Kestrel Selects Lord Corporation for Engine Mount Solution
Kestrel Aircraft selected the LORD Corporation LM-849 engine mount system for its all-composite business jet.
LORD said it will be able to meet Kestrel’s production schedule, as the company is currently in the design and FAA certification stage with its single-engine turboprop aircraft.
“We were chosen based on customer confidence in our existing low-profile LM-849 engine mount system that was originally designed and developed for the Piper Cheyenne 400 aircraft,” said Jesse DePriest, customer manager at LORD Corporation. “Our mounts offer a proven design with a low-profile that offers excellent engine vibration isolation and streamlined cowl design.”
