Many people are curious about the Icon A5 airplane. Perhaps because of the recent news that this startup company got a chance to sell its concept to Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson this coming Oct 26.
Icon A5 is a personal aircraft with an amphibious hull and landing gear crafted by the same team of very renowned engineers and designers that created SpaceShipOne and Virgin Global Flyer.
With maximum altitude of 15,000 ft, top speed of 138 miles per hour, and very light – gross weight of 1,430 lbs (including people, luggage and fuel). Price tag is at $250,000 and in case you want to test drive this mean machine you must have at least 20 hours of sports pilot training.
