The VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope took a trip to Florida last week for the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference. Edward Thomas, RF System Lab Sales Consultant, was on site at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL to present the VJ-ADV and network with aviation maintenance professionals. We had a chance to speak with Edward Thomas about his experience at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference, and he had nothing but complimentary things to say.

NBAA Maintenance Management Conference Borescope

Edward Thomas presents the VJ-Advance video borescope to attendees at the 2014 NBAA Maintenance Management Conference.

Thomas started off by commenting that one of the best parts about the conference is that the attendees are always extremely knowledgeable about their industry, which means they also have a high level of familiarity with borescopes. He really enjoys being able to discuss the numerous features offered on the VJ-ADV models at a more detailed and in-depth level.

One of Thomas’s favorite events at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference was the party at Splitsville, sponsored by Gulfstream. He said that, in addition to free drinks, food and bowling, this party was a unique and fun way to meet other exhibitors and attendees. Everyone was randomly put on a bowling team, which allowed them to connect with one another in a more casual atmosphere.

A few notable connections that Thomas made at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference included Embraer, a well-known and respected aircraft manufacturer, and Duncan Aviation. Duncan Aviation, one of the largest, family-owned maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities in the world, discussed with Thomas about how their Rapid Response team could benefit from the quality assurance and efficiency offered by a video borescope such as the VJ-ADV. Rapid Response teams are expert in-field technicians who offer engine and APU support and services. In the case of Duncan Aviation, the Rapid Response team is available 24/7 to troubleshoot for grounded aircrafts around the world.

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope at NBAA Maintenance Management Conference, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescope in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.

The summit website notes that the 2014 Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit “will operate on four separate networking levels”: general sessions that include Soldier Award presentations and messages about leadership, an exhibit hall that provides the opportunity to meet hundreds of vendors (including RF System Lab), deep dive open meetings with relevant topics, and private one-on-one meetings with influential individuals.

Another exciting Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit announcement is that the proffer has been approved by the Department of the Army which, according to the website, “will allow over 175 key personnel from the Active Army, Army Reserve and National Guard who represent the operational, acquisition, Science & Technology (S&T) and Special Operations communities to attend.”

Joel Riling, VP of Government Programs at RF System Lab, is looking forward to exhibiting at the summit. He will be onsite to present the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope to attendees and show them how VJ-ADV features can exceed their expectations in the remote visual inspections (RVI) field. With its crisp image and video capture options, battery-operated versatility, and one-handed operation, the VJ-ADV is an excellent fit for the army aviation industry.

Stop by and see Joel Riling at the RF System Lab booth #911 starting on Sunday, May 4th for a chance to demo the groundbreaking VJ-ADV.

On April 30th and May 1st, you will find RF System Lab’s VP of Government Programs, Joel Riling, at the NDIA Global EOD Conference and Exhibition in Fort Walton Beach, FL. The conference is taking place at the Emerald Coast Convention Center, and this year’s theme is “Preserving Hard-won Gains; Building Capability and Sustaining Capacity”.

The event website states that the Global EOD conference strives to “facilitate contact and cooperation between industry and the EOD community with the goal of ensuring EOD forces have access to the ideas and technologies that originate in our nation’s industrial and academic base.” With keynote speakers Colonel Dean Meinert, USA and Mr. Thomas Dee, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy in addition to a conference full of events geared towards industry and EOD professionals, that goal seems very attainable.
