Vickers Aircraft Co Wave
 
The Vickers Aircraft Company Wave is a two-seat, side-by-side configuration, high wing amphibious aircraft under development by the Vickers Aircraft Company of Hamilton, New Zealand.
 
The fuselage and wings are constructed from a combination of aluminum and carbon fibre composite materials. An automatic folding wing mechanism and ballistic parachute are planned to be integrated. The standard engine is the 180 hp (134 kW) Continental Titan 340 four-stroke powerplant, mounted in a pusher configuration.
 
It was introduced at the Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida in 2014, intended for the US light-sport aircraft category.
