The folding Plane - Icon A5
did a quick search hope this isnt a repist
As you begin to plan your vacations for next year, you may want to consider taking a new ICON A5 with you as you embark on your adventure!
Intended for novice fliers who have received the FAA’s new, more accessible sport-pilot license, the A5 is a low-cost, seaworthy, easy-to-fly, easy-to-store aircraft that aims to bring personal flight to the masses. This sleek floatplane has folding wings that make it compact enough to tow home and stow in your garage. To make it simple for even the greenest pilots to fly, the A5 uses a sports-car-like instrument panel with GPS navigation and minimal instrumentation. The 100-horsepower engine can run on unleaded gas, so it can refuel at most marinas. The plane took its first flight last July, and Icon expects to begin delivering them to customers by late 2010.
“ICON Aircraft is bringing the freedom, fun and adventure back into aviation by building aircraft that evoke an emotional response like great sports cars do,” boasted founder and CEO Kirk Hawkins. “The sport is now back in flying.”
