ICON Announces Pending Approval for Type Certified A5 Model

ICON has announced the pending approval of a Type Certified model of the ICON A5. This is a seminal moment, as it paves the way for the A5 to be available for export to and registration in countries around the world.

​​​​​Type Certification, simply put, makes the process of importing, certifying and registering the aircraft easier in countries that either don’t have a Light Sport category or don’t recognize the A5’s weight exemption.

This model of the A5 will be Type Certified in the Primary Category and features the Garmin 796 avionics package, as well as a new Signature livery design with three new color options. The first ICON A5 Certified Edition is scheduled to come off the assembly line in late 2021.
