Lou, the luckiest girl in the world, is bored with her perfect life and is seeking adventure. Jenkins, the unluckiest guy in the world, just wants an accident-free day. When the two cross paths one day, their fortunes chaotically collide and they find just what they were looking for.
Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) manufacturer ICON Aircraft debuted its first production A5 amphibious, folding-wing plane for the general public. Weighing in at 1510 lb (686.4 kg), the two-seater amphibian is equipped with both a carbon composite waterproof hull and optional retractable landing gear. Its 100 bhp Rotax 912 iS petrol engine gives the aircraft a top speed of 105 kts (120 mph, 194 km/h) and a range of 300 nautical miles (345 mi, 555.6 km). “The A5 is no longer a prototype or concept aircraft; it’s a sophisticated, production-ready, consumer-focused aircraft. The entire ICON team is pouring its heart and soul into bringing the A5 to our customers, and it shows in the truly exceptional execution of the product. I couldn’t be prouder.” ICON Aircraft Founder and CEO Kirk Hawkins said. The estimated price of the ICON A5 is US$189,000. Timeframe for the official launch of the production A5 to consumers is set for May 2015.
