Fold-Up Plane Getting Closer To Reality

Posted on Aug 6 2008 - 12:43pm by Russ

The ICON A5 showed off it’s transformer like ability to fold-up at last weeks EAA AirVenture show in Oskosh. ICON’s hope is that the plane will appeal to customers who are intimidated by the process of getting a typical pilots license, or/and don’t have a place to store a full sized plane. The ICON A5 can be flown with limited training and fits in a standard garage… they should be in production by 2010. My favorite part is the automobile like dashboard. I hope the wings stay attached in flight (I expect they will for $139,000)

More pictures and video after the break.

    Do they have a flying prototype yet? So far all I have seen have been fancy cocktail party unveilings of the same static mockup.
