Note: This node has been re-titled from its original name. Velocity Aircraft is the company that makes the Velocity
, described below.
A homebuilt aircraft available in kit form from Velocity Aircraft (www.velocityaircraft.com). It is a four-place, canard, pusher aircraft. It is available in both fixed and retractable gear versions and several different sizes. It is also available in a quick-build kit. The original designer was Danny Maher. He started Velocity Aircraft in 1984 to sell plans and kits. Subsequently, he sold out to Duane Swing and his son Scott who now own and run the company.
It has an excellent reputation for stability and ease of piloting. The company has a reputation for excellent builder support. I am strongly considering building one of them myself, probably from their quick-build kit.
