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.

Have you gotten your plane in the air? I just bought the ch650 and was looking into the Viking 130 for it but would love some feedback on your plane and how it performs. I also live in the st louis area.

Hey Ron, 

We have A LOT of people in Missouri, if you have any questions reach out to me at Alissa@vikingaircraftengines.com. I have plenty of people you can contact directly as well. -Alissa

I have a Viking 130 mounted on 750 Cruzer I hope to fly later this year. I am just east of Seattle.

I have a Viking 130 in a Zenith Ch-750 Cruzer in Tavares, Florida  (FA83)

I have a Viking 130 installed on a CH-601xlb with 102 flight hours on it. It is in hangar #9 at Gimlin airport (18MO) near Ozark, Missouri. Stop by any time to talk airplanes and go for a ride.

We have been flying our CH-750 STOL for over a year now. No issues with the Viking 130.

We just grin when we hear other small aircraft engines struggling to start and keep running in the cold weather when our starts right up and sounds great!
