On 2 May 2016 I showed up at the factory in Sebastian, FL to take delivery of my Velocity XL-RG5 and begin 2 weeks of working on the kit with a factory technician. I had the great pleasure of working with Chad, who has been building Velocity aircraft for over 25 years. The factory staff worked 9 hour days Monday-Thursday and a half day on Friday. During my stay, I worked extra hours after closing and on the weekends. I learned a ton about fiberglass technique and made more progress on my kit than I had anticipated!
