The Icon A5 Redefines the Recreational Aircraft

Icon A5 ✪Icon Aircraft’s debut model is primed to jump-start a new segment of the recreational-aircraft industry. The 23-foot-long, 7.1-foot-tall amphibious light-sport aircraft (LSA)—a category that the Federal Aviation Administration created in 2004—features wings that tilt vertically and fold flat against the side of the fuselage, reducing the plane’s width from 34 feet to 8.5 feet. The aircraft can then be towed behind an SUV or a pickup truck on a specially designed towing trailer, much like those used to tow ski boats.
