Bellanca 17-31 Super Viking



A development of the Cruisemaster, the Viking wing is made of Sitka spruce and mahogany, crafted in a separate wing plant. The fuselage is welded steel tubing covered with Dacron. It is all as durable as aluminum, and Bellanca feels that this unique method of construction is one of their major assets.


Bellanca 260
The Bellanca 260 was introduced in 1964 and produced through 1967. Built of wood and fabric, only 105 were built before production switched entirely to the Viking 300.

In 1967, a 300-hp Continental IO-520-D installation transformed the Bellanca Model 14 design into a Viking. Somewhere along the way, Vikings become Models 17-30A, but the overall aerodynamic design is true to the genius of Giuseppe Bellanca.


Viking 300

There are three 300-hp engine options for the Viking: a Continental IO-520-K, a Lycoming IO-540-K1E5 and the Ra-jay-turbocharged version of the Lycoming. The Viking is 3,325 pounds at gross, with an empty weight of 2,225 pounds. When a Viking is topped with 450 pounds of fuel, 75 pounds of options and 340 pounds of people, it's easy to see how most of the 1,100-pound useful load can quickly disappear. The baggage compartment capaci-ty is billed as 186 pounds, although it looks too small for what that weight of luggage would amount to. There is also a tube-like container running back from the baggage area toward the tail that is designed to hold 20 pounds of long equipment, such as skis or fishing poles.

Developed from the Model 14-19 Cruisemaster, with single sweptback fin and rudder replacing original tail unit.
