Hmmm…can fly over land or water, has a more affordable price tag (no gear option, I think was $113K), two seats, truck-able, too. What’s not for Neptunus Lex Romero trailer to like about it, or some of the rest of us, too, with a little hankering for fun in a VFR world on a “conservative” budget?

I bring you the Icon A5 Sport Plane!

Get busy filling his tip jar, so we might vie for an opportunity to be a “guest” in the right seat..Just read about this in the Wired Magazine
