Find One of Over 500 Customers on the Map

 

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

    • Loren, I used the spring attachment to allow for explanation to prevent cracking ( we'll see). Saved two + lbs in weight overall. Sound is about the same.

  • Made cowling for my coolen radiator with exit louvers. Installed with piano hinges along sides for ease of removal during inspections.

    • Way too enclosed.  For optimal cooling we recommend to remove all of it.

    • As I fly off a desert strip I need to keep the rocks and debris for punchering the radiator core. I'll be doing startup testing and monitor the coolant temperature. Would like to see coolant temperature in the 190°f range.

    • Looks good Ronald.  You might consider closing off the back of the enclosure so all air is forced through the louvers.  In theory, the louvers will cause a low pressure area to pull hot air away from the radiator.  

    • Yes, the plan is to cover the back exit with duck tape during startup test. Also may make a exit louver, like a engine exit cowl during testing. Like to see coolant temperature in the 190°f range. 

    • We have done similar to our radiator enclosure, and will confirm next summer how effective it is.

    • By way, while our louvers are different than yours, we flew with and without the louvers, and there was no notable temperature differance.  

  • Replaceed Earthx batteries with Odyssey PC545 in the aft fuselage of my CH 701 float plane. See electrical schematic photo.3709343888?profile=RESIZE_930x
