Aircraft piston engine ignition is usually accomplished through the operation of an aircraft magneto. Avotek offers a variety of the most popular Bendix and Slick magnetos in cut-away form. All units are carefully designed to reveal the complete inner mechanism of the magneto, and in most cases are capable of generating a spark.

DC Generator EA65
This cut-away unit clearly demonstrates the operation of a basic DC generator. The armature, fields, brushes and internal wiring are all easily viewable.
Light Aircraft Starter EA66
Most Lycoming engines use a lightweight DC motor with clutch assembly to engage the starter ring gear. This unit showcases the internal operation of both the starter and associated clutch.
This rotary mechanical inverter is cut away to show both the motor and AC generator/alternator to demonstrate direct current power conversion to alternating current.
Available as a cut-away or complete unit. See description in Powerplant systems.
