Dope! Got more news on the Icon A5 – the 2-seat mini-plane designed to be so simple that anyone who can drive a car can fly it. The sticker weighs in at just over $200K, so it is near the regular people price range (okay, regular people who have quite a bit of big change to throw around). Plus this plane can land on and take off on water. Put in the money, 30 hours’ training, get a license, and viola… your life is ‘fly’ for real #BALLIN

Italdesign and the aerospace industry leader Airbus unveiled Pop.Up, a trailblazing modular ground and air passenger concept vehicle system to relieve the traffic congestion in megacities of the future.
The Icon A5 aircraft is a collapsible seaplane straight from a James Bond movie! Intuitive design (e.g. almost anyone could learn to fly it quickly), portable (no more trouble to transport than towing a speedboat with a hitch)… can run on regular fuel… Man! Now, if they could drop that sticker price a touch. Incredible tech (and ‘big boy’ toy) right here.
