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.
