Light Sport Aircraft

Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) are targeted to pilots who primarily fly for fun. LSA are designed to be affordable, lightweight, and easy to operate. All ICON Aircraft are classified as S-LSA (Special-Light Sport Aircraft). They are factory built and ready-to-fly aircraft.




Sport Pilot License

The Sport Pilot License (SPL) is a new type of pilot certificate designed to get you safely and easily trained for recreational flying in Light Sport Aircraft. By restricting recreational flying for sport pilots to daytime, good weather, below10,000 feet MSL, and in uncongested airspace, much of the complexities and difficulties of learning to fly have been removed. 95% of the US Airspace below 10,000 MSL is open to sport flying.
