Have you ever seen or flown a small sport plane which can both take off and land on water or ground, has foldable wings so that you can carry it on your trailer-truck and park it in your garage?
Now this may not remain a dream, as a prototype of the American light-sport aircraft (LSA) which has been tested for the past three years is likely to enter the production line in the second quarter of 2012.
The two-seater ICON A5 is being developed by California-based Icon Aircraft. Its wings can be folded easily from the cockpit in under five minutes while on water or land.
