Velocity Owners and Builders Association (VOBA)

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.

ANR Headsets and ADSB static . . . I received the headsets back from the manufacturer today.  The boxes had paperwork on what was done.  . . . I couldn't see how these things could have been causing the static.  I took them out to the plane and tested them.  There was no change.  The static was still there and as loud as before.. . . 
 
Towbar Pin . . . Some builders have installed a pin on their nose gear that allows for a towbar to connect to the fork so that the owner or an FBO can connect a tug (or car) to move the airplane. Pilots can use their own car to pull the airplane over to the fueling pit to refuel without having to start up the airplane. . . . 
 
First Flight . . .First flight of N735D at FYJ. Calm winds, cool temperatures, and unlimited visibility. A few squawks to fix and . . . .

Year 4-5 of Building a Velocity

 
 
Builders Reiff and Melissa Lorenz have run a time-lapse camera in their workshop from the day their kit came home from the Factory's Head Start program. In this 4th installation of their video series we see lots of work on the cowl, engine, and electrical system. (A year of images are missing from the middle of this video due to a camera glitch that re-formatted the memory card.)
