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.




  • 1,320 pounds (599 kg) maximum takeoff weight
  • 1,430 pounds (seaplanes) (649 kg) maximum takeoff weight
  • Maximum airspeed of 120 knots (138 mph) (222 kmh)
  • Maximum two-person seating capacity (pilot + passenger)
  • Single, reciprocating engine
  • Fixed or ground-adjustable propeller
  • Non-pressurized cabin
  • Fixed landing gear (retractable gear allowed for seaplanes)
  • Maximum stall speed of 45 knots (52 mph) (83 kmh)




  • Type of airplane: Any that meets LSA classification
  • In–flight training: 20 hours (minimum)
  • Medical Requirements: FAA Medical or Driver’s License*
  • Minimum Age: 17
  • Certification Process: pass an FAA written and practical examination
  • Flying at night: No
  • Flying cross country: Yes
  • Flight in inclement weather or clouds: No
  • Flight in controlled airspace: Yes with additional instructor sign-off
  • Occupants: 2 (pilot and passenger)
  • Altitude limit: 10,000 ft. MSL (mean sea level)

*Valid U.S. Driver’s License may be used as evidence of medical eligibility provided the individual’s most recent application for an FAA Medical Certificate was not denied, revoked, suspended or withdrawn.

  • Airbus completes a major ground test of flying taxi.
  • “CityAirbus” is designed to carry 4 passengers.
  • Battery powered vehicle that can reach 80 mph.


Airbus has said it remains on track to carry out the maiden flight of a “flying taxi” by the end of next year.

The aerospace giant confirmed the first flight target after its helicopter division successfully completed a full-scale ground test of a propulsion system for the “CityAirbus.”

“We now have a better understanding of the performance of CityAirbus’ innovative electric propulsion system, which we will continue to mature through rigorous testing while beginning the assembly of the full-scale CityAirbus flight demonstrator,” Marius Bebesel, CityAirbus’s chief engineer, said in a statement online Tuesday.


CityAirbus is described as a battery-powered air vehicle that is able to vertically take off and land.

The European aerospace company said it is designed to carry up to four passengers over congested areas to destinations such as airports or train stations.

The vehicle is slated to have a pilot onboard at first but would switch to full autonomous operations as and when technology developed.

Airbus added that the aircraft will operate on fixed routes with speeds up to 120 kph (80 mph).
