Welcome Velocity Enthusiasts
The Velocity Owners and Builders Association (VOBA) is dedicated to the safe building and flying of Velocity Aircraft. VOBA will promote the interests of Velocity owners and builders and represent our type of aircraft in the larger aviation community.
VOBA is a member of the Type Club Coalition (TCC). The TCC was started by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) for the purpose of sharing information among the various aircraft-specific organizations.
The Velocity Owners and Builders Association encourages you to check out all useful sources of information on Velocity Aircraft, such as the factory's web site, the Velocity Wiki, the Facebook group, and the Reflector archive.
The Velocity Dinner at Oshkosh
Join us for the Velocity Dinner on Wednesday at AirVenture Oshkosh.
Our annual gathering at Oshkosh has become so big and popular that we have moved it to a catered location. (Same as last year.)
- It is close to the AirVenture show, at the SOS Brothers "beer balloon."
- Easy walk; near parking and bus stops.
- We will ll have a private tent, with tables and chairs
- Cash bar located adjacent to our dinner site
The price is the same as last year: $30 per person. Early registrations cost just $20 if paid by July 13th. The gathering starts at 5:00 pm and includes dinner at 6pm. We can use the tent through 9pm.

Flying your Velocity into Oshkosh
Twenty-year Oshkosh veteran and 2-time Velocity builder, Mark Riley shows us everything a Velocity owner needs to know about the greatest airshow on earth. He covers everything: trip planning, the arrival procedure, parking, and departing. You'll learn the keys to parking on "Velocity Row" and how to avoid (the usually mandatory) taxiing in the grass.
Flying your Velocity into the world's biggest airshow is an experience you will always remember, but getting there is just half the fun. With your plane on the showgrounds, you'll have hundreds of questions about your Velocity from pilots, builders, and dreamers. And AirVenture Oshkosh is where the largest gathering of Velocity enthusiasts happens each year at the Velocity dinner.
We are expecting a record turnout of Velocities this year. Plan to fly into Oshkosh and be a part of this historic event!
