The next generation in regional aviation is here. In September 2022, Eviation’s all-electric aircraft, the Alice, successfully completed its first test flight, powered by 2 magniX magni650 electric propulsion units. The world’s first all-electric commuter plane (9-seater plus 2 crew), the Alice is a product of “clean sheet” design – built from the ground up around the electric propulsion.

magniX Reaches New Milestone in NASA’s Electric Powertrain Flight Demonstration Program play
magniX Reaches New Milestone in NASA’s Electric Powertrain Flight Demonstration Program 5 March 2024

As part of NASA’s Electric Powertrain Flight Demonstration (EPFD) program, a magni650 electric engine began tests in altitude conditions at the NASA Glenn Research Center's NEAT facility.

This is an important milestone in the program as it will provide valuable data on how magniX’s flight-proven engines perform under different conditions. The magni650 engine will be tested at simulated altitudes of up to 25-thousand feet, another step forward in revolutionizing air travel.

2023: a Banner Year for magniX play
2023: a Banner Year for magniX 17 December 2023

2023 marked another year of record-setting achievements for magniX. A magniX electric propulsion unit (EPU) propelled the maiden flight of the world’s largest hydrogen fuel cell airplane. Subsequent flights set records for the highest and longest electric flights to date. With these flights, magniX became the only company to have powered five pioneering flights by five different aircraft.

Also in 2023, magniX delivered a magni650 EPU to the NASA Electric Aviation Testbed (NEAT) facility as part of the Electric Powertrain Flight Demonstration Program (EPFD) to advance electric aviation, a significant milestone in the agency’s EPFD program.

magniX Powers First Flight of the World’s Largest Hydrogen Fuel Cell Airplane 02 March 2023

A DHC8-Q300, converted by Universal Hydrogen, successfully completed its first flight, becoming the world’s largest flight-tested hydrogen electric airplane. A magni650 electric propulsion unit, provided with electricity by a hydrogen fuel cell system, was used to replace one of the airplane's two conventional turboprop engines.

magniX Powers Eviation's All-Electric Alice Aircraft for Historic First Flight 27 September 2022

The Eviation Alice successfully completed its inaugural flight, marking a historic milestone in aviation — a world first for a "clean sheet design" all-electric commuter plane, built from the ground up around the electric propulsion system. Alice is powered by two magniX magni650 Electric Propulsion Units (EPUs) that are the only flight-proven electric propulsion systems at this scale.
