The price has gone up as well, with a new ICON A-5 now expected to cost about 189-thousand dollars. EAA Chairman Jack Pelton opened his discussion of AirVenture 2013 with even more detail about the way that the FAA ran roughshod over the EAA barely two months ago... and also admitted that last year’s AirVenture showed that EAA had ‘lost its way...’ Still; EAA has made tremendou
