KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has been using the General Electric ground-based engine monitoring (GEM) system for the CF6-50 and CF6-80 engines for several years. During the last year, various additional elements of the monitoring system have been introduced to the maintenance departments and are currently operational. This paper describes the introduction and the application of the GEM system within KLM’s organization. Also some attention is given to the (potential) benefits that are related to the use of this system, as well as to KLM’s engine monitoring plans for the near future.
