Ken contacted Viking several months ago in regards to his wish to construct a larger version of the popular Kitfox/Just Aircraft style airplane. He wanted something for two full size pilots to comfortably sit. He is currently sizing his aircraft based on the Viking 110. He is making great progress as you can see in the pictures.
"I said that I would keep you updated on my progress because at first I was progressing rather quickly and this project wouldn’t be boring to watch but my help all left me in January. Then I was hoping to at least have the engine running by our fly-in because a lot of people around are interested in the Viking engine and want to see and hear it run. Well I had to organize the Fly-in, it’s at my place, and I had little help with that either so I didn’t get much done on the airplane, but that's over with now so I can now get back to work on it. When you install an alternate engine and have to make a special engine mount and build a special cowl for it, that's a significant portion of the whole plane and the rest is easy. The vice president of our chapter is going to Oshkosh this year and he is interested in the Viking engine so I hope that you can give him some info to bring back to share with our chapter. Here are some pictures to show where I’m at now, I think that this will be a good looking airplane."
