These companies or people are currently believed to be providing builder's assistance programs to get your Velocity in the air quicker. We make no claim to their abilities or value, but as a service folks might want to check them out.


Velocity Aircraft

Clearly the Velocity is at the top of the list of places that can help you get your plane built, from Head Start to completion - they can help.

What better way is there to accelerate the early construction phase of a Velocity kit
building project than by working in a fully equipped  hangar, with access to 
professional assistance when needed? The Velocity Service Center Head Start Program 
is designed to provide first time Velocity kit builders the opportunity to work on-site
with their  airplane project prior to kit shipment to their own home base. The
long-term advantages of participating in the Head Start program are amazing.  Not only
does it allow the builder to focus on the project without many of the usual 
distractions, it also allows him or her to get  organized, to learn from experienced 
building assistants, and to  develop good working habits from the start.


Sierra Bravo

Scott Baker's outfit. I really like Scott, who started at Velocity West and later was at the factory in Sebastian for many years. He runs his own assistance company from Sebastian these days.
