The company is using Honda L15-series car engines for their conversion to an aircraft application. These are not new but close and 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 dynometer testing combined with thousands of hours of infight testing.
Below you will find the installation and operations manual for the former Viking 110 engine.
