Default A project no more....

...cuz today, Velocity SE, N17010 with a Mazda 13b turbo rotary engine was granted its Special Airworthiness Certificate.

Wahoo, Yippy and YEA.

100 nautical mile radius surrounding Ellington Field (EFD) in Houston. When out of Phase One, and properly equipped, night and IFR.

OMG, I may now actually have to go out and fly this thing.....no, not a thing, airplane.

Yep, what the dancing banana is designed for

Good for ya Chris. Now the really exciting part starts. Make sure it is not too- exciting . If you are in doubt about something, or something does not feel right, don't do it. Will be looking forward to flight test reports.
Good Luck
