If I ever hit the lottery that would be one of the very first purchases I make.

Here's a probable alternative to the A5 for around the same $300K.   MUCH newer technology, much easier to fly, less expensive to own and operate.   IKON has missed its window of opportunity.   They have been dicking around for 6 years and still don't  have predictable delivery...
Just think of how drone tech has advanced in the meantime....

I give you, The Speeder.

This is another alternative using OLD tech, (weight shift hang glider controls and a delta wing). 

I owned a hang glider that was very similar in the 80s.  Simplistic areodynamics, cheap, easy to fly, store and maintain and very safe
   Most fun I ever had in the air.

Did I mention its 30k as opposed to 300k?
