AVRO Arrow Replica (RL-203)

The Canadian Air & Space Museum (formerly The Toronto Aerospace Museum) commenced building a full size museum quality replica of the AVRO Arrow (CF-105) in 1998. I started working on the replica during the summer of 2000. In October 2006, the replica of Arrow #25203 was rolled out in time for the 49th anniversary of the rollout of the original.

The museum was where Canada's first satellite (Allouette 1) was assembled. I spent a couple of years making a replica of that. The museum building was also the birthplace of the Chipmunk, Beaver, Otter, and other aircraft ... and what became SPAR Aerospace.

Information about the Arrow, and The Canadian Air & Space Museum (C.A.S.M.), and the future of the museum when known, can be found at the museum web site: http://casmuseum.org/


Chairman's Message


The Canadian Air & Space Museum is pleased to confirm discussions with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) regarding the potential opening of a revitalized Museum in an outstanding new location which will allow for vastly improved access for residents and visitors to the Greater Toronto Area.

The Greater Toronto Airport Authority, along with several airport based private businesses including Flight Solutions and Services, Partner Jet, UYJ Air & MxAerospace are together providing interim storage of the Museum’s important artifacts and archival material while potential development opportunities within the Greater Toronto Airport Authority’s site are explored.

No binding commitments have been made at this time. However the Museum Trustees and the GTAA are evaluating opportunities to preserve and present Toronto’s aviation past which includes watershed achievements at both the Malton and Downsview airports. All the parties share a belief that Toronto’s many aviation and space contributions to Canada’s rich history should be presented in innovative and exciting ways for the enjoyment and educational benefit of future generations.

Ian A. McDougall
Chairman
For the Board of Directors
