The Viking SF-2A Cygnet, also called the Sisler SF-2A Cygnet and the HAPI SF-2A Cygnet, is an American STOL amateur-built aircraft, designed by Bert Sisler and produced by Viking Aircraft LLC. The aircraft is supplied in the form of plans for amateur construction. The Cygnet first flew in 1973.
The SF-2A Cygnet is a development of the earlier Sisler SF-2 Whistler introduced in 1973. The design features a strut-braced shoulder-wing, a two-seats-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed conventional landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.
The aircraft is made from wood, 4130 steel tubing and covered in doped aircraft fabric. Its 30 ft (9.1 m) span wing employs a NACA 3413 airfoil, has an area of 125 sq ft (11.6 m2) and is supported by a single strut with a jury strut. The cockpit is 39 in (99 cm) wide and has a baggage compartment with a limit of 70 lb (32 kg), located behind the seats.
In a 2020 review, AVweb writer Paul Dye concluded, “Flying a piece of history (and with a forward swept wing, something fairly unique!) is always fun. Just like all strange meat gets described as “tasting like chicken”, it is easy to describe airplanes like this as flying “like a Cub”—and it’s true, in the sense that it is well-mannered and easy to steer around the sky. Yes, that visibility at the start of a turn is going to take a little getting used to, as is the landing attitude. But if you take the time to get it figured out, the Cygnet is a nice little airplane with a Midwest tradition. Honest, straightforward, and enjoyable.
