choice for the C919 in 2009, Airbus followed in 2010 when it selected the Leap-1A engine as an option along with Pratt & Whitney’s PW1100G on the A320NEO. In 2011 Boeing selected the Leap-1B as the sole powerplant for the 737MAX.
