Hey fellow Builders & Fliers,

Who all has a Viking 130....?  Which airframe...?  Where are you based...? 

I am installing a Viking 130 as part of a rebuild of my Zodiac.  I'm based at Bourland Field, which is southwest of Ft Worth, Texas.

I have a Viking 130 that is not yet hung on my 601xlb project. Will start to install it very soon. I am in Blakely, Ga. and watching your progress. How did you vent your mini header tank?

Our STOL 750 with Viking 130 should be airborne this summer. https://www.facebook.com/Experimental750ES/  We're in Anchorage, Alaska.

Have 85 hours 0n my Viking 130 powered 601 xlb and it is hangared at Gimlin airport 18MO near Ozark, MO, Always open for a visit at hangar #9. Gathering data to decide to ipaint or wrap the old girl.

Hi Patrick;

sorry; not using a Viking nor a 601, but just wanted to say that I’m up in NRH building a Cruzer. 

Always good to to find other local builders. 

Hi Patrick,  Have the earlier Viking 110. Should have the engine running in Feb. I just got my ECU upgraded with new software by Jan. Also adding the reinforcement for alternator pivot bolt and 5/8"ID oil inlet hose. I realize that none of these mods apply to the 130.

Best Regards,  Larry Zepp

Fort Wayne, IN

Interested in the 110 for my CH701....not much info on the Viking website.....what is installed weight....price...etc ? 

email Samantha@vikingaircraftengines.com

She can probably answer all those questions in 1 email, assuming she still works there.



My 750 cruzer is in the finishing stage.  I think that means it is only 10% complete.  I have a Viking 130 installed, but I have not yet wired anything.  It is still nice to look at!

I've got a Viking 110 in my 601 XLB with about 40 hobbs hours on it and could not be happier with it.

I added a shared spreadsheet for Engine Experience etc.

Please update it with your Viking Experience also. Thanks. Link provided below.


I will be keeping an eye on this one. I plan to purchase the viking once I pay off the cost of getting my Private Pilot cert.

Patrick, I am in Central Texas probably 2 hours from you. I might visit you sometime to check out your setup, if that's cool? I visit my sister in Murphy Texas frequently. My brother-in-law is cleaning up my 1966 Chevy Corvair, but no I decided not to go Corvair...

I am building a Cruzer and have the Viking 130 hung, plumbed, and wired.  I have started it a few times.  Should be flying this summer.  I'm building in Garfield, Arkansas and will base in Rogers, AR (KROG).  My build log is at http://www.mykitlog.com/sbray72732
