  • Received Airworthiness Certificate & Repairman's Certificate from FAA. Looking forward to doing flight testing with the Viking 110 engine. I expect good power demonstrated so far from doing the taxiing tests.

    • Congratulations Stephen. Nice looking airplane. Have fun.

       

    • Looks great Stephen! Keep us updated!

    I have a 110 in my CH701. It's the smoothest running engine I've ever flown behind with the exception of turbines. I've had excellent results with Jan and Samantha in response to questions and parts even though they were in the middle of fending off a hurricane one time. I live wayyyy out of town in the Texas hill country and mail/UPS/Fedex delivery can be iffy and yet they still get it to me.

    I love the 110, plenty of power and at cruise I burn 4.4 gph.

  • I was pleased to read of others behind the Viking aircraft engines and see pictures of the processes and people.

    Yesterday I put another hour on my Viking 110 in local flying in the beautiful northwest. I now have 80.5 hours and hope to keep adding time and fun. My Zenith stol 750 flies wonderfully with plenty of power for a 71 yo pilot. My friends with Rotax engines spend much more time and money “fussing” with their much more expensive engines. Rotax is “good” but so far, Viking is better.

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.

"Mike, The Viking View had been programmed/set up incorrectly at Viking.  I called Jan, explained what was going on.  He said it was progammed incorrectly.  We sent it back and got a new one.  All fine since.  We also added a cool little optical tach that counts prop rotations! - Bill"

Patrick Hoyt replied to Glenn Davis's discussion Zenith ch650 engine
"Hey Steve. I put some performance numbers out on zenith.aero a while back. My airplane is an XL with a 650 canopy. About 210 hours on the airframe, and about 30 hours on my V130 engine.

I haven't calculated my fuel burn yet, but it's pretty good. I've always "planned" on an 8gph fuel burn, but it's way better than that.

Putting that engine on my airplane can only be described as "totally transformative". It turned my airplane into something totally different than it was before. Can google "N63PZ" for lots of info on my plane.

I live on a residential airpark near Fort Worth, TX if you (or anyone) wants to come take a look.

Am building another airplane (Wittman Tailwind), and am seriously considering a V180 for that one."

Has anyone put a Viking engine on a Van's RV-7 model?  Interested in the outcome, performance and obstacles.  Traditionally they only use Lycoming type engines.  Very curious about a Van's/Viking combo.  Please weigh in here if you can.Thanks!

Steve Kanotz replied to Glenn Davis's discussion Zenith ch650 engine
"Any Specs available yet for the Zenith CH650 with the Viking 130 engine on it? I have been searching but can. It find anything yet. Was curious of cruise speed and fuel burn. The Zenith website has specs with a 116 hp. Also the question above refers to a 150 model. Is that meant to be the turbo 180hp?"
