About Advanced Turbine Support

Advanced Turbine Support, LLC has been delivering un-biased fleet experience and superior customer service for over a decade. We provide users with High Resolution Borescope inspections, cutting edge Ultrasonic & Eddy Current inspections and Magnetic Particle & Liquid Dye Penetrant inspections in accordance with OEM Technical Information Letters and Service Bulletins.

Many of our inspections were developed in house and are not offered by any other inspection company. We have developed proprietary techniques that allow us to perform remote blend removal of cracks or impact damage on the first few stages of most compressor rotor blades and stator vanes. We are the only company that can provide in-situ blending and or shim removal from the 7FA S0-2 and 7EA S1-2 stator vanes. We have patented Eddy Current Probes that allow us to perform the TIL 1795 L-0 40″ Titanium Blade inspection in-situ. Our final report delivery time averages 24 hours after the inspection has been completed. This timely service and commitment to our customers saves millions of dollars in lost availability and maintenance costs.
