The Velocity represents the
latest in trike design. The Velocity engineers have place a great
deal of emphasis on ergonomics for both pilot and passenger as
well as strength and durability.
A special beam running
longitudinally along the interior of the entire fairing not only
makes room for the passenger's feet, but also increases the
rigidity of the fairing, which is important for this type of
fairing since the surface area is so large.
The load-carrying frame of the
trike is made of rectangular tubes of aircraft alloy D16T 60 x 40
x 2 reinforced by a rectangular tube 54 x 34 x 2; the seat frame
is made of the tube D16T 32 x 2. All load-carrying fittings are
made according to aircraft technologies of tubes and plates of 30
HGSA steel. This work is done in close cooperation with the
Antonov factory and Aviant Kiev plant.
The trike wings that are
produced by Aeros the Stranger, Stream, Still and the Profi have
firmly taken their place in the ultralight market and have made an
excellent name for themselves in all possible applications.
A small windshield partially
protects the pilot from wind without affecting forward
line-of-sight. The instrument panel of the Velocity is recessed
into the fairing and painted with special antiglare paint. A
folding pylon makes it possible to one person attach the wing onto
the trike. For increased reliability and safety of the design,
there is a stainless steel cable inside the pylon.
The main landing gear shape
combined with automobile shock absorbers makes it possible to fly
from and land on unimproved fields. This also increases safety on
rough landings, and makes steering much more comfortable.
Aeros engineers have designed a
range of engine mounts the include the Rotax 503, Rotax 582,
Rotax 912, BMW, Subaru.
