Here’s Ge­orge Jet­son

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

An ex­cit­ing blend of jet ski, car and plane, this am­phibi­ous two-seater can take off and land on tar­mac, grass or wa­ter, and its 100 horses will power it to 10,000 feet and a top speed of 176km/h, with a range of 780km. the Icon a5 is sim­ple to fly—wannabe pi­lots can be in the air af­ter just 20 hours of train­ing—and it’s packed with safety fea­tures, in­clud­ing an anti-stalling de­vice and a bal­lis­tic parachute that will de­ploy in case of emer­gency. for those who enjoy a lit­tle wind in their hair, the side pan­els re­tract. the craft is just seven me­tres long and weighs less than 500kg. With its wings folded back, the a5 can be hitched to a car for the tow home. those keen to re­alise that child­hood dream of a fly­ing car will have to be pa­tient; with a queue of more than 1,500 or­ders to date, a de­posit paid to­day won’t have you in the air be­fore 2018.
