REBTECH is pleased to announce the night vision lighting modification of two Bell 412HPs for the 250th Presidential Airlift Wing of the Philippines Air Force. The work was completed at the Villamar Air Base, Pasay City, Philippines. The aircraft are VIP transport aircraft for the Philippine government. REBTECH partnered with Serpenair, located in Makati City, National Capital Region.
Mr. Nilo Tam, CEO of Serpenair Group commented, “The Presidential Airlift Wing of the Philippine Air Force is proud to have partnered with REBTECH with the assistance of its in-country representative, Serpenair Group Inc., on the recent upgrade of their Bell 412HP’s. With the completion of the NVG installation, the helicopters can now operate on night missions with better safety and ease of operation. Likewise, REBTECH was able to undertake training and technology transfer to 15 technicians who support the avionics maintenance of the Presidential Airlift fleet."
REBTECH president, Richard Borkowski commented, “This project was very important for REBTECH. The opportunity was competitively bid, and we were happy to earn the business. It was a team effort between REBTECH personnel and Serpenair, and it was a pleasure to work with Mr. Tan and his team. We believe this is just the beginning of our relationship with Serpenair, and we are committed to providing the Presidential Airlift Wing years of exceptional support."
The NVG lighting modification for these Bell 412HPs included internally modified avionics and radios, brand new edge lit panels and the use of REBTECH proprietary SHADOWS™ screens over the electro-mechanical instruments. The installation was performed by REBTECH’s IA/A&P and was supported by the avionic technicians of the 250th Presidential Airlift Wing.
