Welcome to my experimental aircraft Web site. Well it all started by watching friends build planes at our local airport CZGF. I was looking for a 4 place aircraft and found a Velocity XLRG on Barnstormers. This kit was just what I wonted. The kit being partially built made the decision easy to pick it up from a builder in Lynwood Washington. I had to do a little work on the house to have a warm dry place to work on the kit.
So far I’m having fun working on the kit and will be extremely happy once it is in the air. I will try to explain my steps in construction to help other with their kits. I have looked at other web sites in the construction of their Velocities and it has helped me a lot in the understanding and the construction of my plane. Do enjoy the site and I will try to up date weekly on the progress of my kit. I would like give a big Thanks to Cynthia for getting me into aviation as this was always a dream of mine to build and fly a home built aircraft.
