Viking Aircraft Inc. was an American aircraft manufacturer based in Panama City Beach, Florida. The company specialized in the design and manufacture of powered parachutes in the form of ready-to-fly aircraft in the US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles and the European Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight categories.[1]

The company is often confused with Viking Aircraft LLC, which was also once known as Viking Aircraft Inc.[2][3]

The company seems to have been founded about 2000 and went out of business in 2005.[4]

Viking Aircraft Inc. produced one product, the Viking Aircraft Viking II of which at least six examples were produced. The company also sold a single-seat version of the design, which they referred to as "the single-place".[1][5]
