ICON A5 Update

Awesome News!
Here's the updated status on the ICON A5 Aircraft delivery. As some of you may know, we've placed an order for our A5 in July 0f 2011, knowing that delivery would take a while, since we are 562nd on the recipients list, to take possession.

The FAA has awarded ICON with an exemption on the "maximum take-off weight" allowance for an LSA (Light Sport Aircraft), in order to allow for the SRA (Spin-Resistant Airframe). This airframe modification will provide added safety in the event of a stall, preventing tailspin.

This will give ICON the long-awaited "green light" to go in full production. ICON has already upgraded several features (aside from the SRA), like the Garmin Aero 796 GPS, Fuel Injected engine, removable windows, etc...

Based on recent updates, we expect to take delivery sometimes in Q4 2016.  You can read up and obtain additional details on the SRA article HERE

We look forward to being able to fulfill your aerial photography projects, using this state-of-the-art aircraft. The ICON A5 Official Website >
