Welcome to the sport flying revolution.

With the groundbreaking new FAA Sport Pilot rules, learning to fly has never been more accessible. ICON’s innovative flight training makes it easy. And some serious fun.

Learn from those with the right stuff.

ICON Flight Instructors are the best. No, the best of the best. Fighter jets. Gliders. Experimentals. Amphibians. Our team has flown them and trained people to fly them.

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.

Cloud-based learning.

A new plane deserves a new way to learn, right? We’ve developed a unique, interactive training system that allows you to learn at your own pace. Whenever you want. Big screen or small.
