M24Magni Gyro played hosts to Phil, Steve and Kati from The Gyrocopter Experience on 22nd to 24th January 2010 at their factory and head office in Milan, Italy.  Highlight of the tour was flying in their flagship gyro the M24. 

The M24 is a fully enclosed, side by side gyro, running on a Rotax 914 engine. There are currently nearly 40 of these machines flying around Europe and certification to fly in the UK is expected early summer 2010. A number of orders have already been received from the UK.

The weekend also included type conversion training on the M16C open cockpit tandem gyro.  The pedigree of the M16C dates back to its predecessor, the VPM M16, first supplied to the UK nearly 20 years ago and used by many instructors since that time. There are 4 M16C machines being delivered to the UK within the next 4 weeks, bringing the total to 6 since they achieved their Section T certification at the end of last year.

So, what did we think of the M24? Pictured is Steve getting out of the cockpit and everything about it is summed up on his "Gyrocopter Grin".
