First Flight of Millin Velocity N114MV
Inaugural flight of our Velocity XL/FG. The aircraft took 12 years to
complete. I am a slow builder.
Many, many thanks to my good friends that helped me along the way. It has
been an incredible journey.
Glasair 1RG Fly By 260 MPH - Subaru EG33 Motor
Father-In-Law's first flight in a Glasair aircraft powered by a Subaru
Alcyone SVX EG33 six cylinder 202 cubic inch engine. He had never before
experienced any "G Loads" and handled them well. Watch us make a high speed

Lots of power for a high density altitude.

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.
Geared Drives 200Z PSRU For Subaru
At the time this was the worlds only Subaru on an RV9A using a hydraulic
constant speed prop. This prototype unit has all of the same features of
the original Geared Drives PSRU including its own oil reservoir, oil pump
and filtration system, drive port for hydraulic prop governor, and flywheel
and centrifugal clutch assembly. This airplane with the P2 prototype Geared
Drives PSRU can be seen at Sun n Fun Air Show, Lakeland, FL, April 21-26,
2009. Look for the Geared Drives booth N52 for directions the aircraft

This sube engine runs so smooth its unreal!
Homebuilt airplane with Subaru motor + 3 turbos for high altitude flying
Subaru ej22 car motor with 3 turbo
chargers and a burn box. Petrol goes by hot Exhaust to vaporize it - the burn box air is
direct from one turbo unit. When you
turn on petrol in the chamber and ignited the hot Exhaust is mixed with motor Exhaust to run the other turbo chargers that one needs at high elevation
(10,000 m. altitude plus).
I likes song Blinded by Science because forward view is not so good because
of the "science". ha, ha.

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.
