ICON Provides Some Intel In May 2019
The folks at ICON Aircraft released their latest newsletter in May, outlining some of the happenings regarding deliveries, manufacturing, and a increasing number of events the company has attended and is planning to attend. The aircraft manufacturer based in Vacaville, California is progressing firmly on its path to getting manufacturing to scale-able levels.
With currently 61 A5’s in owners hands in the U.S. and Canada, the first quarter of 2019 closed with 16 freshly delivered planes. The company has invested heavily into creating a service network across the United States and now looks at no less than 34 Service partners for providing maintenance, management and upkeep for its customers planes.
Not known for traveling the “traditional” path, ICON didn’t disappoint with the news that it entered into a partnership with Prestige Imports, a luxury car dealership in Miami, Florida. If you have never seen an airplane prominently on display between Lamborghini’s, there’s your option for surprise! A cool idea, we think.
The event schedule has been ramped up significantly. 60 events in 10 states are behind the company already and a ton more is on the schedule remainder of 2019. We spoke with Jerry Meyer who is Director of Marketing at ICON Aircraft and he tells Seaplanemagazine.com
“We’re on track to attend or host more than 120 events and have demo teams working across the country to allow as many people as possible to experience the A5. We’ll have an A5 on display at the GoPro exhibit at EAA AirVenture and we will also be running dozens of A5 demo flights from a nearby lake for interested buyers. We have some exciting plans for the week, so stop by and say hello if you’re at OSH. We look forward to sharing our vision of adventure flying.”
