CEO of MagniX Steps Down

After 4 Years With The Electric Aircraft Developer, Roei Ganzarski Moves On

Roei Ganzarski posted a notice to his Linkedin account that after 4 years with the electric aircraft company he would be ending his tenure.

MagniX saw a number of milestones under his tutelage that he named in his farewell address, along with a brief recollection of his most memorable occasions. 

"I am so proud of what we were able to achieve during the last four years at magniX including, to name a few:" he began. He recalls "the world's first all-electric commercially-focused flights" with the company's electrically-propelled Cessna eCaravan and its later flight tests that saw the tester reach 8,000 feet. That aircraft made magniX the "first and still only propulsion company to get FAA Special Conditions published for part 33 electric propulsion," he continued. 

Ganzarski is proud of the sales made during his time as an executive. Agreements with commercial customers for "retrofits and newly designed aircraft; fixed wing and rotorcraft; battery electric, hydrogen fuel cell electric, and hybrid electric; from 5 passengers to 50-sized aircraft." Their conversions were so renowned, he says, that NASA awarded them a $75 million contract to develop a Part 25 airliner demonstrator, "all" he reminded readers, "with an amazing team of less than 60!"

“I have no doubt that the future of aviation is electric. It has to be for the sake of our children and grandchildren. It is no longer a question of if, but only when and who. I leave magniX and Eviation positioned to continue their leadership in the field,”he said in closing. He has not revealed his next career move, but rumors point to an upcoming CEO role at another Washington company, Alitheon. That company also lies in the vein of sustainability, integrating tracking and digital authentication for supply chains printed directly on the product, obviating the need for wasteful packaging.
