Bonus fourth day November 9th including two plant tours, two workshops, and two certification exams. Condition Monitoring is foundational to a sustainable reliability program, topics on Condition Monitoring have become rare and practitioners have few opportunities to learn from others in the field outside their own company. IMVAC is specifically for vibration analysts, condition monitoring specialists and reliability professionals. We want to share the successes of practical examples and inform practitioners of the new innovations available to manage equipment condition.

We are honored to have Major Brian Shul, Vietnam War Veteran as our Keynote address. During the Vietnam War Brian flew 212 close air support missions as an Air Force fighter pilot.  Brian was shot down near the Cambodian border, was unable to eject, and forced to crash land his plane into the jungle.  Severely burned in the ensuing crash, he was given up for dead.  Rescued by Special Forces, Brian endured one year in military hospitals where he underwent 15 surgical procedures and was told he would never fly again.

After much physical therapy, Brian miraculously returned to active duty flying.  He flew the A-7D, was an instructor in the A-10, and went on to teach at the Air Force’s Top Gun School. He culminated his Air Force career by flying our nation’s Top-Secret spy plane, the SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest aircraft ever built.  Brian flew covert missions in the Blackbird for four years and was the pilot who provided President Reagan with detailed photos of Libyan terrorist camps in 1986. During that time, he became the only SR-71 pilot in history to fly three missions on three consecutive days. He is also the only man to fly extensively with both the Navy’s Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds. Brian is a Spirit of Freedom Award winner, a Paul Harris Fellow, has appeared on the History Channel, and in 2011 was inducted into the Air Force Legends Hall of Fame.  

Mark your calendar to come and see Major Brian Shul’s keynote address at the International Machinery Vibration Analysis Conference (IMVAC Orlando) powered by Mobius Institute featuring Condition Monitoring presentations on Vibration, Ultrasound, Motor Testing, Alignment/Balancing, Infrared, and Lubrication. IMVAC will be held in Orlando, Florida November 6-8, 2017 at the beautiful Lake Buena Vista B Resort in Disney World Florida.
