With the possible exception of the price tag, Lisa appears to be poised to clean Icon's clock.
After what seems like too many years, the Icon A5 project is still little more than a few prototypes and countless bombastic promotions that tend to hide the fact that the A5 can be equipped EITHER with folding wings OR retractable gear, but not both.
Unless I misread something in this article, it seems that the Akoya has retracts AND folding wings at the same time which give the Akoya a huge advantage (at least in my opinion).
$350,000 for an LSA?
I thought ultralights and light sport aircraft were supposed to make flying affordable again.
What the **** happened?
