The oncoming Icon A5—Icon Aircraft image

Seeing a pair of these A5 aircraft flying near the Miami Seaplane Base was thrilling. They are sporty aircraft, easily turning and accelerating at 200 feet altitudes—then alighting on the water of Government Cut with ease. Icon Aircraft produces the A5 which he’s seating for two and is amphibious. The 100 hp Rotax engine gives the A5 a cruising speed of ~100 mph over a rage of   just under 500 miles with reserve. A full airframe parachute and angle-of-attack indicator can also be fitted.
