On a popular TV show titled Antiques Roadshow, people show up with all kinds of stuff they have found in a basement or attic, and they ask the experts if it has any value. In this case, the old junk found in the attic turned out to be an original 1909 Curtiss Pusher airplane. We would love to hear one of those experts respond to this find!

Icon Steps Back, Admits Curtailed Production Plan

Finally Talking (And Still Hyping), Icon Production Plans Take A Big Hit

The following is the text of a release from Icon Aircraft (bluster and all)... ANN Analysis and industry reaction will follow shortly...

These changes are part of a strategy to improve the A5 production processes and manufacturing supply chain while simultaneously supporting flight training for ICON customers. ICON announced the following: A significant reduction in 2016 aircraft production from 175 to 20 (1-year delay). Shifting early production aircraft to ICON Flight Centers in CA, TX, and FL. A reduction in cost structure and workforce while improving manufacturing. Major revisions to ICON’s Aircraft Purchase Agreement in response to customer feedback.

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. And while multiple sources appear to have determined that there is some modest consensus on what's going on, many of them referring to an industry personality who has failed to return our calls, ANN simply can't/won't report this data until someone steps forward with substantial facts and verifiable evidence. But Icon isn't talking. 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.
