Get Personal With Your Aircraft

Tired of the stale cookies in first-class? Then pilot your own damn plane—the Icon A5, an amphibious light sport aircraft that you can park in the garage thanks to its folding wings. The carbon-fiber airframe on this little two-seater is lighter than aluminum and stronger, too, which you’ll appreciate when you plow through a flock of geese. The 100 hp engine tops out at around 120 mph and will haul you and a passenger up to 10,000 feet and as far as 350 miles on one tank. When you’re ready to land, you can put her down on solid ground or water. All that’s left to do is fold it up and tow it home…and while away the wee hours making entries in your cloud diary. That one looked just like a puppy!
