Each year, the FAI, based on the recommendation of the respective Aero Club, releases 1-2 diplomas to each nation. In this way, the FAI wishes to emphasize the absolute uniqueness and importance of this reward. The Aero Club of Italy (AECI) has proposed the Paul Tissandier diploma to Vittorio Magni for the year 2010 for achievements throughout his life. By issuing this award, the AECI has recognized and appreciated the world renowned quality and safety efforts made by the first Italian Company producing gyrocopters. A very proud moment for Magni Gyro!

10/3/2011 - A note from the factory - you do NOT have to support your Magni rotor blades when parked. Just letting them "hang" under their own weight is the healthy option for Magni Rotor Blades. Do NOT tie them either - just engage the rotor brake and let them hang naturally in the center position. Obviously you do tie them when you are outside in windy conditions. Other Gyro brands appear to need this type of rotor bracketed support in the hangar in part due to the elasticity of the aluminium whereas Magni Rotors are composite and have no such requirement

22/2/2011 - Congratulations to Pilot Piero Zazzera - A simple adjustment to the control system allows disabled people like Piero to easily fly the M16 Tandem Trainer. The simple mechanism, designed and developed by Magni Gyro, consists of a wheel-like device controlling a pulley, duly hinged on the control stick, moving the control cables of the pedal block and of the vertical stabilizer. The device is fixed and moves on the vertical axis so that the efforts applied to control yaw do not affect pitch control
