The Icon A5 is a innovative sport aircraft from ICON, a California based company founded in 2005.

Since the FAA's regulation changes in 2004 created the new Light Sport Aircraft category, ICON Aircraft's sole purpose has been to create a vehicle offering simple, comfortable recreational flying for almost anyone.

The Icon A5 is based around a strong, lightweight carbon fibre airframe. Powering the aircraft is a pusher-style propellor mounted to a 100 horsepower Rotax engine, which can be fueled using both aviation or automotive gasoline.

To make the A5 more practical Icon's engineers have equipped the aircraft with a number of features to cater for a variety of needs and uses. Folding wings (which can be operated either manually or automatically) mean the A5 can be transported with ease on public roads. It also significantly reduces the space needed during storage. An optional retractable undercarriage, coupled with a smooth underbelly, mean the A5 is capable off taking off and landing on both land and water.

The exterior design of the Icon A5 is characterized by stylish, clean lines and a sleek profile. This modern feel is also apparent inside where the designers have styled the cockpit using sports car interiors as inspiration. The result is a contemporary, intuitive layout and superb visibility. Features of the two-seat cockpit include a sophisticated GPS navigation system, MP3 audio system and LCD display system. Multiple storage compartments are a handy addition.

Safety features of the Icon A5 include predictable flying characteristics, a low stall speed, propeller guard, and wing angle-of-attack indicator. An optional safety feature of the Icon A5 is a complete aircraft parachute which can be deployed in the event of serious malfunction or emergency.
