As a deposit holder, by now you’ve heard all about the A5’s groundbreaking Spin Resistant Airframe and its safety implications from a technical perspective. In fact, many of you have experienced firsthand how forgiving it is when stalled and poorly flown. However, this new video captures the real-time and emotive reactions of pilots experiencing the A5’s remarkable behavior for the very first time — including former Cessna CEO and current EAA President Jack Pelton, and many others. Our videographer put this together from GoPro® footage he shot last year. Cool stuff. By the way: you’re watching the late Jon Karkow’s brilliance in action. He rocked it.”
