The very to ultra high energy gamma-ray regime up to several 100 TeV is the key to spectrally resolve the cutoff regime of the long-sought Pevatrons, the Galactic cosmic-ray PeV accelerators. One component of the TAIGA hybrid detector is the TAIGA-HiSCORE shower-front sampling timing array, which currently consists of 28 wide angle (0.6\,sr) air Cherenkov timing stations distributed on an area of 0.25 km$^{2}$, and which will be doubled in area by fall 2017.
We report on the status and first results of the HiSCORE timing array after the first 2 operation seasons, including calibration studies on timing and pointing, cross calibration with data from the first TAIGA-IACT, observations with the timing array of a LIDAR operating on the ISS, a measurement of the Cosmic Ray spectrum, and a systematic search for high energy gamma-rays from Galactic sources such as the Crab.
