What is an Aircraft Magneto?

An aircraft magneto is an engine driven electrical generator that uses permanent magnets and coils to produce high voltage to fire the engine spark plugs. Aircraft magnetos are compact, reliable, and require no external electrical source to operate.

Aircraft piston engines are designed with two independent ignition systems, that is to say, two spark plugs per cylinder and each airplane magneto fires the piston. The left aircraft magneto fires one plug per cylinder, while the right aircraft magneto fires the other. This arrangement produces a smoother and more complete combustion of the fuel mixture, while also providing ignition redundancy in the event one airplane magneto should fail.

Because there are varying types and brands, choosing the right aircraft magneto for your airplane needs is important. Some of the more common aircraft magneto types are dual magnetos, Bendix magnetos, and Slick magnetos.
