The first Velocity took to the sky in 1985 and followed with its public debut at the Sun-N-Fun Fly-in at Lakeland, Florida, in early 1986. The Velocity made quite an impression, and kits for this four-place canard-design pusher were served up like hotcakes. Construction is all-composite, and the systems are simple with no complex jigs or advanced tooling necessary.
