If you’ve always dreamed of taking to the sky, your desires have never been more accessible. Icon, an aviation firm based in L.A., is releasing its A5 model amphibious sport plane to the public soon, and it looks like just about the most fun thing we’ve ever seen. Better still, it only requires about 20 hours of training to fly and seems remarkably safe compared to its competition.
With a unique and attractive design profile, the FAA’s first ever “spin-resistant” rating, and convenient folding wings that allow it to fit freely into a garage, the A5 combines form, function, and feasibility in a way its predecessors cannot match. There are a wealth of other appealing features we could go into, but, well, just watch the video. The plane speaks for itself.
