ICon-A5 behind DOAV Hanger


The Virginia Department of Aviation’s ICON A-5 Introduction to Flight Program brings this amazing light sport amphibian aircraft to Virginia schools, career days, community events, airports, and other locations at no cost to the educational group.

The ICON A-5 is a two-seat aircraft, and its folding wings allow it to be easily trailered from one location to another. The aircraft is an excellent education platform and introduction to aviation. Students learn how aircraft fly and about aviation careers. Two students at a time sit in the cockpit and learn about flight controls and the instrument panel.

The ICON A-5 has been part of programs for K-12 students, university students, and adult organizations. Elementary grades 4 and 5 are especially encouraged to participate; a presentation can be customized based on the age and previous knowledge of the group. The program is open to schools throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
