Given the recent flooding here in Cedar Rapids, I think that I may have to get an ICON A5 airplane. It is a Light Sport Aircraft, meaning it can be flown without holding a medical, but it is limited to lower speeds and range. It is amphibious, which would be good for the flood, with retractable landing gear, for when the flood subsides. And the wings fold up, making the aircraft trailerable. It carries two passengers with relatively decent useful load. The estimated price is $139,000. And $5000 will get you a delivery position.
