"Honda/Viking, tons better. Maintenance, is simple and cheap. Parts, you don't have to go to a Rotax service center. Local parts store for filters plugs gaskets.. Its 4 stroke fuel injected, no carbs to mess with. I'm extremely happy with mine, Factory support is awesome."
Engine Mounting Systems
Viking 90 Engine Cradle
The Viking 90 now features an aft cradle mount in order to properly adapt the engine to fit traditional tubular engine firewall mounts. It has three mounting height locations and bolts directly to the back of the engine. It will fit directly onto a Rotax firewall mount.
Rotax Engine Cradle
The Rotax 912 engine traditionally used a bed mount layout. It also now has an optional aft mounted cradle. Viking now has a similar system.

Viking Baggage Pod for the Zenith Super Duty
It's cool to have three seats and it's great to have a lot of fuel, but what about baggage for that long trip?
Viking has the answer. The Super Duty aircraft utilize a dropped down cowling to provide adequate engine cooling exit area.
The are behind the cowling is now utilized by the Viking baggage pod and also provide a smooth streamline look to the aircraft fuselage bottom.
We are looking forward to using the baggage pod when we fly to Zeniths Open House on September 21-22nd.
The First 10 Super Duty baggage pods / Fuselage streamlining kits now available.
The Viking Technical Corner
Honda offer great base engines for the 2018 Viking engine conversions.
