HKS Challenger engine mount by Lost Hill Aviation and Quicksilver GT 400 aircraft engine mounts.

Since it's introduction into the light sport aircraft market the HKS engine has been steadily making a name for itself as a lightweight, reliable, replacement engine installation for many light sport aircraft owners.

A company that has helped the HKS find new aircraft installations is Lost Hill Aviation of Painton MO.

In 2004 Lost Hill entered the market by producing an HKS engine mount which allowed installation of the engine onto the Skystar Kitfox line of aircraft.

Since that time Lost Hill has designed mounts for the T Bird, the Rans S-4, and S-7. This year they unveiled mounts for the Quad City Challenger  light sport aircraft.

About 3 weeks before Airventure 2005 a customer who owned a 1996 model long wing Quad City Challenger approached Lost Hill to do an HKS engine mount for his craft.

The kit requires the main root rube to be shortened slightly to allow installation into the root tube of the engine mounting yoke. Also the rear spars have to be trimmed slightly. Lost Hill supplies all of the necessary components to upgrade to the HKS engine, including new aileron control arms, in their mounting kit plus concise information on the modifications necessary. The mounting kits mounts right up to the original Challenger root tube with just three bolts.

The HKS engine oil reservoir tank is located in the area directly in front of the engine under the wing, with access via an access panel. Lost Hill also moves the CDI unit, electrical system and fuel pump into this area.

The exhaust system and oil cooler are mounted under the engine. The HKS Challenger motor mount is available in kit form or can be installed at by Lost Hill at their location.

For customers just wanting the mount the kit sells for $600.00, if the mount is purchased with an engine from Lost Hill the price is $400.00

Lost Hill reports a cruise speed on the HKS Challenger of 75 mph at 5400 rpm. Climb rate is estimated to be in the 500 feet per minute range with a fuel burn of 2.5 gallons per hour.

Currently the company is working on HKS engine mounts for the Hornet and Rans 6 ES.
