RE: REFLECTOR: Sport Aviation - Velocity


John's been very patient about getting all of the known, and potentially 
problematic, bugs worked out.  He finally got all of his insurance 
paperwork and hopes to get his checkout ride with Scott Baker early next 
week (gotta get the pilot ready too!).  This means that maybe by the end of 
next week he'll finally do his official first flight.  He's It looks like

That is a good article on Tim's Velocity. There is also a write up in issue

I'm looking forward to hearing more information on the factory's work on 
NACA scoop cooling. I'd like to incorporate something like that into my V-6 
It sounds like Tim will have some V-6 company at velocity flyins soon, I
should be done by the end of the year ( dreamer!), Dennis is working away 
his. I haven't heard much about John Kiss's project lately, at least his is 
rolling under it's own power!  Dennis and I are going full out on the 
( aluminum block, custom crank, rods, fuel system, etc). That should 
a pretty good test base for future V-6 Velocity considerators.
Well, Back to the hangar!
