Ever dream of strolling out to the garage, sliding inside your own personal aircraft, rolling down the driveway, and flying off to some exotic place? If so, then you're in luck, as Icon Aircraft is working towards making this dream a reality with their Icon A5 airplane. The two passenger A5 is just 22 feet in length and comes with wings that fold up for easier storage.
