Helo exec promises tattoo for ARH contract

This could be a first for a defense industry executive.


In this video, Lynn Tilton, CEO of MD Helicopters, publicly promises to tattoo the company logo on her body — if the company wins the US Army’s pending armed reconnaissance helicopter contract.

The video was taped at a press conference in February at the HAI Heli-Expo in Long Beach, California. The company also provided the video to The DEW Line upon request.

    OMG. What an embarassment to the company.

    In fairness to Lynn Tilton, she is widely credited for rescuing and turning around the company. Her personal style definitely stands out in the aerospace industry.

    That is a very interesting post, Patents are needed for all new technology. If you come up with something be sure to get a patent on it or you may just have your technology copied.The Visto Philosophy mimics The Real Networks Philosophy… “When you can’t sell your products on your own, just sue anyone else that does the job better.”

    Electronics are the greatest things in the world. Be sure to patent any product idea or invention you come up with. So that noone copies any of your ideas.
