Icon A5: "Plane Of The Future" Folds Up To Fit Into Garage

The Icon A5, an amphibious personal aircraft dubbed the "plane of the future", is a two seat, single-engine plane that can fly over 300 miles. Kirk Hawkens, CEO and founder of Icon A5, designed the aircraft so that anyone with an interest in flying can operate it.

Not only that, he made it small enough to fit into any plane lover's garage.

According to The Christian Science Monitor, the Icon A5's creator won a chance to pitch the product to Virgin Group Chairman Sir Richard Branson. The pitch session is scheduled for Oct. 26.

The $250,000 plane was featured by Nieman Marcus in the department store's 2009 Christmas Catalog.
