Remote Visual Inspection
Aircraft Engine Borescope Inspections
Protect your aircraft engines and reduce ground-time with our aircraft engine borescope inspections.
Get a complete picture of your aircraft engine
Our aircraft engine borescope inspections, sometimes referred to as remote visual inspection, provide a complete picture of the internal condition of aircraft gas-turbine engines.
Pixel Perfect Picture
We use the latest Mentor Visual iQ video borescope from GE - The world’s first ruggedly portable, HD and 3D measurement-enabled video borescope system with unparalleled advanced detection.
Don't miss a thing
Industrial endoscopes allow us to inspect every part of the engine without needing to strip it.
Get quick results
We can complete inspections without needing to remove the engine from the wing, saving time and money.
Full report included
We provide a full video recording of the inspection and a written report detailing the health of your engine.
Leave no stone unturned
Our aircraft engine borescope inspections get right into the heart of your engine, and we use official maintenance data to improve the accuracy of our visual inspections.
If we discover out of limit damage to an HP compressor blade or LPT blade during our inspection, we can perform an in-situ boroblend repair of the damage. This is preferable to a costly engine shop visit or top-case repair - which can result in EGT margin degradation of up to 10%
How can we help?
We are conveniently based 10 minutes from Manchester International Airport and the UK motorway network.

Video: This is an RB211 HP compressor, stage 3 rotorpath liner inspection for a lease return engine, that we recently carried out. This is a very tricky job, that takes a lot of skill and patience! Our team were able to carry out the inspection, on time, to ensure seamless asset transition!
Video: Another example of a tricky inspection. This is a recent AOG borescope inspection, of the HP turbine on a reverse annular-flow engine! Our AOG response team were on site, within hours of receiving the call, to assist the MRO declare the aircraft serviceable and promptly return it to service!
