Talk about a company stepping up with something cool, VDIH DQG HDVy WR fly. 7KDW ZLOO VWLOO PHHW yRur GHVLJQ ZLVK list, look to the ICON A5. An amphibious light sport aircraft that fuses outstanding aeronautical engineering with the ease of driving a car. The ICON A5 is a lightweight carbon fiEHr DLrIrDPH SRZHrHG Ey D VLQJOH 100 KS 5RWDx 912 U/6 engine driving a three-bladed pusher propeller. It's meant to evoke a change in sport aviation. In both design and safety, an aircraft like no other. With the ability to be stored in your garage and then transported and ODuQFKHG OLNH yRu ZRuOG DQy VSRrW fiVKLQJ ERDW. :KDW makes this possible is the folding wings, a simple push of a button and the wing span goes from 34 ft to a trailer sized 8.5 ft. Thinking about bridges and under passes it comes to only 8.3 ft with a weight of 1430 lbs. Talk
about fun, 65% of the vehicles on the road can tow this on the freeway and roll the A5 down the ramp. Park your vehicle and head off to a private affair. What I really like about the A5 is the innovation put into the aircraft, land anywhere, stall/spin-resistance, automotive or aviation fuel, and storage. Not only can you store an A5 in your large garage or access the A5 from your dock on the water; as the A5 comes with seawing platforms for easy access and docking. There are more features like Low stall speed, Angle of Attack indicator, optional parachute and more, but I will get into that when I do a more detailed review.
