Studying for your FAA Written Test? 
See the list of gyroplane test questions you should study on our FEATURES page

I have my Gyroplane Certified Flight Instructor (Gyro CFI) rating, and am  able to provide logable training in the Magni M-16, 2-place Trainer.

Magni training

We are  providing three hours of introductory training lessons to prospective Magni customers before we would place an order for a Magni gyro. These three introductory hours of training are intended to familiarize you with the Magni gyro and to help you decide whether to proceed with a purchase and further training.

The normal training rate is $180 per hour.  This price includes appropriate ground instruction and familiarization.   Should you then decide to purchase a Magni gyro, the cost of the introduction training hours will be applied to a solo/transition training package arranged as a part of the purchase contract. That solo/transition training package would be no more than $2600 (for a logbook solo endorsement), including the introductory 3 hours. The solo/transition training package price will be mutually determined upon completion of the introductory three hours of training.

NOTE: This solo/transition training package, as a part of the purchase contract for a Magni gyro, will allow you to fly your Magni gyro solo as a student pilot. Further experience and training hours, as defined by the FARs, would be required to obtain a full Private or Recreational Pilot's license, or to obtain a Gyroplane "Add-on" to an existing pilot rating. If you would already have an Airplane or Helicopter private pilot rating, this training package would allow you to fly an EXPERIMENTAL gyro SOLO, (A private pilot rating allows you to fly an EXPERIMENTAL aircraft solo).

We accept appointments for the introductory three hours of training at our Perryville Mo. base. Please call us at (314) 540-0367, or email us to arrange an appointment. We expect these three hours of introductory training can be accomplished in one day, however it would be desirable to allow at least an overnight stay in case of weather problems and in order that we might have more time for ground instruction and discussion. We have arranged for special Magni USA rates at the Ste. Genevieve Mo. Microtel Inn.  We can provide transportation from the motel to the Perryville airport.

We hope that your interest in Magni gyros continues.  We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Additional Notes on Training:

Per the Sales Contract, the customer must receive training or transition training in a Magni machine from a Magni USA approved instructor.  The cost of this training will be determined at the time an order is placed and will be added in the total price on the sales contract.  These up-front training costs will vary between $500 and $2600, depending on the experience level of the customer.

  • For instance, an experienced rotorcraft pilot might require minimal transition training, while non-rotorcraft experienced customers may require more.
  • All Magni USA customers, by contract, are required to receive dual and transition training into their Magni machine in order to assure their competency to fly their Magni gyroplane.
  • These charges, included and itemized additionally on the sales contract, will include all dual instruction required for a solo or Student logbook endorsement (up to 20 hours of dual), AND all additional supervision to transition the purchaser to competent solo flight in their Magni machine.These costs are based on a special training rate for Magni purchases of $100 per hour (normally $180 per hour) of dual flight training.
  • Pre-purchase training charges will apply toward the total training package cost in the final sales contract.  The purpose of this pre-sale training is to help the potential purchaser and Magni USA determine whether to proceed with a purchase, and to help assure that the customer will be able to successfully learn to fly their own machine - prior to commitment of the customer or of Magni USA.  (Visit us at Perryville airport for demo ride and introductory training)
  • Partial rebates from the contractual training costs may be made for any dual training done in the customer's machine rather than in the Magni USA trainer.  Keep in mind that the dual flight is not allowed in an Experimental aircraft until the initial 40 flight test hours are flown off.  Per FAA regulations, the purchaser, or any other (rated) pilot, must have the Magni USA training endorsement prior to solo flight in that machine.
  • Partial rebates from the contractual training costs may be made in allowance for the customer obtaining a Student solo endorsement from another CFI or BFI - upon Magni USA review and approval of that training.  However, all Magni USA purchasers will require some minimal dual and transition training into their Magni machine by Magni USA or an approved Magni instructor in a Magni trainer.
  • All training may or will be conducted at the Magni USA home base in Missouri, at any flying event which Magni USA has planned to be at, or at a mutually agreed upon time and location - at the customer's expense for any incurred travel or lodging expenses (Contractual training costs do not include travel or lodging for either the customer or for Magni USA)

(The purpose for the up-front deposit for training is to assure as best possible, that the customer will accomplish adequate training and familiarization for flight in their Magni machine.  These up-front costs are significantly less than normal gyro training expenses.)
