An aircraft magneto is, most simply, an electrical generator that produces an alternating current using permanent magnets and coils. Aircraft engine spark plugs are fired by the high voltage produced by aircraft magnetos.
Dual magnetos are a useful combination where both aircraft magnetos are kept within a single housing which is operated by a single engine drive and magnet rotor. A popular brand of dual magnetos is the Bendix dual magneto.
Bendix magnetos are a trusted brand of aircraft magnetos. They are manufactured by Teledyne Continental Motors and come in various models. This type of magneto is generally cost-efficient because of the fact that it can be overhauled again and again.
