IVT has provided on-call, remote-based support of the entire global PHI fleet of over 250 helicopters since 1998.IVT was referred to PHI and was able to rectify the difficulty of getting the aircraft smooth enough to fly in the challenging environmental conditions the PHI fleet faces on a day-to-day basis.A version of the VIBS program was tailored to smooth their aircraft fleet using their existing tracking and balance equipment, which eliminated the expense to purchase special (or different) diagnostic tracking and balancing equipment.This VIBS program analyzes any helicopter’s unique configuration and identifies other hardware issues with the aircraft that affect the track and balance maintenance task.The pilot program was so successful that PHI entered into and has renewed their contract with IVT for 16 consecutive years for their entire global fleet.
Through a patented version of the VIBS technology, IVT has been serving select NASCAR teams for more than ten years. While most of these are under a non-disclosure or related agreement, IVT acquired a new NASCAR client during the 2014-2015 racing season -- #78 Martin Truex, Jr.
During the 2014 racing season Truex Jr. placed 24th (in overall points) for the season and only had 4 top-ten finishes. During the 2015 and 2016 seasons, however, Truex consistently placed in the top five, setting numerous NASCAR track records.

• Increased Horsepower: 15 HP
• Increased Torque and Acceleration
• Coast down was the longest ever recorded on this Chassis-Dyno (indicating every rotating component from the front of the engine to rear gear of the differential was perfectly balanced)
IVT was contracted to provide maintenance services for Silver State's fleet of over 190 flight school helicopters, including the R-22, R-44, Bell 407, Bell 206 and Hughes 500. Through the application of the VIBS technology, IVT was able to enhance fleet operational readiness from 43% to 96% within a three-month period. The entire fleet maintained 90+ percent operational readiness during the three years VIBS was used as their track and balance solution.
