Icon's lead test pilot killed in A5 accident - AOPA

Jon Karkow, 55, was the lead test pilot on the A5 and helped design and refine its folding wings and other air and water control surfaces.
The Icon won rave reviews from pilots who flew it for its crisp handling and forgiving nature, characteristics that in most airplanes are at odds with each other. The A5's spin-resistant design was meant to make it among the safest aircraft in its category. Karkow was a lead engineer at Scaled Composites before joining Icon and played a central role in designing and building the long-winged GlobalFlyer in which adventurer Steve Fossett set world distance and endurance records. Icon Founder Kirk Hawkins said in a Facebook post that the loss of Karkow and Sever was a heavy blow.
