Magnix eCaravan Suffered Electric Power Loss During Testing Earlier this year JF alerted you to the first flight of the Magnix 'eCaravan'. Essentially it is a retrofitted Cessna C208 Caravan. It was retrofitted in a collaboration between Magnix and AeroTec and replaces the regular Pratt & Whitney PT6A engine with a Magni500 electric engine capable of 750 horse power. Of course the Pratt & Whitney powerplant was a bit more powerful at 867 horse power. The catch here though is that this Caravan is fully electric and operates without any major emissions. The technology though being tested has a promising future but won't come without fault as Magnix experienced earlier in the year while testing.
