Icon Aircraft A5

    The A5 fits a special category of sport aircraft that is designed to be easy to fly and requires less training for pilots. With the ability to land on water or on runways as short as 750 feet, and with a folding wing that makes it easy to transport on a trailer, the A5 strives to be a fun recreational machine, like a boat or motorcycle. Icon designed cockpit instruments to be simple and intuitive. The reliable 100 hp Rotax engine can run on either aviation fuel or auto gas. First deliveries are scheduled for fall of 2011.
