I was promised delivery in Oct 2011.
Oct 2011 came and went. Communications with Viking promised Dec 2011 delivery.
Dec 2011 came and went. More communications with Viking.Finally received engine in Feb 2012. Engine was incomplete. Missing items include: ECU computer, reduction gbox, oil cooler hoses, and radiator hoses.
I communicated again with Viking, was promised delivery of missing items in March 2012, then April 2012, Then was told they would ship last week (2 May2012). Today is 10 May 2012, still no parts.
The engine mount I received was built to an incorrect angle. This was returned to Viking. Corrected mount was shipped back promptly (within 2 weeks).
I believe in the product, am happy with the appearance of quality, and am still excited to have chosen this engine, but my project has been waiting on Viking for some time now.
I am tired of unfulfilled promises while I watch other aircraft on the Viking website installing what I believe are my parts.
