No other kit aircraft offers the performance, comfort and superior aesthetics of the standard Velocity. The XL is basically the SE, but everything is just that little bit larger. Extra head room, extra length and the opportunity for larger fuel capacity and engine choices.
You don’t land in this aircraft – you arrive in it. Ramp appeal; head turner; call it what you like. Most importantly, it’s not another RV.
The Velocity’s stall-proof and spin-proof aerodynamic stability is one of its strongest assets. Quite simply, the canard wing stalls before the main wing does; this drops the nose so that aviation may continue without those annoying squealing sounds. Good stuff.
Featuring easy-entry dual gull-wing doors, the XL accommodates 260 to 310 HP powerplants, providing a cruise of from 190 to 250+ knots, depending on horsepower, propeller pitch and landing gear selected. This XL kit is available with fixed or retractable gear, and also the opportunity to go from a 4-seater (all bucket seats) to a 5-seater (rear bench seat replaces the back two bucket seats). The ‘Dash-5’ upgrade does more that swap put the back seats – you get beefier undercarriage and an extra 200 pounds of useful load.
