I got the great opportunity to fly with a fellow ForeFlight guy today in the ICON A5. Brint took me up for a quick hop to splash in a bit of water and get a good feel for how capable the airplane really is. I expected to like it, but after flying it I REALLY like it. :)

I didn't do any commentary on this video, figured the intercom audio spoke for itself. We flew out of 3R9 airport: Lakeway Airpark. Really cool little place.
