heli_expo_picturesHAI 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.

The only thing better than getting to visit Florida in April is getting to visit Florida with approximately 1,000 leaders in the aviation maintenance industry. Next Monday, April 21st is the first day of the premier event for aviation maintenance professionals: the 2014 NBAA Maintenance Management Conference.

According to the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference website, ” The 2014 NBAA Maintenance Management Conference in Tampa, FL brings together high-caliber educational programming, networking to provide relationships that last throughout your career, and a dynamic exhibit hall specializing in product and service providers for business aircraft maintenance, service and support.”

Although the conference is not open to attendees until Tuesday, the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference kicks off with a Pre-conference Golf Classic Tournament on Monday, April 21st. Other events and networking opportunities at the conference include informative speaker sessions, a Wednesday night reception at Splitsville bowling alley, and an impressive exhibitor hall with around 200 aviation-related booths (a number that has drastically increased over the last few years).

RF System Lab is showcasing the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope at the conference. After attending in the past, RF System Lab sales consultant Edward Thomas explained that this is a conference where VJ-ADV is a must-see. Thomas stated: “This is an excellent opportunity to speak with Directors of Maintenance to hear what issues they are currently facing, and discuss how the VJ-ADV Video Borescope may be used to help solve those problems.”

The VJ-ADV is the ideal tool for aviation maintenance professionals. The full, four-way articulation is joystick-controlled and responds perfectly to operator inputs. With the ergonomic layout and pistol-grip design, all the key functions – photo capture, video recording, LED brightness – are easily accessed with one hand, leaving your other hand free to hold the insertion tube. The high resolution, flip up monitor is bright and easy to see, and the crisp image quality delivered by the camera is second to none. Whether you are an aircraft owner, maintenance technician or flight department manager, you should stop by booth #405  to test the VJ-ADV and meet with Edward Thomas to see how this high-quality video borescope can work for you.

Edward Thomas is looking forward to networking with professionals in the industry. Visit him and demo the ground-breaking VJ-ADV at booth #405  starting at 12:00pm on Tuesday, April 22nd at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference.
