ICON A5: Take flight in This Luxe Amphibious Sport Aircraft Plane



ICON Aircraft was founded more than a decade ago with a vision to reinvent the way people experience flying, and more specifically, adventure flying. The company’s first aircraft, the ICON A5, is the ultimate adventure vehicle, designed to make it easier and safer than ever for anyone to become a pilot.


The award-winning ICON A5 Light Sport Aircraft unlocks adventures once thought impossible with traditional water or airborne vehicles. The innovative aircraft taps into the purest essence of aviation, bringing people the incredible freedom and adventure of personal flight.


The ICON A5 is categorized an amphibious Light Sport Aircraft, which means that it’s as comfortable landing or taking off on a runway as it is on a remote grass strip or even a lake or river. The airplane seats two, pilot and co-pilot (or passenger), and is perfect for anyone who craves adventure and wants to experience the world in 3-D, unencumbered by the typical confines of land and sea.


It’s A5’s incredible versatility and safety set it apart from other small aircraft. The plane’s unique wingfold system and optional amphibious trailer enable the A5 to be loaded, towed, and stored easily in a garage or driveway. And its amphibious capabilities mean it can be launched or recovered from a marina or dock, no airport hangar required.


Foremost in the development of the ICON A5 was an unyielding commitment to safety. The plane features a Spin-Resistant Airframe (SRA), a full airplane parachute called the ICON Parachute System (IPS), and an Angle of Attack (AoA) indicator that provides critical, yet intuitive inflight information to the pilot.


ICON’s commitment to safety extends beyond to its world-class flight training program, which the company built from the ground up. New or learning pilots can earn their Sport Pilot License in as little as 20 flight hours, though ICON’s flight instructors work with students for as long as needed to make sure they are confident, competent, and fully qualified to enjoy all that the A5 has to offer.

Let the ICON A5 expand your horizons.


A fully-loaded 2019 ICON A5 is listed at $389,000 MSRP. A $5,000 deposit reserves your delivery, with a production wait time of approximately 4-6 months.
