RebTech ticks all the boxes for HeliStream
HeliStream has used RebTech in the past to modify two of AStars, and it has been extremely pleased with the company's work ethic and pride of workmanship, so much so that it is sending over another rotorcraft.
The UH60 is being equipped with night vision modifications.

HeliStream, based in Costa Mesa, California, has called on REB Technologies and its FAA STC for night vision lighting to kit out its helicopters. This involves a UH-60A for HeliStream. It is the first of two aircraft under contract with HeliStream, the second being a Bell 205, which has already started main component production at the RebTech facility in Bedford, Texas.

“Working with RebTech to equip our UH60 with night vision modifications was an easy decision,” says Golden Anderson, director of maintenance at HeliStream. “We have used RebTech in the past to modify two of our AStars and have been extremely pleased with its expeditious work ethic and pride of workmanship. The name HeliStream is synonymous with superior safety and service, so we like to partner with vendors who have the same standards. RebTech shares those same values, and we are proud of the partnership that has been built.”

“Obtaining the STC is important to RebTech since the market for that platform is becoming very popular over several mission capabilities. We have worked with HeliStream a few times before and when it came to us to modify the UH-60 we jumped on the opportunity. HeliStream was pleased with the components supplied for the aircraft and the work of our technicians,” adds Richard Borkowski, president of RebTech.
