  • What's the applicability for the Gearbox Vent update shown in the video?

    • Anyone that has oil going into the canister/bottle. It gets rid of the catch tank and vents into the atmosphere. -Alissa

    • Just added the new vent to my V-130.

      removed the tank, hose, Adel clamps, etc.  super simple.  Saved 1.3#

      suggestion.  Make a drill template to locate the hole on the back side of the gear box.  Then clamp in place to drill hole with a 90 degree drill tool.  Works great and easy to do

    • Just to clarify, what you call the canister/bottle, is this the new round aluminum canister Viking has been providing, or does it include the plastic reservoir we currently have for filling and venting the gearbox?

    • Loren, I just put this vent in my 130. You can remove the tank and lines and plug those holes. Makes that area a lot cleaner and gearbox only takes 6 oz gear oil. Haven’t been able to run it yet due to the big snow here in North Carolina but really like how it looks. 

    • No external tank of any type needed.  Vents directly to the atmosphere

  • Looking for anyone flying a Kitfox w/ the Viking 130

    ...and excited to get my new Viking 130 installed this winter!

VIKING 130 OR CONTINENTAL 0-200

When you install an O-200 engine, or a Viking 130 aircraft engine, the weight of the aircraft will be about the same.

HOWEVER

  • You will have 30 more HP and close to 100% more static thrust.  
  • You will have a 2018 model Honda, usually built in America - not a 1945 design now sold to China
  • You will have 5,000 Honda dealerships from where you can get parts.  
  • You will have DIRECT, into the cylinders, fuel injection.  No carburetor anywhere
  • You will pay much less for much more.
