David Smith. Inspector, Managing Director and owner.

I started in the aviation industry in 1977 when leaving school I joined British Caledonian as an apprentice. On the way to RVI Ltd I spent time with British Airways, after their takeover of British Caledonian. In 1988 I moved to Virgin Atlantic Airways where I spent just short of 10 years before leaving airline life to join the borescope company “The Aviation Company”. The Aviation Co’ later Trans-Aero asset management closed its doors for business in December 2003 at which point I decided to set up my own company. Remote Visual Inspections Ltd was born.
