Test Flights Complete - A Worlds First!
Vickers has achieved what others only dream about.
The Vickers WAVE has successfully completed our flight testing program (FTP).
The WAVE performed exceptionally well, so well in fact that we believe we may have achieved a world-first, a 100% score, passing all criteria and requiring zero changes. Meaning the prototype is perfect and can enter production, first components are underway.
"In conducting a Flight Test Plan on the Vickers Wave proof of concept, an evaluation was made of the plane's adherence to ASTM Light Sport Aircraft standards. Controllability, maneuverability, stability, stall, and water handling were tested throughout the CG envelope. The test points included those that are routinely difficult for manufacturers to pass, and the Wave passed these with margin. The results lend confidence to the opinion that, when it comes time for certification, the Vickers Wave will demonstrate compliance to all flight characteristics and performance requirements.”

"It is now with the utmost confidence we can confirm that the WAVE will achieve our original performance goal of a 120knot cruise. This allows the Wave to not only compete directly with leading GA aircraft but to take you beyond the restraint’s current aircraft offer. With the Wave, previous pusher amphibian compromises are now benefits, offering unobstructed visibility, high cruise speeds, and a 750lb useful load all with folding wings and the ability to travel further and land where others cannot, a true adventure plane and the ultimate Light Sport Aircraft".

The WAVE at 6000' in full stall. We tested the CG range to the aft limit of 30%, all stalls were aft stick-limited, meaning no aerodynamic stall occurred. This results in a very docile and predictable aircraft.
