Welcome to ICON Flight Center.

Learning to fly the ICON A5 has never been more accessible. ICON’s innovative flight training makes it easy and fun.

School was never so thrilling.

A short hop from ICON’s headquarters is Lake Berryessa: the A5’s natural habitat. Perfect for honing maneuvers and water landings.

Learn from those with the right stuff.

ICON Flight Instructors are the best of the best. Fighter jets. Gliders. Experimentals. Amphibians. Our team has flown them and trained people to fly them.

Sport Flying

Light Sport Aircraft

Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) are targeted to recreational 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.

– 1,320 pounds (599 kg) maximum takeoff weight (1,430 pounds for seaplanes) (649 kg)
– 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)

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, and in uncongested airspace, much of the complexities of learning to fly have been removed.

– 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provided the individual’s most recent application for an FAA Medical Certificate was not denied, revoked, suspended or withdrawn.
