We have introduced a map to enable builders and flyers to see where other Viking customers are in relation to eachother. It is a work in progress and we are still continuing to add names daily. If you see an area you would like to contact a customer and reach out to contact Alissa@VikingAircraftEngines.com for more information.

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.

NEW! Every Viking Customer has their own page on our website to showcase their aircraft which will also coincide with the map. If you want your aircraft displayed, please send me in some pictures at Alissa@Vikingaircraftengines.com

  • Is anyone flying an 801 with the steel bungee? 

    • Hi Chuck. Yes, I put a steel bungee on my 801. Haven't flown it yet, but did a lot of taxiing and it seemed to work fine. Compresses about an inch, and has another 3 inches of travel.

      The inner diameter of the tube seemed to be a little tight and had to grind a little to get it to fit.

    • Thanks Eric,

      I started my 801 in 2008. I’m getting close to finishing it now and my original bungee is sagging. I would rather change it for a spring than buy a bungee that I’ll have to change every year.  I just wanted to make sure the Viking spring will hold the 801 weight.

    • Chane, sorry, I misread your name.

      I did some experiments with the coil spring, compressed it with a hydraulic press on a scale until I didn't dare compress any more.

      Viking steel bungee spring compression rate

      spring length     force total     compression
      10.5 inches 0 lbs full extension
      10 inches 100 lbs .5 inches
      9.25 inches 200 lbs 1.25 inches
      8.75 inches 300 lbs 1.75 inches
      8.5 inches 350 lbs 2.00 inches
      8.25 inches 400 lbs 2.25 inches

      Once the engine was installed, it compressed about an inch. Weight on the nose wheel is about 350 lbs. It didn't compress a full 2 inches like the chart said it would.

  • Curious, has anyone put a Viking 90 install ona Challenger II type aircraft?  Would seem far less costly than the ROTAX 582 system.

    • Has been done on similar aircraft like tyhe Hawk and Rans S-12

  • Hi all, Anyone interested in a Sensenich 2-blade prop for the Viking 110? I've got one and a 13" spinner to go with it.

  • Installing firewall pass throughs in my Zenith Zodiac for my Viking 110. I got some good ideas from RV builders and TIG welded these using 4130. The two piece split one covers the rectangular slot for the ECM connector. Larry Zepp, Zenith Zodiac N22LZ, Fort Wayne, IN
