In 2004, the United States Federal Aviation Administration enacted groundbreaking regulatory changes, creating a new Sport Pilot License and new Light Sport Aircraft category. The ICON A5 amphibious sport plane is a response to these changes, appealing to anyone who has ever looked skyward and dreamed of flight. Pilots and non-pilots alike appreciate the aircraft’s features, which emphasize total user experience, accessibility, safety, and ultimately fun. The recreationally focused A5 can fly from both land and water, and has folding wings, enabling it to be towed on a trailer and compactly stored. Its intuitive sports car-like cockpit stands out by comparison to other aircraft for its simplicity and ease of use. Essentially, the A5 leverages sophisticated design to inspire people around the world to experience the ultimate freedom and dream of flight. For more information, please visit: www.iconaircraft.com.
