Dear Mr. Hoyer,
My name is Paul Schulten and I fly a Christen Eagle in airshows and competitions. I am proud to say it is powered by a fantastic IO-360 built for me by JB Aircraft. I met Jimmy at Sun n Fun a while back, and it was immediately clear to me that Jimmy and JB aircraft are “the real deal”.
I was aware of JB’s reputation from the many engines he has built for the aerobatic community. After talking to Jimmy and spending time at his shop and with his employees, I knew I had found where my airshow engine was coming from! Doing ground level airshow aerobatics, as well as flying long distances to get to the shows, requires a lot of confidence in your airplane and powerplant. As a matter of fact I have a show in the Bahamas coming up, and I have no qualms committing to far away shows or flying over water with Jimmy’s motor up front. Its clear that the good folks at JB have a passion for quality and take a lot of pride in their work – my engine is truly a mechanical “Mona Lisa” – I’m proud to display the JB Aircraft logo on my plane.
Another important factor is support – Jimmy stands behind his work and is always quick to answer questions or do whatever it takes. Jimmy built my engine on a handshake and Gentlemans agreement, and I have all the confidence in the world in him. JB Aircraft has been around a long time and enjoy a great reputation. I can’t recommend JB Aircraft enough, I suppose flying my Eagle with my AWESOME JB Aircraft engine is enough testimony! Feel free to contact me if you like, www.eagleairshow.com. Paul
