Icon Aircraft's A5

It's exciting to see consumer aircraft becoming more practical/affordable.

The A5 is

  • $139,000
  • Takes off and lands at 45mph
  • Amphibious (take off/land in water)
  • Easily transported/stored in small spaces (wings fold)
  • Scheduled for production in 2010.
To that end, how much longer till we're zipping around like the Jetsons?
