Viking Aircraft Engines is using Honda L15-series car engines for their conversion to an experimental aircraft application. You may buy them new from Honda but most customers opt for used engines that have been used in cars for less than 6 months or 5000 miles. After they leave the Viking factory assembly line they can be considered as a rebuilt/new aircraft engine.
The result is an engine with the latest technology for the lowest price available. The fuel economy is world class; the power to weight ratio is superb. The quality of the engines is as good as Honda gets it and to ensure reliability, Viking performs dynamometers testing combined with thousands of hours of in fight testing.
Honda builds these engines in thousands per year (unlike other aircraft engine manufacturers) with enough parts readily available and, more important: for a reasonable price. This guarantees the customer benefits from the absolute latest in engine technology for the best price.
The Viking 130 is as close to a Honda Fit (called Jazz in some parts of the world) car engine as possible, retaining all of its modern features. The cooling system is run with Evans liquid cooling without a pressure system and the engines are run at 66 % of the rated RPM as designed by Honda.
One of the main advantages of this engine is its low weight to power ratio compared to other engines in the market today. The fuel injection system is a GDI, gasoline direct injection. This is much like the system used in a diesel engine where fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber.
Normal gasoline fuel injection systems inject fuel just before the intake port, Rotax iS and UL Power are a good example of engines using this principle.
The Viking Company Zenith CruZer is faster than any other flying at 126 kts / 154 mph TAS @ 8500 ft DA. It also has the shortest take off roll of any CruZer. In fact, the airplane is so powerful; it can take off much shorter than a full fledged CH-750 STOL airplane.
Some of the advantages of a Viking aircraft engine are:
*Viking has a one year unconditional return policy for refund or exchange
*The 2016 Honda Fit engine manual covers all engine specifics in great detail
*The engines are Evans liquid cooled without pressure, no leaks or possible boiling
*The engines run at only at 2/3 Honda rated RPM
*The 130 is a perfect weight for the Zenith and a host of other experimental aircraft
*Engines are ready to bolt to the airplane as shipped
*Cowling, engine mount and propeller available along with all other accessories
*The 130 will outperform all other engines with 600 lb of thrust
*An inline 4 cylinder engine is not complicated, rather simplicity itself
*The Viking has no separate external exhaust pipes, just a single muffler
*No baffles required to direct cooling air over cylinders
*All parts are available from Honda or Viking
*Over 3600 reduction drive gear parts in stock, including 2700 gears
*No complicated fuel return system needed
*Worlds only GDI (gasoline direct injected) aircraft engine
*The oil system is included within the engine, no external hoses or cooler
*An unbelievably smooth running engine, your airframe and avionics will love you for that!
Viking engines are used and flown in a large number of aircraft ranging from Just Aircraft, Cessna, RANS, Vans RV-12 to the Zenith Aircraft CH650 and CruZer to name but a few.
