I recently watched the Webinar — The Traveling Toolkit by Mike Busch and thought we could create a list of tools / spare parts specific to the Viking engine that would be prudent to carry particularly on long remote flights — think week-long trips in the Alaskan wilderness. What would be on your must-have and nice-to-have lists?
