EVOLUTION OF THE VELOCITY
2012 V-Twin is introduced. Development started in October of 2011 and first flight testing started in March of 2012.
2008 And Beyond - Velocity is constantly looking to its Research and Development Department to meet the challenges of the future.
2003 - Introduction of the Velocity XL-5, an option to the popular XL model.
2000 - March marked the beginning of the 10,000 sq.ft. Velocity Service Center. The Service Center provides the builder with assistance prior to the kit being delivered. The builder works on his (or her) airplane for one week or more, with assistance from one of our technicians, to establish the skills and confidence needed to complete the airplane.
1998 - Fast-Build kit options, for fuselage and wings/canard, reduce building time by as much as 700 hours, appealing to many new Velocity kit buyers
1997 - The Velocity XL (for extra large) is introduced. With more width and length in the fuselage and room for a 260 HP engine, this quickly becomes a favorite!
1995 - Velocity Elite debuts at Sun N Fun, displaying new easy-in, easy-out gull wing doors and adjustable bucket seats. This becomes the new “standard” model Velocity.
1992 - Introduction of the big wing LW (formerly called “173”), adding a new dimension to the homebuilt category – a more docile aircraft which performs like a Cessna 172.
1990 - The option of retractable gear is introduced for Velocitys.
1985 - In Sebastian, Florida, the prototype Velocity debuts, as the first four-seat, composite airplane kit based on the Long-EZ.
