Congrats! My Cruzer just got the airworthiness cert on Saturday, so I'm really interested in your success. I too have the Viking 130 and the same paint scheme as your photo. I'm getting myself ready for that 1st flight. I suspect the Cruzer has been out long enough that they are really starting to come out of the building pipeline now.
