Icon Aircraft has recently released their new truly innovative light aircraft the IKON A5 that quite literally folds up to fit into a 1 car garage, yep, no hangar necessary.
The new classification of light aircraft recently approved by the Federal Aircraft Administration (FAA) “light sports aircraft” is making these new age amphibious flying machines a multifaceted mode of transportation.
This ultimate fantasy recreational vehicle is an aviation reality that will be flying high by late 2010 with a base price tag of $139,000.
Buyers interested in owning the first 100 ICON A5s manufactured can join the Icon 100 Club. Members are required to place a $100,000 deposit instead of the standard $5,000 down payment. The first 100 aircraft will be a limited edition designated the Icon A5 LE.
