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.

Heli-Expo 2015 took place in sunny Orlando, Florida last week. The event, which ran March 2-5 at the Orange County Convention Center, brought rotorcraft experts from around the globe to enjoy technical sessions, an awards dinner, and a packed exhibit hall.

Casey O’Tool and Jess Kuznicki, RF System Lab Sales Consultants, were onsite presenting the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope at booth #2518. O’Tool remarked that the exhibit hall traffic never slowed down and that this year;s turnout was, as expected, fantastic. O’Tool and Kuznicki were able to meet many new potential customers as well as say hello to a few familiar faces.  Metro Aviation and Hillsborough Aviation were just a few of the current VJ-Advance customers to stop by the booth.

O’Tool and Kuznicki also had the chance to attend the HAI Salute to Excellence Awards Dinner as guests of Finnegan, the largest patent, copyright, and trademark law firm in the world. They had a great time mingling with other attendees and were grateful for a delicious meal and top notch entertainment.

At the beginning of next month, RF System Lab borescope experts Casey O’Tool and Jess Kuznicki will trade the frigid temperatures of Traverse City, Michigan, for the warmer weather in Orlando, Florida, to attend HAI’s Heli-Expo 2015.  This year will be our fourth year at Heli-Expo, which is taking place from March 2-5, 2015,  at the Orange County Convention Center.

Heli-Expo is the world’s largest helicopter show, and the conference website boasts that it features over 1 million square feet of exhibit and meeting space.  Additionally, the trade show promises over 700 exhibits, 60+ helicopters, and an audience of around 20,000 helicopter industry professionals.

We are looking forward to returning as one of those 700+ exhibitors.  Casey O’Tool and Jess Kuznicki will be presenting the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope to aviation professionals looking to add a high-quality inspection camera to their arsenal.  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.

The world’s largest helicopter exposition and trade show is coming up next month when the Anaheim Convention Center hosts the 2014 Heli-Expo put on by Helicopter Association International. With over 20,000 attendees and 750 exhibiting companies, HAI estimates that nearly $3 billion in business transactions will be facilitated as a result of the show.

“Heli-Expo is one of our best events of the year, it is always a success and likely the best opportunity to meet professionals from the helicopter industry”, said RF System Lab sales consultant Casey O’Tool.

RF System Lab will be exhibiting for the fourth year in a row. The 2014 exhibits will open at 10:30AM on Tuesday, February 25th. This conference is the best chance to get face time with key decision makers and check out the latest products and services within the helicopter industry.

The VJ-Advance articulating video borescope from RF System Lab is a high-end borescope with a very competitive price point. The VJ-Advance is a groundbreaking visual inspection device that can help maintenance professionals document inspections and services performed on vertical lift aircraft. Not only is the VJ-Advance a preferred device for helicopter maintenance, but is also used in fixed-wing aviation, security and defense, oil and gas, and the chemical processing industries. The VJ-Advance is the perfect on-the-go video borescope. Weighing in at only 23oz and operable with just one hand, it is the most user-friendly video borescope available while still having all the bells and whistles of units costing two and three times as much.

The Helicopter-Exposition 2012 produced by Helicopter Association International was highly anticipated by RF System lab.  Heli-X tradeshow was comprised of more than 18,000 attendees and over 600 exhibitors providing ample potential for success.  The tradeshow had every major player in the industry Sikorsky, Augusta Westland, Bell Helicopter, Eurocopter, Russian Helicopter and Enstrom Helicopter.   The show was hosted by the city of Dallas in Texas.  The Dallas one million square foot convention center was packed with displays ranging from small buildings to over 65 Helicopters.  My feet hurt before I even had the booth setup on Saturday.  The show was scheduled for three entire days of conferences, meetings and exhibits. 

The Heliopter-Exposition 2012 tradeshow was highly anticipated due to the recent release of our VJ-Advance 3.9mm 1.5m articulating video borescope.  Our flagship line of 4-way articulating joystick controlled 6.9mm video borescopes were slightly too large to compete for the compact turbine engines used by the majority of Helicopter manufacturers.  However, the 6.9mm unit with 5.0 meter insertion tube is perfect for Main Rotor Blade Inspections.  The smaller turbine engines have restricted access points for insertion or require the need to use factory supplied guide tubes limiting the size of the insertion tube required to complete the internal inspection.  The VJ-ADV 3.9mm 1.5 meter 4-way articulating video borescope from RF System lab was well received at the Heli-Expo making it a great success with many opportunities on the horizon. 

All of our direct competitors such as Olympus, Machida, fiberscope.net and borescopesrus, were present at the tradeshow making it very easy to compare features and functions of multiple video borescopes.  Many of the interested potential customers pointed at the compact ergonomic design of the VJ-Advance which makes it perfect for inspecting engines from ladders, scaffolding or platforms with only one person.  They also were impressed with the easy to use direct USB file transfer adapter allowing the end-user to quickly get the images from the on-board 1GB micro-SD and save them to their computer.  I really enjoyed meeting everyone at the tradeshow and Dallas was a graceful host.  RF System lab looks forward to participating next year due to our success and increasing market share of the ever expanding aviation industry.  Please come see us at Heli-Expo in Las Vegas in 2013 but until then, you can see how our borescopes have been utilized in aviation by visiting our website click on borescope
