Got to spend an hour in an Icon A5 earlier this month! It was very marginal VFR, ceiling of about 800', but it was fun. Comparable handling to my Searey except it climbed a bit slower,. It was definitely more stable in bumpy air. One video is the takeoff from Lake Norman Airpark, other is of a flyby of my home airpark. If anything could tempt me away from a Searey, it would be this beautiful little aircraft.

After buying a bad tank of fuel that looked like OJ it had so much red clay in it, I had to drain my fuel system, clean gas tank, filters, carbs, etc. This is my landing after the first test flight after putting my Searey back together. Not a perfect landing but not awful for being ground for months during repairs. #searey #lakenormanflying #longislandairpark

Went flying today from Charlotte area to Tennessee over the Smoky Mountains. Was beautiful, but darn cold at 10,000+ feet. #throughglass #searey #flying #smokeymountains

20 minute Google Glass Video: Flight of two Seareys traveling from Laney Field (N92) to Long Island Airpark (NC26).
First 2 minutes are just us taxiing to end of runway and waiting for skydivers to land.
2min 20sec skydiver lands off starboard wing.
3mi 30sec finally taking off afer skydiver cleared.
Then about 14 minutes of flying.
17 minute mark Turning on final at Long Island.
(I flew an extended downwind to give my buddy plenty of time to clear the runway ahead of me).
17:48 touchdown!
18:30 shutdown
19:00 wave my neighbors by (they had stopped to see if I was taxiing out again)
19:17 mutter about catching my foot on a cord as I stumble out of the cockpit
20:00 tiding up the cockpit and end of video

Splashed around on Lake Norman today before heading over to Lincoln County for some touch-and-goes. Then back to Long Island Airpark for a picture perfect sunset landing. I love my Searey, best little airplane int the world. #Searey #LongIslandAirpark #LakeNorman #KIPJ #NC26

First flight out of my new airport home in my Searey amphibious plane. Just a quick hop through the pattern before landing to take a friend flying.  #throughglass   #searey   #explorenolimits   #longslandairpark   #lakenorman   Lots of talking as I taxi for take-off around the 5 minute mark, and land around the 9 minute mark.
