Flying the A5 Icon Amphibious LSA

Pretty cool looking and flying aircraft. I was skeptical…but 2000 orders and what looks to be a very polished product…maybe it will make it…


The Icon HQ recently moved to my home airport at KVCB. I often see them around the pattern and heading back and fourth to our local lakes. My reserve unit even has a couple guys that work there, and the local flight school has been on the waiting list for one for a while now.

According to the guys I know that work there, it’s got it’s certifications and well on its way to making to costomers relatively soon.

On a side note, I guess the guy that started the company is an x viper driver. My friends tell me he really puts the thing through its paces. Plenty to do for the composite/structure guys.
