In his recent Blue Planet podcast, President János Áder featured a Hungarian company producing light planes manufactured with considerably less impact on the environment and consuming less than other market-leader aircraft.
Magnus Aircraft head Gábor Tarány said in the program that their planes were made of very light composite materials and their operation cost were just one fifth of other aircraft of similar size. He said that their consumption was less than that of a Cessna, while the production of composite required less energy and even that was obtained from renewable sources. Tarány highlighted their aircraft’s “acrobatic skills”, adding that it made the Magnus highly suitable for professional pilot training.
