"The Velum is a high-performance single-engine light aircraft manufactured specifically to fulfill the needs of executive travel because, let's face it, that's the only investment in aviation that happens these days."
Elitás Travel description.

The Jobuilt Velum is a fixed-wing aircraft in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, taking the form of a light propeller driven, single-engine monoplane.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The design of the aircraft is mostly a combination between the TBM 85 and the Piper PA-46 Malibu Meridian, with an empennage similar to that of a Piper PA-31 Navajo, and the Cessna 414. It has, in addition to the two pilot and co-pilot seats, two more passenger seats in the back, and therefore two more other people can fit in the plane. They will teleport inside, as there are no back doors.

The Velum spawns with an array of color combinations, being the primary one for the upper side of the fuselage, the wings and the tail section, while the secondary one is applied to the lower side of the fuselage, the wing tips and the upper section of the tail. The stripe seen on the fuselage is actually classed as the "wheel" color. Black portions can be seen on the front face of each wing.

The Velum bears a registration number in the rudder and the right wing. Said registration is "N-LS" and one of the four combinations of numbers, being: 281, 342, 782 and 894.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Velum is also one of the fastest light aircraft in the game, having a top speed just below that of the Mallard. It is a decently maneuverable aircraft, and it has very responsive turning and handling. Its long wingspan may prevent it from being as agile as other planes in the game, but it is very stable in flight. It does, however, need a relatively long stretch of land in order to take off. Its durability is average, as it can take a modest amount of gunfire before its engine fails and it becomes unflyable. 

Given its speed and capability to carry four passengers, it is a fairly good crew transport vehicle in Grand Theft Auto Online, being faster than the average helicopter, even although obviously less versatile.

Although the Velum appears to have a turboprop powerplant, the engine sound reflects that of a piston powerplant, like those of the Duster and the Mallard.
