The choice of the name Magister for the company represents our aim to be a centre of high quality training and consultancy support to the patent information community.
The same name has been given to at least two training aircraft, the Fouga Magister jet trainer of the 1950s and the Miles Magister of the late 1930s.
Magister Ltd. was founded in Reading, England, a short distance from Woodley Aerodrome. This small airfield was the hub of operations for Miles Aircraft Ltd. between 1934 and 1947. One of their most successful products was the M.14 Magister, a single-engined basic trainer for the Royal Air Force.
Miles Aircraft Ltd. was known as a highly innovative company, with extensive research interests, including involvement in the British project to break the sound barrier in 1946. The company was granted over 100 patents during its short life.
