Borescope Inspections of Aircraft Engines

Borescope Inspections Services from RVI Ltd

A video borescope inspection carried out by RVI Ltd is a full health check of the singularly most expensive component attached to your aircraft  – The Engine.

This inspection highlights the visible defects ensuring your asset is in a condition worthy of sale or purchase, lease or continued service.

We carry out these inspections according to your requirements but always under the strict guidance and limits laid down in the current aircraft maintenance manual.

Our main asset is our impartiality, we are totally independent and are not swayed by the commercial pressures to “keep the engine on wing at all costs” or equally “pull the engine and pass on the costs!!”.

If after our inspection the engine is serviceable we will issue the industry recognised certificate, an “EASA Dual Release Form 1” certifying your engine’s continued serviceability. The video recording (DVD) of the inspection provides a comprehensive record of the health of the engine gas path at a fixed point in time.

Much of our work in this field is for Leasing Companies, Airlines and Maintenance Organisations performing pre-purchase, lease return and scheduled or non-scheduled maintenance inspections.
