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.

Very nice

Installed a Viking 130 in our Zenith CH 750 STOL - First flight was 15 December 2017.  Based at 2W6, St. Mary's county, Maryland.  No problems!

moab, ut


Went mountain biking in Moab, always wanted to go back. Maybe when mine is done I can fly up for a visit. Congrats on how far you have come so far!!!


i came to moab 20 years ago.  gave up engineering to be a mountain bike guide. never looked back, never regretted the move.  canyonlands and arches national parks and the best uninhabited public land and glorious canyons to fly in/over.  i would love to host a zenith oriented fly-in and meet all Y'all.  you are welcome anytime!  


Well I was in the Air Force in 1993 - 1998. We went to Moab in 1997. Small world. We spent a week there, I will always remember those days. We might have been on the trails at the same time...

I have a 130 ready to go into the 650 I'm building - N394TW. I hope to fly it this Summer (2108).  No airport for it yet but it will be somewhere in St. Louis - Hopefully Creve Coeur - 1H0.

Call my friend at Festus airport  636 - 448-6648

Thanks Jan. Festus is an hour away (I'm on the far West side of St. Louis) but I'll call if nothing else close becomes available when I'm ready.

- Jim


Nice, look forward to hearing and maybe even seeing it fly. Hope I get me 130 sooner than later. Running out of things to work on...not...
