Velum is a propeller-driven civilian four/five-passenger aircraft, designed and manufactured by a made-up in-game American company JoBuilt , based on the real company Peterbilt.
JoBuilt Velum represents a typical propeller plane plane, designed for a long flights with a few passenger, for expeditions. The plane was initially designed for transporting only three passengers and one driver, but Rockstar, when developing DLC "Heists", had to to introduce a five-seater variant of the aircraft, because four player and Maxim Rashkovansky couldn't fit into a single Velum. The five-seater variant of JoBuilt Velum can not be obtained in singleplayer, and four-seater variant of the plane. The Velum with capacity of four can be obtained easily through at A17 hangar at Los Santos Internation Airport.
JoBuilt Velum is equipped with a powerful motor combined with a big propeller, which is enough to make the plane with the weight of five tons achieve a high speed. Of course, Velum can't compete with powerful, jet planets, let alone military fighters, yet it is one of the best in it's class, falling behind only before Western Mallard, but, unlike Mallard, and can carry up to four (or five) man on board. It is hard to say anything special about it's "endurance", toughness, as it is handles gunfire and hits well, but nothing outstanding.
JuBuilt Velum is modelled after TBM 850, Piper PA-46, Piper PA-31.
