Jed's Trip in a Velocity XL at Big South Fork Airpark
A short video of my recent flight in Velocity Aircraft's Velocity XL kit
plane. We took it up for a spin at Big South Fork Airpark in Oneida,
Tennessee, and had a great time.
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.
Nice video set to music. Aircraft are from MeadowLake Airport in Falcon,
Colorado. Music is by Josh Joplin Group. Song is Camera One. "Great
production by 4D Solutions, Inc."

Turbo rotary in Velocity aircraft
First start with turbo installed. There
has been no tuning to the MAP table yet. I cranked it over and it started.
Forgive the artifacts as this was taken on my old phone. I am not as
close to the prop as it seems. Remember, this is before ANY
tuning.....just getting an idea of where to start following the turbo install.
