magniX and Vancouver-based Harbour Air ratified a Letter of Intent (LOI) for 50 magni650 motors for Harbour Air’s fleet. The re-engining process will begin with De Havilland DHC-2 Beavers in 2026 and be used for third-party conversions. We have been following magniX for several years.

2019 saw the first flight of the first “eBeaver.” In 2022, the aircraft made its first point-to-point flight.  In doing these flights, Harbour Air demonstrates the utility of the “last mile” ability of the current electric-power technology.  The challenge that electric-powered aircraft face is primarily range and then speed.  Harbour Air serves an ideal market for this type of deployment.  New England’s Cape Air is the other “natural” for this type of service.  Cape Air has selected the other magniX -powered aircraft, the Eviation Alice.

Since 1982, Harbour Air operates 45 aircraft that perform 300 daily scheduled flights and other flights. The airline serves 12 scheduled destinations connecting Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle, Nanaimo, Tofino, Whistler, Vancouver Airport/Richmond, Sechelt, Salt Spring Island, Powell River, and Comox, B.C.

Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
