The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) makes it apparent that only airworthy aircraft should be operated. Airworthiness is the measure of an aircraft’s suitability for safe flight. The airworthiness certificate issued by the FAA, certifies that the aircraft is airworthy.
The FAA puts out what are called Special Airworthiness Information Bulletins, or SAIBs, to alert, educate, or make recommendations to the aviation community.
For more information please review this Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin.

MRO Americas 2016
RF System Lab will be exhibiting at the 21st annual MRO Americas Conference & Exhibition, presented by Penton’s Aviation Week, on April 5-7, 2016 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, TX.
The Aviation Week MRO Americas Conference & Exhibition will explore the future of aviation and defense maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) through a series of drill-down discussions and networking opportunities. Drawing 10,000 industry and government professionals, the event features the industry’s largest exhibition floor, which showcases 700+ solution providers to communicate actionable solutions, build contacts, and exchange ideas.
Borescope expert Zack Wessels will be representing RF System Lab in the exhibit hall at booth #3927. He will be offering free demos of the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) articulating video borescope and answering questions about how the joystick-controlled, 4-way articulating VJ-Advance can help aviation professionals confidently complete equipment inspections. The VJ-Advance’s numerous features can make your job faster and easier for any aviation professional looking to add a high-quality inspection camera to their arsenal; especially the 3.9mm diameter borescope, which is the perfect fit for Pratt & Whitney Engines.
During the event, industry leaders from the airlines and MRO supply chain as well as military professionals will discuss a number of the key dynamics shaping the commercial airline business today. Kevin McAllister, President and CEO of GE Aviation Services, will deliver the event’s opening keynote address. Scheduled speakers and a complete agenda are available at aviationweek.com.

HAI Heli-Expo is the world’s largest trade show dedicated to the international helicopter community. The massive 2016 event took place earlier this month in Louisville, Kentucky. RF System Lab was proud to attend for the 6th time this year and be one of over 700 exhibitors to engage with approximately 20,000 helicopter professionals. This year’s event included 57+ helicopters on display, over 100 education courses, safety sessions, workshops, and forums.
Casey O’Tool and Jess Kuznicki, RF System Lab’s borescope experts, were on-site to provide information and showcase to attendees, who also got a chance to experience hands-on demonstrations of the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope. O’Tool and Kuznicki are confident that our VJ-Advance video borescope can make any job easier; whether you maintain Pratt and Whitney PT6 turbines, GE 90 engines, and everything in-between, or you perform airframe component, FOD, or airworthiness inspections. Remote Visual Inspection (RVI) anywhere within an aircraft maintenance facility, or on a flight line, is never a problem with the VJ-Advance video borescope because it’s battery powered, completely portable, and lightweight.
Hundreds of AMTs and aerospace technicians have chosen the VJ-Advance aviation borescope because they have found that it delivers the right mix of features, quality, and price. The ergonomic layout and pistol-grip design, makes all of the functions easy-to-use – including joystick controlled four-way articulation, photo capture, video recording, and LED brightness.
If you were unable to attend this year’s HAI Heli expo, you can find highlights of the show, videos, pictures, and more at #HAI_EXPO16 on Twitter. You can also test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope with a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-rep, no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections before you decide to buy.

RF System Lab borescope experts Casey O’Tool and Jess Kuznicki are heading to the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky for the 2016 HAI Heli-Expo from February 29 – March 3, 2016. The Heli-Expo is the world’s largest tradeshow dedicated to the international helicopter community featuring 1.2 million square feet of space with 700+ exhibitors, 57+ helicopters on display and over 100 education opportunities including education courses, safety sessions, workshops, and forums; some designed specifically for maintenance professionals.
This year, Casey and Jess are looking forward to returning to the Heli-Expo for the fifth time and will be presenting the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) articulating video borescope in booth 9346. The VJ-Advance has become a favorite with top names in aviation, especially the 3.9mm diameter borescope, which is the perfect fit for Pratt & Whitney engines.
Aviation professionals looking to add a high-quality inspection camera to their arsenal can stop by the RF System Lab booth for a hands-on demonstration of the VJ-Advance video borescope and experience the ease of joystick-controlled articulation. Casey and Jess will be available to answer any questions about remote visual inspection for helicopters and provide details about how the VJ-Advance is a must-have addition to any quality control and maintenance program.

RF System Lab Sales Consultant and borescope expert, Jess Kuznicki, returns from The Quality Show 2015 with a glowing review. Since some of the key industry markets at the show included fabrication, pharmaceutical, aerospace and aviation, and energy production, naturally, we were in attendance.
The Quality Show allows attendees to stay up-to-date on the latest advances in quality control tools and techniques, discover potentially-overlooked maintenance solutions, and to listen to several speakers covering topics of key issues in quality solutions.
A tradeshow that draws exhibitors from a wide variety of major industries, The Quality Show 2015 set up the RF System Lab booth for a high volume of visitors. Attendees were able to see the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope in-person and even request an on-site demo of the borescope.
When RF System Lab’s Jess Kuznicki was asked if we should go back next year, he highly recommended it. When one of our consultants who has talked all-things borescopes for the last five years suggests we go back, we’d be crazy not to.
If couldn’t meet Jess at the show and are interested in reviewing all of the features of the VJ-Advance for yourself, contact us about our no-cost, no-obligation demo program, or call us today at 888-747-6526.
