Just wanted to thank everyone at Viking. I began my first aircraft build two years and four months ago by ordering a Viking 130 engine and a ICP Savannah S aircraft kit. Yesterday I got the airworthiness certificate. Let me just say that the engine installation part of the process was straight forward and easily done with all the support I received from Viking. That thing starts every time with just a touch on the starter, has no vibration and sounds awesome. If you are in the market for an engine you cannot go wrong with Viking.
We have introduced a map to enable builders and flyers to see where other Viking customers are in relation to each other. If you see an area you would like to contact a customer and reach out to contact Alissa@VikingAircraftEngines.com for more information.
N750TD, a CH-750 STOL with a few mods and a Viking 130, passed FAA inspection on Tuesday July 2nd, and made its maiden voyage yesterday (Saturday July 6th) – THANKS to your help and guidance all along the way. It only flew about 5 miles from the 900’ runway at my house (where is was built over the past 7 years) to the nearby airport 47Y (Pelican Rapids, MN) for initial testing where there is a longer runway, etc. It DID fly nice – leaving Mother Earth in about 7 seconds – without even trying! I kept the RPMs low en route to the airport – around 3500 RPMs. I just didn’t want to push ANYTHING on the first flight.
Now the fun starts.
I will bore you with the details and video later – for now I will THANK YOU for making an EXCELLENT product, providing EXCELLENT customer support, and wish you a GREAT day. I just wanted you to be aware Zenith now has a CH-750 with conventional gear with YOUR engine in it, and the first 10 minutes of flight felt very good – even without the cowling on! You have obviously created an excellent power plant and propeller combination and many of us applaud your efforts – and I wanted to personally THANK YOU for them.
I look forward to seeing you in Oshkosh
