VS Aviation partners with 8tree to offer dentCHECK-as-a-service

By 21. September 2023November 22nd, 2023Newsroom, Press

8tree’s dentCHECK-as-a-Service program grows with the addition of VS Aviation as an 8tree Certified Service Partner.

dentCHECK-as-a-Service delivers on-demand airframe spot-checks and nose-to-tail mapping for lease transitions and catastrophic hail damage scenarios.


Over the past year, 8tree’s dentCHECK-as-a-Service (daaS) business has digitally mapped and reported over 10,000 dents across a dozen commercial aircraft.  In response to growing market demand for such services, 8tree is building a global network of service partners, while also scaling 8tree’s internal service staff.  VS Aviation is the latest industry services expert to join 8tree’s service network.

Beginning August 2023, VS Aviation became an 8tree Certified Service Partner offering dentCHECK powered on-demand airframe inspection service in the Middle East.

“Love at first sight” was the immediate response from Samer Karadsheh, Director Flight Ops Engineering, when his wife and business partner engineer; Lara Obeid, CTO, came across 8tree’s profile at MRO Europe in 2021. “This is an ingenious solution to a problem that the whole aviation industry deals with, and I personally experienced it first-hand as an Aircraft Structures Engineer dealing with aircraft skin damage”, said Samer. VS Aviation LLC is an aircraft maintenance contractor and, along with 8tree’s support, we are excited to bring dentCHECK-as-a-Service (daaS) to our clients in the Middle East. “A solution like no other”, says Lara Obeid, as evident in the reaction on the engineers’ and sheet metal mechanics faces when their dent reporting challenge is solved with a single “click”.

“VS Aviation’s deep technical understanding of the airframe has established their reputation with global aviation maintenance customers”, said Arun Chhabra, CEO at 8tree.  “We are delighted to have them join 8tree’s global service network.  The combination of VS Aviation and 8tree’s 3D dent-mapping service is certain to empower customers in the region with accelerated turn-around-times and digitalized damage-records.”

The dentCHECK platform is the world’s only handheld-portable, completely wireless 3D scanner tool with integrated AR that is purpose-built for the aviation maintenance industry and recognized by all major aerospace OEMs. It can also be found integrated into drones and robotic automation cells.
