Ya gotta hand to Viking... in an industry so VERY well dominated by Rotax, it takes some serious talent and extraordinary fortitude to take them on...
But Viking Aircraft Engines has done so... and is making serious headway. While there is a lot to recommend the concept, it is not lost on most sport aviation customers that a Viking Engine can cost as little as half of the price of a comparable Rotax LSA engine. Hence, the little engine that could is quickly becoming popular in the OEM market for many of the most popular aircraft, gyro and powered parachute companies.
The product of an experienced engine design team in Florida, the HF-110 engine shares moving parts with the Honda fit automobile, the Honda outboard marine engine and the Honda race engine. The engine has an estimated TBO of 2000 hrs, and powerplant installation kits are either available or being prepared for Jabiru Aircraft, CH-601 XL, CH-601 HD, CH-650, CH-750, CH-701, RV-12, Storch, IBIS MAGIC 700, SeaRey, Sonex, Savannah XL, the Morgan Aeroworks Cougar -- and a number of others.
The fully assembled engine comes with a 40A Alternator, Dual Engine controllers, Exhaust / Muffler, Air intake, K&N Filter, Starter, Radiator, Oil cooler, fuel pumps and an Engine mounting kit for your airplane.
