Havnt listented to many CFM engines yet, did first know them here today xD

The CFM56 are the most common engines in the industry.

Rolls Royce get the gold for me. Their engines look terrific on all aircraft but the 747 Classics.

I like the sound of the 737’s engine if they will be started during pushback. There is no better sound than that!

Don’t know much about engines, other than RR’s engine factory is 10 miles from me. The Trent is a river about 10 miles in the other direction.

GEnx for the win!

Kind of old school, but I like the JT8D. Nice engine, especially on the Boeing 737-200. :)

I like the Pratt and Whitney Canada PW100 family of engines, personally. Especially on a Dash 8. And its “Made in Canada”.
