  • Our first start - Viking 130 - Zenith CH 750 STOL

    We started our Viking 130 for the first time yesterday, Saturday, 28 May 2017.  It started and idled a little over 1200 rpm (1240-1258) so we backed it down a bit.  We let the coolant temp reach 200 while we tested running on the alternator (no batteries) and the batteries (no alternator), one fuel pump, then the other, etc.  Itcould not have gone much better!

  • Is this the way the steel bungee should look?

    I can use the center rod to compress the spring enough to get  bolts on the side straps but I have to compress it 35 mm.

    • That will be fine.  Need about that much to keep the nose up anyhow.  

  • The Vikings did discover Alaska. Bunch of pilots together in Anchorage. One Lycoming, a broken Continental and a couple of Rotaxes. The rest - ALL VIKING ENGINES

  • Have you done enough development to have dimensions and weights for the 1.0L turbo?

    • It is too early.  We know we will do this engine when available but it is not available yet.

  • I found it on Loren Warner's build page from Alaska, what do you know?

Hi folks.I had a cracked muffler on my 110 engine after 50 hours of operation and soldered it back over the crack. Anyone else of the Viking 110 guys had this issue?

"Loren, as Jan replied, I actually need to call Samantha and verify whether the latest update was completed on our ECU. (It was updated (SW flashed) in late November/early December.

Good luck on your upcoming engine start. I hope it goes as well as…"

Jan and all of Viking,
I simply can not resist a smile every time I start up the 110! I am always impressed with the start up, smoothness, sound and feel! Can't say enough about it! If there is ever anyone out my way (Denver) that wants to take a look let me know! Anyone out there considering a Viking, stop thinking and jump right in!!
