TIME: 19:30 hrs / 7.30pm
VENUE: Glenview Club, Peacockes Road, Glenview, Hamilton.
SPEAKER: Mr Paul Vickers, CEO Vickers Aircraft Company
Paul's company is out at Hamilton Airport and makes the Vickers Wave, an amphibious a/c with folding wings and a cross-over landing gear powered by a single engine with a pusher prop. Now, they are also looking at electrical powered a/c with a concept called the Wave Evtol.
Even though the Wave a/c has not flown yet, as it's still in development, Paul has already been to Oshkosh and given a series of presentations to outline to the aviation fraternity and the public just what the company has to offer.
We look forward to another chapter in the aviation heritage that has carried on at Hamilton Airport over many years and put the Waikato in the history books.
