According to mythology, Orion was the most handsome and imposing of men and it is from this myth that the M24 takes its name and position within the Magni Gyro range. The M24 Orion is a fully enclosed, side-by-side two-seat, dual control model specially designed for those who want to feel comfortable while having fun.
The Magni M24 is the first enclosed side-by-side two-seat factory built gyroplane fully approved under BCAR Section T, the UK CAA’s approval standard for gyroplanes. Further certifications and homologations have been obtained in other countries.
The external lines of the fuselage perfectly embody the grace and flair of the Magni Gyro style. The design, its internal layout and the high quality materials used for the windscreen and the door transparencies offer a tremendous panoramic view. The cabin layout reflects the company’s values and attention to detail. The use of high-quality materials and elegant colour combinations reflect the meticulous care taken over developing each of the aircraft’s features. The black carbon-fibre instrument panel gives a dynamic colour-contrast, which enhances the perception of interior space and provides a perfect background to ensure that he instruments and avionics are easily readable. The M24 Orion is equipped with three easily accessible baggage compartments. The 82lt capacity of the fuel tank allows flights of up to four hours at a cruise speed of 120-150km/h (75 to 95mph). With its cabin heating system the M24 is perfect on cold winter days! The Orion can even operate off snow-covered surfaces using the optional easy-to-install skis.
