Velie Monocoupe

From PlaneSpottingWorld, for aviation fans everywhere

The Velie Monocoupe was an American general aviation aircraft.

The Monocoupe was manufactured from 1927-9 by Velie Motors Corporation (founded by Willard L. Velie, maternal grandson of John Deere). It was a wood-frame, doped fabric-covered monoplane (hence the name), seating two people in an enclosed cabin.

In all there were 350 Velie Monocoupes produced. Upon W. L. Velie's death, his son had planned to continue making planes but he died within months of his father. There is a Velie Monocoupe on display at the California Science Center, on loan from the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian.
