Congratulations! That's a beautiful Viking. I too have always been found of them.
It's one of the few singles I haven't flown. I hope too someday.
Congrats!!! And welcome to the clan of owners - an emotional journey filled with elation, trepidation, dismay, agony, reconciliation and acceptance. And that's just from purchase through your first annual.
And remember, the corrosion inhibitor for a Viking has a unique part number. Quite different from those common Pipers and Cessnas cluttering the ramps.
Major congratulations from someone hoping to own soon.
How long have you been flying?

Congratulations on acquiring an excellent aircraft!
Congrats,good looking airplane
and what was that initial premium quote, if you remember?
I got quotes all over the place! I had one well known, large company, who shall remain nameless (cough, cough, Avemco, cough), that gave me a quote of $7000!! I ended up around 2500.
Yea I got a couple over 3k... got one from AOPA for 1900 with 10hrs dual...
Pictures uploaded. Sorry it took forever. I had a few snafus.
Nice. Always liked the Viking. Bill Cox does a good review on them in Wonderful World of Flying series.
Bill Cox's old review from 1991 is a standard. I still watch that video. If not for that groovy soundtrack, it's got to be the humor. 'Oh look at my bellanca tail dragger. And for reasons beyond my comprehension, i still own it.. Just what a pilot needs, two planes to take care of.' HAHA
Yeah I still watch those old reviews too. Nowadays it’s hard to see a decent video review on an airplane.
I stopped watching them on youtube because they generally suck. Though, i like the series of videos where they discuss cost of ownership for different planes and models with the actual owners. Woke me up to the impracticalities of owning a twin cessna 414. oh hell no.
Congrats! I’m 7months into ownership... I have found learning to be a good owner there is more to learn than how to fly the contraption to begin with, it brings a whole new aspect of flying...
Congrats and welcome to the club. Very soon flushing 100$ bills down the toilet will feel refreshing
Even though I'm not a pilot yet, I have enjoyed watching Flying Doodles plane reviews. He lets the owners talk quite at length about their planes, then he goes flying with them. I've learned a decent amount about some of the different planes through him.
Don't you mean "flushing stacks of $100 bills...?
let's get to the heart of the matter. While Deschutes is great, you're living in the land of Russian River beer!!!! Why aren't you sneaking out pints of pliny to your friends in Oregon inexchange for some Deschutes and Pfriem?
Also, nice plane
