Versatility

The Velis Club suits a wide range of uses from basic flight instruction, to glider towing, and long-range cross-country flying with unbeatable performance.
The Club is the essential element of the Velis Training System, complementing the Velis Electro and the Velis VR simulator to cover all the areas of basic and advanced pilot training. The exceptional outside visibility, together with the simple and reliable avionics suite, is ideal for pilots learning the fundamentals of VFR flying. Its heavy-duty landing gear is able to absorb even the hardest of the landings and permits routine operations from grass runways. Approved for intentional spins, the Velis Club is also perfectly suited for advanced UPRT training.

The constant-speed variable-pitch propeller brings faster cruise speeds and better fuel economy. Flying at up to 132 KTAS and offering more than 1000 km of range, this fast high-performance cruiser is a fantastic aeroplane for cross-country flying.

The Velis Club is also approved for glider towing with the addition of the optional glider tow hook.

 

Safety

The Velis Club, as an EASA type-certified aircraft, has demonstrated safety levels required by the CS-LSA regulation by successfully passing all the qualification tests. The Rotax 912 S3 engine, also EASA certified, is a proven powerplant with a vast operational history.
Based on the excellent safety characteristics of their already certified predecessors Virus SW 121 and Velis Electro, the Velis Club incorporates additional features that enhance safety beyond what certification requires, such as the multi-sensory-path stall warning system, intentional spin approval, and the Ballistic Parachute Recovery System.

The stall warning system is based on true angle of attack measurement and consists of haptic stick vibration to the pilot’s stick, an audible alarm to the headset, and a cockpit acoustic alert.

The Ballistic Parachute Rescue System by Galaxy GRS can be installed as optional equipment. The system is conceived as a second chance beyond what is required by the certification standard, and should be used when all other solutions are ineffective.

 

Cost Efficiency

The Velis Club combines the proven airframe and engine of the Virus SW 121 with the simplicity and durability of a club aeroplane, which can also be used for pilot training. The outstanding aerodynamic efficiency and robust lightweight structure of the Velis Club result in a high-performance aircraft with low fuel consumption, low cost, and low environmental footprint. Optional equipment like baggage compartment, ballistic rescue system, wheel fairings, and more, let the customizable Velis Club adapt to your budget.
