Sun 'n Fun 2015

The new and improved Batcopter with a Marvel Schebler carburetor

Marvel Schebler and Precision Airmotive are excited to announce that they will be attending the 2015 Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Florida. If you plan on attending, come visit us at booth number C-58.

This year, Sun ‘n Fun is sure to be an amazing event. One of the most exciting features is the scheduled performances of not just one, but two reputable jet teams; Breitling and the USAF Thunderbirds. Breitling is kicking off its first ever U.S. tour at Sun ‘n Fun on April 21, and will continue to perform throughout the week. This aerobatic display team consists of seven L-39 C Albatros jets and is the first and largest of its kind. The team “embodies the very essence of daring, speed, and audacity,” flying at speeds of up to 435 mph within 10 feet of each other.

The USAF Thunderbirds will also be performing on April 25 and 26. This team of American Airmen performs sharply choreographed, drill-style demonstrations. Solo pilots will also show off the capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon; the Air Force’s premier multi-fighter jet.

Aside from these two amazing jet shows, other airshows will take place daily, as well as a few nightly airshows. At the airshows, there is something for everybody. Tuesday shows will feature world aerobatics, Wednesday is Warbird day, and Thursday is all about formations. The original Batcopter from the Batman TV series and first Batman movie will also be performing. The Batcopter has recently been upgraded with a Marvel Schebler carburetor for enhanced performance.

Throughout the week there will be countless forms of entertainment including a balloon launch, a car show, evening movies and dinners, forums, workshops, and plenty of speakers. New features this year will include the Young Aviator’s Camping Area and a new and improved Warbird ramp. Women in Aviation International (WAI) is also excited to host the third annual Sun ‘n Fun Women in Aviation Luncheon. This event will feature a panel of speakers including WAI President, Dr. Peggy Chabrian.

At Marvel Schebler and Precision Airmotive, we are counting down the days until Sun ‘n Fun 2015! Don’t forget to come see us at booth C-58. We hope that you get a chance to enjoy Sun ‘n Fun with us this year.

Meet Mark Keeney Jr.

Meet Our Staff – Mark Keeney Jr.

Meet Mark Keeney Jr., the customer relations and product support specialist at Marvel Schebler. Mark mans the phones at the office and helps solve client’s problems on a daily basis. For application data, carburetor assembly questions, or anything else, Mark is there to help.

So how did Mark become an expert in such a complex industry? According to him, it all began with his knack for remembering different carburetor part numbers and being able to memorize troubleshooting guides. Initially, owner Tim Henderson was also a “wealth of knowledge” to Mark. “I think for the first two years my catch phrase was ‘Let me call you back.’ Talking to the guys with experience on the job is how I got it down,” said Mark.

After working with Marvel Schebler’s family of companies for 11 years, Mark still finds his job rewarding. “Most days it’s a lot of fun,” said Mark. “General aviation as a whole is a very small community. Everyone knows you; it’s kind of like your town except spread out all over the world.”

With Marvel Schebler, Mark has the opportunity to travel about three times per year. He speaks at Aviation Institute seminars and even goes to air shows with the company. Last year, Mark attended one of the nation’s largest air shows in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. “Oshkosh was amazing,” said Mark. “You can see really old airplanes, World War II stuff and P-51 Mustangs. Most places, if you see a Mustang it’s like finding a golden egg. Then you go to Oshkosh and there are 35 of them down the row.”

Surprisingly enough, before working with Marvel Schebler Mark had never been on an airplane! His first real flight was on a business trip from Cincinnati to Seattle. “The flight was about six hours, so if I didn’t like it I had a lot of time to sit there and not like it,” said Mark. Now, however, Mark is a seasoned pro when it comes to traveling.

Outside of work, Mark enjoys playing softball, riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, and spending time with his wife and two children. He is a big West Virginia football fan and enjoys an on-going rivalry with a friend who supports Oklahoma.

So if you end up needing technical help with your aviation carburetor you are likely to find out what a great asset Mark Keeney, Jr. is to Marvel Schebler and the general aviation world.
