AIM’s ability to provide management expertise in the form of Technical Support and Aircraft Engine
Maintenance, ensures its customer’s competitive edge in today’s aviation marketplace. AIM is specially geared
to perform work away from its base of operations, and has immediate access to the necessary personnel and
state of the art portable inspection equipment to accomplish the required tasks.
AIM’S services include:
TOP CASE REPAIRS
AIM is capable of performing on-site FAA/EASA Dual Release 8130-3 Top Case Repairs on all CF6 and CFM56
Series Engines. This cost-effective alternative to expensive shop visits, incorporates replacements or repairs
to/blending of HPC blades.
For less significant damage, AIM provides a blend borescope service of blades. This is performed without the
need for any engine disassembly. These repairs are offered with an optional FAA/EASA Dual Release 8130-3.
TAGGING ENGINES SERVICEABLE
AIM is capable of tagging engines serviceable for installation onto another aircraft. This is beneficial to those
customers without a maintenance program, or with an aircraft in between maintenance programs.
Full DVD video borescope inspections of Airframes, Engines & APU’s with a comprehensive written report and
optional FAA/EASA Dual Release 8130-3.
ENGINE RECORDS REVIEW
Timely identification of discrepancies, such as the installation of unapproved parts or missing documentation
saves our customers time and money. AIM audits all current and historical maintenance cards, installation
records, part tags, approval certificates, service bulletins, AD notes, and other necessary documents required
for the traceability and proof of serviceability of the engine.
PRE & POST LEASE and PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS
AIM's service is essential to any aircraft lease transaction. The condition of an engine, its QEC, and general
inventory are vital when leased equipment goes out or comes back. Lessors and lessees alike can protect
themselves with the knowledge that the equipment is in the condition that their agreements call for. AIM's
inspection reports provide an essential tool for dealing with any engineering, legal, and maintenance issues.
For stored or active aircrafts that do not meet minimum service hours, AIM preserves fuel & oil, and secures a
watertight barrier. This extends the life of engines & APU's and aids in the prevention of corrosion.
AIM’s inspection equipment is top-of-the line.
The GE XLG3™ VideoProbe® is a revolutionary new video borescope that improves inspection productivity. All-
Way® articulation and high-output illumination deliver sharp, clear images for critical decision making. High-
resolution wide VGA LCD screen delivers incredibly sharp, bright images. The new measurement technology
enables inspectors to both view and measure a defect using a single tip optic, eliminating the extra steps
required to back out, change the tip and then relocate the defect. In effect, 3D Phase Measurement
provides accurate measurement “on-demand” while saving time and increasing overall inspection productivity.
The XLG3 VideoProbe with 3D Phase Measurement is one of the most advanced and technically powerful
visual inspection tools available.
The Wolf Blending Scope is a highly cost saving repair tool, designed especially for the on-wing blending of
HPC blades. This tool is designed like a traditional borescope. Its shaft is inserted through the standard
borescope ports. A motor drives the tip with the mounted grinding tool up to several thousand rpm. The blending
process is observed through an inbuilt high resolution optical lens system either by direct vision through the
ocular eyepiece or via a standard video camera system on a monitor. A wide range of tools for cutting, grinding
and polishing are available in various lengths and forms and may be fitted to the unique patented miniature drive
head of the Blending device.
The Viper 4040CE is the latest technology in Vibration Analyzers. When state of the art tools are combined with
our experience and techniques, our customers receive the highest quality reports available.
