Heater control

As I’m about to install the Viking heater kit in my 750 Cruzer and coming off a fairly hot summer, I’m concerned about the amount of heat added to the cockpit through the heater core even without the fan(s) turned on in addition to the heating of…

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

 

Just wanted to thank everyone at Viking.  I began my first aircraft build two years and four months ago by ordering a Viking 130 engine and a ICP Savannah S aircraft kit.  Yesterday I got the airworthiness certificate.  Let me just say that the engine installation part of the process was straight forward and easily done with all the support I received from Viking.  I’ve only got 6.4 hours on the aircraft so far but I can already say my engine choice was a good one.  That thing starts every time with just a touch on the starter, has no vibration and sounds awesome.  If you are in the market for an engine you cannot go wrong with Viking.  Contact me any time and I will be happy to share my experience with you.  Thanks again Jan, Alissa and everyone else at Viking.  “When” I build my next aircraft I will be calling you for the engine.

  • RV 12 Ready to fly, The smiles are genuine. Aircraft passed with no deficiencies. One of the great services you provide is listening with interest to our relentless bragging about our aircraft. Thanks for being great listeners. Plane is ready to fly once it goes back together. All features are in the green, including weight and balance, static RPM's, engine monitoring, etc. Control surfaces are free and functioning. The first flight in the next few weeks. I'll keep you posted. My sincere gratitude for all the support you've given. I feel you are a power plant home ,not just and engine vendor. Keep you posted, Jim3668204138?profile=RESIZE_930x

  • My CH 701 fuel schematic  for my Viking 130.3640325775?profile=RESIZE_930x

    • Ronald, did you already install the fuel system as shown in the schematic, or asking a question?  

    • It's  installed an under test with a temporary fuel supply as the wings are not installed at this time Loren.

    • Is this a new build, or just replacing the engine?  While it looks as if your fuel system would work fine, I'm surprised you're not installing a Viking header tank with integral fuel pumps.

    • Its a new build (701, Zenair floats). Viking F/W/F, fuel kit, two header tanks with pumps, manifold, barb fittings, check valves, bleeder fitting, and fuel hose supplied by Viking. Aluminum tubing with AN-6 D nuts a sleeves flared from the fuel tanks to a SPRL fuel valve (fuel and return). Installed a fine filter with pressure sensor and AN 6 D fittings. The home run hose ( supplied  by Viking) from the filter to the mechanical fuel pump has Phenix AN 6 D fitting with VIton O-Ring seal and hose barb. Thanks for your interest Loren.

    • Ok, now I get it.  I didn't realise those were the small header tanks w/integral fuel pumps.  Makes more sense to me now.  Bob Jones has the only 701 in our area, that I can think of, flying around on floats and skis.  

  • Working on the cowling for my CH 701 amphibian this week.3635565801?profile=RESIZE_930x

  • are the fuel pumps on the header tanks the same high pressure pumps used to fuel the whole system, or do you need more pumps ?

     

    • If you're talking about the Viking 130, the pumps at the header tank push fuel at around 42 psi to the high pressure pump (attached to the engine), which then boosts the pressure as high as 2,200psi.
