Sep 27th, 2016 - John Nealon's Highlander with a Viking Engine

Our September 27th meeting was at John Nealon's house in Wasilla to look at his Just Highlander project with a Viking engine. It has been covered with Stewart Systems.

John's plane is the Just Aircraft Highlander, not to be confused with the Just Aircraft SuperStol. The SuperStol is the model that places in the top 5 at the Valdez STOL competition. It's designed to make something more like an aircraft carrier style arrival than a landing. Nose way high, power on, when the tail wheel hits, cut the power.

John would like to put the Highlander on floats, where the STOL style arrivals are not recommended.

Just Highlander finished with Stewart System, HVLP sprayed in the garage. You can see part of the plastic spray booth and some of the red color on the floor. The triangular rear windows are a common change to the basic kit.

Just Highlander with mocked up control panel. This is a quick buld kit, and the wooden ribs came from the factory.

Viking Engine - Starts with a four cylinder inline engine from a "Honda Fit". Intake manifold above, cylinder heads facing you, muffler pointing straight down. It is liquid cooled, so the radiator is on the left, and there is another small radiator on the right for cabin heat, just like most cars.

Viking Engine - Top View black induction manifold. No carb, it's fuel injected, and there is a high pressure fuel pump in the tail. You can see the titanium firewall with a couple of different places marked where it might be trimmed.
