The Velocity XL has the largest cabin of all 4 seat kit aircraft. With 47.5" shoulder to shoulder, the XL is, in fact, larger than most general aviation aircraft – including most twins. With recommended engine capacity of 260 to 310 HP, expect a cruise speed of 200 knots (230 mph)... from what must be one of the world's most spacious and practical single engine aircraft! The "XL" stands for Xtra Large...and this plane is extra wide by 5.5" and extra long by 10". In addition, the pilot/co pilot height is increased by 1" and the rear seat height increased by 2". Extra fuel (up to 93 gal) to feed an extra large engine – 260 and 310 horse power. With the turbocharged models reaching speeds of 270 kts, The Velocity XL is the flagship of the Velocity line of fine airplanes
This aircraft can also be built as a fixed gear for those who are not complex rated or just want a break on insurance, while still being able to cruise over 170kts at 11 GPH.
If you are someone who needs to get where you're going in a hurry the TXL is the aircraft for you. With a twin turbocharged Continental TSIO-550 and built in oxygen you will see speeds in excess of 260 kts! While still keeping the total cost of the aircraft under $300,000 with a glass panel. (Garmin G3x) This aircraft is simply untouchable in its class.
