Avro Canada and the Legendary Arrow

The is the story of Avro Canada and the legendary Arrow.  The Avro Arrow was an extraordinary aircraft that was 20-30 years ahead of its time.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned was just how advanced Avro Canada was in their designs. They had plans for planes that would have Canada as a forerunner in aviation for years to come. The questions about what could have been in our future, are fascinating.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

During the development of the Arrow, the team at Avro Canada was the best in the world. They pushed the boundaries of technology and science. We as Canadians, should be very proud of this heritage, and always remember what we can accomplish when we work together.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

When I think about the people that worked at Avro Canada, I think about how they were always challenging themselves to do better, and learn new things. I too, am always pushing myself to learn new things and take on new challenges. I believe there is a lot to be learned from our past.
