It will be interesting to see what the final outcome of this is. A long awaited aircraft with escalating costs and now some safety issues to be determined. Can you say Delorean?

Icon has been trying to put an aircraft into production for over 10 years. The real disaster is the bureaucracy preventing a group of folks just trying to make a few bucks selling an aircraft. It will always be very dangerous operating a vehicle.

Two people died in their shower when they slipped and fell this morning. Two people got hit by a car in the crosswalk in the past 6 hours. Two people in Chicago got shot last night.

I wish the best for the family of Icon...

I think the aircraft is much better than the people it is supposed to attract, but still a machine capable of killing people very much dead. Speculation is running rampant on the liberal shiny jet pilot forum with 60+ responses so far.

I too hope they will overcome this tragedy!

A discussion forum on my daily reading list which caters primarily to airline pilots and wannabe's. Its a very, very political and extremely busy forum.
