Icon Controversy Continues, But Icon Has Yet To Speak Up

The Company That Won't Answer Questions, May Finally Have To Do So

ANN has been bombarded with info and reports concerning the health and well-being of the Icon Aircraft program... many of them attributed to comments that were allegedly imparted at a recent Regional Aviation event.

However; even Icon's hometown paper tells ANN that the company isn't talking to them either, and numerous customers who were reportedly promised communications (if not a revised contract) by now, have yet to hear anything of substance. And finally; a respected source suggests that there may be a press release as early as today, Wednesday, though the contents of that communications are still undetermined.
