magniX announces Letter of Intent with Harbour Air for 50 magni650 electric engines

magniX today announced that Harbour Air, North America’s seaplane airline, has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to purchase 50 magni650 electric engines.  The company says that its electric propulsion units (EPUs) will be used to electrify Harbour Air’s fleet, beginning with the De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver in 2026. It says the magni650s will also be used for third-party conversions.

“The agreement is a milestone in electric aviation and a significant next step in the industry-leading partnership between magniX and Harbour Air” according to the press release. “In December 2019, the two companies made history when the eBeaver, a Harbour Air De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver retrofitted with a magniX electric engine, became the world’s first fully electric commercial aircraft to take flight. To date, the prototype eBeaver has flown 78 flights in preparation for the certification of the aircraft.

“magniX is pioneering electric aviation, having powered historic flights by five different aircraft. Alongside the eBeaver, these include Eviation’s all-electric commuter airplane, Alice, and the world’s largest hydrogen-electric aircraft, Universal Hydrogen’s retrofitted De Havilland Dash 8.”
