RF System Lab had a memorable experience exhibiting at the NBAA Annual Conference for the third year in a row. Borescope expert and seasoned RF System Lab sales consultant Jess Kuznicki recently returned from the show, which took place in Orlando, FL at the Orange County Convention Center. The NBAA Annual Conference is the fourth largest tradeshow in the USA, so there was plenty to see and experience.

Despite the gigantic tradeshow hall, Jess was able to reconnect with many current customers and the RF System Lab booth was a popular stop. Many of the companies and individuals who came by to check out the versatile VJ-Advance video borescope informed Jess that the RF System Lab booth was on their “must-see” list. Visitors were impressed with the joy-stick controlled, four-way articulating insertion tubes, which come in a variety of sizes: 2.8mm, 3.9mm, and 6.9mm. One of the most popular insertion tube diameters for turbine inspections, a popular application in the aviation industry, is the 3.9mm diameter VJ-Advance. This insertion tube diameter fits perfectly in Pratt & Whitney guide tubes, making PT6 engine inspections stress-free.

When he was not connecting with current and potential customers at the RF System Lab booth, Jess enjoyed getting to listen in on speeches and presentations by industry leaders and had a great time networking at a social event at the Yard House.

Many attendees had the chance to test the VJ-Advance at NBAA, but even if you were not in attendance you can still try one out at your own facility! RF System Lab offers a no cost, no demo program, which you can sign up for right here. To find out more about the free borescope demo or to chat with a borescope expert, you can call the RF System Lab office at 888-747-6526 or visit the RF System Lab website.
