Icon-LSA-4


ICON A5_2The ICON A5 costs about $200K which is cheap by plane standards and with only 20 hours of flight time to get a pilot license needed to fly this plane I can see this open up a great new hobby for some. Here is hoping this is just the first step into making these planes cheaper and more accessible to the average Joe.
