According to the Greek mythology, Orion was the most handsome and imposing of men. It is from this myth that the M-24 takes its name and position within the whole Magni Gyro line of models.
The M-24 Orion is a fully enclosed, side by side two seat, dual control model specially designed for those who do not want to go without comfort when having fun.
The external lines of the fuselage perfectly embody the famous Magni Gyro style. The enclosure design, the interior arrangement, and the large windscreen and side windows, offers excellent panoramic field of view. The large side doors provide easy access to the roomy cabin. The clean, un-cluttered, all-composite cabin design reflects the Magni reputation for elegant chromatic precision and meticulous attention in developing each feature. Large carbon fiber instrument panels provide a dynamic contrast to enhance the perception of the roomy cabin while providing a perfect backdrop for a large variety of available standard and available instruments. Efficient ventilation provides refreshing cabin cooling in the Summer and cabin heat in the cooler months. The M-24 Orion is equipped with two baggage compartments. The first compartment is “hidden” under the right seat cushion, the second on the outside allows the visual fuel level check.
The M24 is powered by the Rotax 914 turbo (115 HP) engine. The 21 gallon. fuel tank assures up to 4 hours of flight at a cruise speed between 90 and 105 mph. The M-24 Orion is the ideal gyro to enjoy all season flying fun.
