All instructors have completed training with ICON in the A5, so you can be confident that you’re getting the best experience and you’ll be able to enjoy everything the A5 has to offer.
ICON Authorized Flight Instructor
ICON Authorized Flight Instructors are CFIs that have completed the A5 Instructor Course, which is taught by ICON company instructors and recognized by insurance underwriters. These instructors typically do not own an A5 themselves, but are independent and engaged by owners for everything from initial flight training to A5 currency and proficiency training.
A5 Flight Center
A5 Flight Centers have at least one A5 on-site and are staffed by CFIs that have completed the A5 Instructor Course. ICON has two company-owned flight centers in Tampa and Vacaville. Other flight centers across the US have been established by training partners to provide initial, transition and recurrency training in the A5 to owners, and also may provide training and rental services to other customers as well. Contact one of these flight schools for a one-flight Sport Flying Introduction (SFI) today.
