Explorer Aircraft and magniX sign propulsion agreement
Monday, 27 September 2021

Explorer Aircraft and magniX have signed a memorandum of understanding for the provision of the electric propulsion for a new electric hybrid light-utility aircraft.

Explorer Aircraft is developing the next generation high efficiency utility aircraft, designed by award winning engineers Graham Swannell and John Roncz. The aircraft will play an important role in replacing the tens of thousands of more than half century old utility aircraft still in service all over the world.

"Explorer Aircraft is thrilled to have magniX, the leading electric aircraft propulsion manufacturer, on board the Explorer Program." said CEO Bryan Lynch. "No one else has done as much to push the profile and reality of electric aircraft in our industry."

Bryan continued, "It is critical that we work together to develop a viable replacement for the thousands of obsolete, inefficient aircraft in service all over the world. This is only possible working together with the best, leading-edge suppliers. magniX is a perfect fit for us."

"We are thrilled to be powering the next generation of utility aircraft," said Roei Ganzarski, CEO of magniX. "The new Explorer aircraft offers operators a real path to cleaner flying be it for passengers or cargo."

Bryan Lynch continued, "Explorer Aircraft are developing the only aircraft designed for powerplant options, (battery, electric hybrid, fuel cell) and future autonomous flight systems. Through a combination of high efficiency aerodynamics, composite materials technology and inclusion of leading technology suppliers and developers in the design process we are future-proofing our aircraft."

"Through a holistic approach of high efficiency and integration of latest and future technology we give ourselves the ability to indefinitely reuse high value aircraft products. We can reduce our impact on the environment and help in the fight against climate change."

magniX has a strong and inclusive identity, covering not just their commercial goals but also the spirit of the people and community they form together. The aviation industry must reinvent itself by offering greater flexibility and little or no emissions. magniX is leading that change.

Explorer Aircraft is dedicated to creating the next generation, low impact, utility aircraft.
