Italian gyrocopter company Magni was going to launch a brand new, clean-sheet design aircraft at AERO Friedrichshafen next week but with the event cancelled, all we have so far is the video (below) of the new Magni M26.
Few facts have been released other than the M26 is built around Rotax’s new engine, the 141hp 915iS. It’s a two-seater with luggage space and a fully enclosed cabin.
Magni already has experience with the Rotax 915iS, fitting it to the existing M16 (tandem open cockpit) and M24 (side by side closed cockpit) gyrocopters.
The first M24 Plus models for the UK have been completed and are awaiting delivery once the Coronavirus restrictions are lifted.
We are proud to present the first two #M24PLUS ready for delivery in Great Britain!
