Shut Up And Take Our Money: The One And Only ICON A5 Is A Plane Everyone Can Fly

If you’re one of the many who always dreamt of flying a plane but couldn’t afford to do so either because planes are so damn expensive or because learning how to fly one was a daunting undertaking, then rejoice because the ICON A5 is here to change things forever.

Built for flying. Made for adventure.

The ICON A5 is a flying toy that anyone can operate, and when we say everyone, we also mean your grandma who can barely move the pan around. With state of the art safety and recovery mechanisms, and with automated procedures that take away the hassle of learning what 1000 buttons and handle serve for, the A5 is literally the plane everyone with no exception can take out for a ride.

The A5 can fly off solid ground or water, and its foldable wings makes it easily transportable anywhere and everywhere. The user friendly cockpit and interface means that you can spend more time enjoying the scenery or taking selfies instead of looking at blinking LEDs or pushing buttons. Flying this baby feels like driving a luxury sedan several thousands feet off the ground.

With a price tag of 189,000 USD+ and a delivery date in the late 2019 (The 1200 pre-orders mean there is a huge line you’ll have to join), the A5 might not be for everyone, but it sure as hell is a bargain for millions out there who are ready to spend 200 grands for the privilege of flying a sick plane they can park in their garage.
