    Manufacturer comment: The Velocity V-Twin is designed to provide a safe and efficient transportation aircraft especially for those who fly at night, over mountains, or large bodies of water, IFR and those who just want the redundancy of a second engine to get them home or to an airport in the event of an engine failure.
