Design and development

The Wave is a two-seat, side-by-side configuration, high wing amphibious aircraft. 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.[2][3]

The standard engine is the 180 hp (134 kW) Continental Titan 340 four-stroke powerplant, mounted in a pusher configuration.[2]

The aircraft is intended for the US light-sport aircraft category.[2]
