ICON A5 Specs

Amphibious Light Sport Aircraft (LSA)

The A5 reinvents recreational aviation, and lets you bring the exhilaration of flight to life like never before. Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) are targeted to pilots who primarily fly for recreation. LSA are designed to be easy to fly, lightweight, and have low operating costs.

Flying made easy.

Intuitive. Ergonomic. Beautifully simple.


Angle of Attack (AoA)

Small gauge. Big difference. This instrument is unique to the A5. It simplifies flying, telling you everything you need to know during flight. Located at the top of the instrument cluster and within easy line of sight for the pilot, the Angle of Attack gauge provides an instantaneous read of how close the wing is to stalling. This informs the pilot how much more it’s possible to ask of the airplane, regardless of the atmospheric conditions, the maneuver, or how the plane is loaded and configured.

Removable Side Windows

Enjoy flying with the windows out. The A5 provides an immersive flying experience unlike anything you’ve ever felt before. The side windows can be removed with one hand and stowed in the baggage area.

See the world in 3-D

With the engine in the back and a low instrument panel, the A5’s panoramic canopy allows you see the world in a new dimension.
Intuitive Controls

Flight Control Stick

Inspired by military aircraft, the A5 uses a central stick to control the ailerons and elevator. This intuitive interface provides very direct feedback, in keeping with the A5’s sport flying mission.

Integrated GPS

The A5 is available with the removable Garmin Aera 796 GPS. The touch screen 796 has a 3D terrain view, moving map with sectional markings, secondary instrument cluster, and flight planning system. ADS-B Out and In kits are available as add-ons.

Art meets aviation.

A stunning product of function.


Rotax 912iS Sport

Among the most widely used light aircraft engines, the Rotax 912 is reliable, lightweight, and efficient. The A5 uses the electronically fuel injected version, the 912 iS Sport, which delivers even better efficiency and extremely simple operation in all conditions. It accepts either 100LL and 91 octane auto gasoline.

Advanced Running Lights

The A5 uses LEDs for all exterior lighting. In addition to consuming less energy and generating less heat, they are lightweight, exceptionally bright and allow very sharply defined beams. Custom LED landing and taxi light assemblies are a defining part of the A5’s design.
Folding Wings

Folding Wings

Easy as 1, 2, 3. It takes one person just two minutes to unfold the A5’s wings and be ready for the open skies. Elegantly simple.

Seawings™ Platforms

These platforms provide stability on the water as well as convenient platforms to check engine vitals and enter the aircraft on land, from a dock, or from the water. The tips are removable in a matter of minutes, so they can be replaced if damaged.

Safety Innovation

Peace of mind at 1,000 feet.

Spin-Resistant Airframe (SRA)

Always under control. After thousands of hours of testing and development, the A5 is the world’s first spin-resistant Light Sport Aircraft.

ICON Parachute System (IPS)

Safe and Sound. IPS technology has more than 300 documented lives saved, some at altitudes as low as a few hundred feet. So if you encounter the unexpected, we’ve got you covered. Literally.

Angle of Attack (AoA)

Small gauge. Big difference. This single gauge tells you everything you need to know. Any speed. Any load. Any maneuver.
