ICON A5 IPC : Introduction : ICON Aircraft System List
ICON Aircraft System List
The IPC is organized according to the ICON Aircraft System List that breaks down the aircraft into an organized set of system.
Physical Item Description
Complete Aircraft
Requirements/Compliance Tracking, Weight and Balance, Aircraft Data Sheet, Aircraft External Loads, Flutter Analysis
Doors and Windows
Nose landing gear door (having a hinge or physical attachment/restraint).Windows include: the windshield canopy consisting of transparency, frame and removable side windows; and fixed aft windows.Includes items such as: associated door/window structure, transparencies, hinges, latching mechanisms, handles, gas struts, seals, controls, and any integral handholds.
Electrical and Lighting
Electrical - Those electrical units and components which generate, control and supply DC electrical power for other systems or subsystems, including generators, relays and batteries through the secondary busses. Also includes: common electrical items such as switches, connectors, wiring, 12 VDC and USB accessory power outlets, keyed ignition switch and bilge pump. Lights - Those units and components (electrically powered) which provide for external and internal illumination such as landing lights, taxi lights, position lights, rotating lights, passenger reading and cabin dome lights, warning lights for individual systems or self -illuminating signs.
Environmental Control
Those units and components which furnish a means of heating, cooling and/or ventilate the internal volumes of the fuselage. Includes: cabin heating unit with liquid transfer lines to engine radiator, cabin fresh air eyeball vents, ducts, scoops and water/air separator.
Equipment and Furnishings
Those fixed and removable items of equipment and furnishings contained in the cockpit and baggage compartment. Typical parts are: seats, shoulder harnesses, seat belts, instrument panel and console components with instrument mounting provisions, interior cover panels and trim, miscellaneous storage compartments, and associated attachment brackets and hardware.
Flight Controls
Those units and components which furnish a means of manually controlling the flight attitude characteristics of the aircraft, including items such as: control stick and grip, rudder pedals with means to mount and apply braking control forces to the master brake cylinder(s), aerodynamic surface control cables, pulleys and pushrods. Also includes the functioning and maintenance aspects of the flaps, spoilers, water rudder retraction and control and other control surfaces, but does not include the structure which is covered in other systems.
Those units and components which store and deliver fuel to the engine. Includes fuel pump and any associated emergency cutoff device, fuel tank, shutoff valve, filler hose/line and cap, fuel distribution tubes and hoses. Does not include fuel flow rate sensing, transmitting and/or indicating, which are covered in the Instruments system.
Fuselage and Vertical Tail
Structural units and associated components and members which make up the fuselage, cockpit, hull and keel, ballast provision, water rudder and water rudder guard, Seawings™, center wing section, IPS riser attachment(s), engine cowl and vertical tail including the air rudder and its hinges and counterbalance. Includes: skins, bulkheads, ribs, fuselage -to-wing fillets, door/canopy jambs, as well as integral or mounted aircraft hand-holds, tie downs and mooring cleats, access panels for inspection and/or equipment access, mid, forward, and aft wing pin receptacles, and firewall structure with thermal protection material(s) as required.
Horizontal Tail
Horizontal tail includes the structure of the elevator control surface. Includes: skins, ribs, webs, hinges and counterbalance.
All sensors, indicating instruments, flight data recorder, navigation and communication units. Includes pitch trim indicator, Hobbs meter, RF antennae and cabling, communication equipment controls, headset jacks, intercom switches and auxiliary microphone input jack. Angle of Attack indicating includes the sensor and pitot-static ports and associated hose/tubing if pneumatically driven. Landing Gear Indicating – those units including position indicating and warning subsystems. Engine Indicating - Those units, components and associated subsystems which control, indicate or analyze the operation of the engine which are external to the engine system, fuel flow rate sensing, transmitting and/or indicating, and not integral to the engine assembly or covered in the Propulsion system.
Landing Gear
Those units and components which furnish a means of supporting and steering and stopping the aircraft on the ground and make it possible to retract and store the landing gear. Includes: wheels and tires, hydraulic components and hose/tubing, linkages, brakes, and parking brake handle and actuation mechanism. \Also includes the functioning/rigging and maintenance aspects of the nose landing gear door.
Placards and Markings
Those placards and markings, internal and external, required for general and emergency information, operating instructions, ground servicing instructions and inspections, cautions, warnings, airworthiness certificate location (and holder), company logos and model identification graphics; interior component paint, finishes and surface coverings; the exterior paint color scheme, associated graphics and N-numbers and the Seawing non-slip step area surface finish.
The Rotax engine assembly, ECU and Fuse Box, engine mount(s), induction air intake and associated filtering device, exhaust pipe and muffler(s). throttle position/control mechanism, extension shaft, propeller and spinner. Those units and components to control and direct the flow of lubrication and cooling fluids between the engine and heat exchangers. Including water and oil radiators, oil tank, coolant overflow tank, cylinder head cooling air intake and all associated ducting, hoses and tubing.
Outer wing structural units, associated components and members which support the aircraft in flight. Includes: spars, skins, ribs, flap and aileron structures and counterbalances, control surface hinges; integral or mounted aircraft/wing hand-holds, tie downs and mooring cleats; access panels for inspection and/or equipment access, mid, forward, and aft wing pins, and the landing gear position verification mirror.
Wing Fold Mechanism
Those devices which facilitates and/or controls the on-ground movement of the main wing structure and securing of wings for transport in the folded position. Includes mechanisms, linkages, actuators, locks and indicating/warning subsystems. Also includes the horizontal tail removable or hinged tip. Excludes mid, forward, and aft wing pins & receptacles, which are included in the Wing & Fuselage systems.
ICON Parachute System (IPS)
The parachute package, risers, extraction rocket, and necessary mounting brackets (if not integral to the Fuselage and Vertical Tail), means of landing gear deployment and the IPS actuation device and associated hardware.
