Jon Karkow, lead engineer at Icon, and new employee Cagri Sever died on May 8 when the Icon A5 they were flying crashed on the shore of Lake Berreyssa, near Icon headquarters in California.
In its preliminary report, the NTSB said a witness, who was aboard a boat on the lake, told investigators he saw the A5 flying about 30 to 50 feet above the water, at what seemed to be a low speed. The witness said the airplane passed by his position and entered a nearby cove.

The ICON A5 aircraft was piloted by ICON's Engineering Fellow and Chief Test Pilot Jon Karkow.
Also aboard was ICON's recently hired Director of Engineering, Cagri Sever. The flight was Sever's first in the A5 and was set to be his introduction to the product on which he would be working at ICON. Jon and Cagri were both passionate engineers who were inspired by the mission to make personal flying more accessible. Jon was an aviation legend who spent 21 years at Scaled Composites before dedicating the last ten years of his career to ICON developing the A5, initially as ICON's Lead Aero Engineer and then as Engineering Fellow. Jon and Cagri were part of the ICON family.
