Nairobi’s Wilson Airport was the venue to the launch of Magnus Aircraft on 4th December 2020 in a colorful ceremony attended by the President and Owner of Magnus Aircraft Gabor Tarany, the EU Deputy Ambassador to Kenya, Hungarian Ambassador to Kenya and other distinguished personalities.
This is the first time the light sport aircrafts popularly used for surveillance and training were being launched in Africa and Kenya is the first country in Africa to experience the company’s aviation technological wizardry.
According to the company’s website, the aircraft can be effectively used by companies to patrol remote premises or networks such as electric wires, oil pipe-lines and towers. The aircraft is also suited to government and emergency services and uses normal car petrol and has ballistic recovery and ejects a parachute that brings the plane down with minimal damage in case of engine failure.
According to Magnus Aircraft’s Brand Ambassador for Africa Ms Margaret Ikuah, Magnus Aircraft elected to have Kenya as its launching springboard in Africa to showcase its latest technology in Africa. Ms Ikuah who is the first black woman to be a brand ambassador of a European aircraft manufacturing company is a seasoned aviator who is passionate about flying light aircraft.
Others who attended the launch in Nairobi included the company CEO Mr. Laszlo Boros and its Marketing Director Hazafi Sandor among others.
