It's a bird. It's a plane. Or maybe a fish. Soaring high above the Tennessee landscape, it's easy to forget that the ICON A5 two-seater isn't like the others.

"It's the first spin-resistant aircraft certified by the FAA which makes it incredibly safe. It's very light and maneuverable so it's extremely responsive as you fly around," said pilot Genesah Duffy.

The ICON A5's amphibious abilities set it apart.

"Land on water, land on land. It's made for adventure," she said. 

Duffy stopped at the Smyrna airport. She's in the middle of a roadshow, towing the plane around the country, getting would-be-buyers and lookie-loos to try it out. 

The plane boasts a user-friendly cockpit, complete with parachute, navigation touchscreen, a heater, even satellite radio.

"It just goes on incredibly smooth. If it's calm conditions you can barely tell you're on the water and then once you're on the water you can basically Jet Ski around just like a boat," she said. 

The ICON Angle of Attack Tour is stopping at 19 major cities across the eastern U.S. For more information click here
