“The Garmin G3X Touch takes our commitment to product improvement to the next level, greatly enhancing the adventure flying experience while seamlessly fitting into our intuitively-designed cockpit,” said Jason Huang, Icon president.
The A5 typically uses a portable Garmin aera 796 for navigation.
Icon has long advocated that pilots use an angle of attack indicator as a primary flight instrument—and the company’s in-house AOA indicator is still front and center in the A5 panel.
