AVRO NEWS-45th Anniversary Special Edition

On this 45th anniversary of the Roll Out of the Avro Arrow, we are excited to serve the actual Avro Newsletter of the event. This newsletter was donated by Fran Brown from the Estate of Hattie Crowe whose brother Lionel John Crowe was a member of the Arrow design team. Every Avro employee was given a copy of this publication, only a few copies have survived these 45 years!

50th SALE!

In this website we highlight factual AVRO and ARROW information, donated from aviation pioneer and aircraft designer Dr. James C. Floyd, Avro researcher, author Palmiro Campagna, and Randall Whitcomb author of the "DEFINITIVE" Avro book. Along with the cooperation of the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Professional Engineers Association of Ontario, we serve all information free to copy and distribute, as one of our goals is to show the engineering excellence, Avro and we Canadians were and are capable of, and to correct the inaccuracies that some historians have attached to the Arrow project.
