WHAT ARE WAVE ENGINES? Wave Engines are a class of aircraft engines that operate using pressure waves instead of rotating machinery. Intermittent combustion inside a hollow tube produces pressure waves that push hot gases and produce thrust. As a result, wave engines can operate without the use of any moving parts. This simplicity translates to a robust aviation powerplant with an unparalleled combination of performance and cost effectiveness.

A NEW AGE. In an aviation industry poised for dramatic growth driven by smaller and simpler aircraft, the lack of an affordable high-performance powerplant has been a consistent headwind. Wave Engines change everything. With jet performance and Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) in a highly cost-effective powerplant, the sky’s the limit for a new generation of aircraft.


Wave Engine Corp. hosts a unique and comprehensive set of capabilities for technology advancement and deployment:
