ICON Aircraft Spin Resistance

Recently published on YouTube, this video explains ICON Aircraft's spin resistant design elements. Their press release announced that their A5 will be the first production aircraft in history to be designed to and completely meet the Federal Aviation Administration's full-envelope Part 23 spin-resistance standards once production starts (although it is not a Part 23 certified aircraft). They comment that this is a tremendous safety advancement that can significantly reduce the number of loss-of-control accidents resulting from stall/spin scenarios, which are the most significant cause of fatal General Aviation accidents. Thanks to Sam DeBartolo for bringing this to my attention.
