magniX Is Leading This Change

History tells us that advances in propulsion drive revolutions in aviation. After the piston engine and jet engine, the electric motor promises to usher in a new age of flight. With significantly reduced operating costs, electric aircraft will change the economics of travel – as well as eliminate carbon emissions. With magniX propulsion technology now showing a proven capacity to power a range of different aircraft, we offer a glimpse into how the electric era begins. We are exploring all applications for electric technologies in the aviation industry, seeking to accelerate the world’s transition to electric flight.

Our Journey

magniX is built on the cornerstones of people, passion, and possibility. Our story began on the Gold Coast of Australia in 2005, where a lean start-up focused on permanent magnet motors and superconducting technologies, developing a groundbreaking electric propulsion unit. In 2017, we arrived at a major inflection point. How could the technological discovery be translated into a product that would make a large-scale impact on customers, connecting communities sustainably and affordably? It was a turning point that saw us rebrand as magniX, and our mission turn to leading the development of propulsion for the electric aviation age.
