With over 32 years in Ultralight and Light Experimental aircraft propulsion
specialties we are delighted to consider the HKS-700E and 700T, our most important
powerplant yet. Since beginning the business, in 1984, we’ve been
in search of the right lightweight 4 stroke engine as an alternative to
popular 2 stroke counterparts. Until our involvement with HKS,
that search lead us only to engines that were too heavy, or short on performance.
In 2003, we installed our first HKS on the company’s Zippy
Sport. Though this is the ninth powerplant change on our aircraft
in twenty years, it is the first ever to deliver “peace of mind” High Performance.
Typical cruise is 110 to 115 mph. Throttled back to 100mph fuel burn of
2.5 gph works out to 40 Miles Per Gallon!
The HKS should be your engine of choice for retrofit on many existing
aircraft, and definitely new designs.
We’ve done conversions on Avid Flyer, Challenger, Dakota Hawk, Hiperlight, Fisher 404, Fisher
Super Koala, Kitfox, Kolb, Quicksilver, Rans S12, Rans S14, Zenith CH-701, and Zippy
Sport. The next(completed 2012)one scheduled for our “in-house” aircraft is our
Mong Biplane. We’ve consulted on many more.
Our in-house welding, machining and sheet metal capability lends itself
well to proto typing and special projects. Our clients range from individual
homebuilders to defense contractors. We make, or provide: Mounts, (both
aluminum plate and welded tube) Vibration Isolators, Custom Exhaust Systems,
Custom Control Cable, HACman Mixture Control, Oil Coolers, Oil line,
Oil Fittings, Propellors, and Instruments.
Perhaps, most important, is service. Our company has a long record
of excelling in
service, and has received repeated, superlative recognition in the
industry. …Best: Repair Station Program, Warranty Service, Technical Support,
Master Service Dealer, and more.
Your decision on where to buy is just as important as what to buy.
