The Icon A5 is a user-friendly plane made for land, air and water. However, the most important thing about this new foldable seaplane, and featured Miami travel gadget of the week, is that you can park it in your driveway. For an estimated price of $139,000 dock your own foldable seaplane in your Miami waterfront home
and get to know Miami lifestyle.
Although it is not quite a flying car, the Icon A5 can be towed home and parked in a garage after landing.
This foldable seaplane is one of the most affordable, yet luxurious private planes available for civilian flyers.
You can fly the Icon A5 with a simple sport-pilot certification, which requires half the training time of a standard license. A cockpit design with carmaker-influences such as Nissan, has minimal instrumentation and a GPS navigation system, making the plane easier to pilot.
The first models are expected to touch down in late 2010. To get more information or buy our featured Miami travel gadget of the week, visit: www.iconaircraft.com
