Touch the Sky: The Story of Avro Canada


A pioneer in aircraft manufacturing, Avro Canada Ltd. was most recognized for its Avro Arrow aircraft—a model intended to serve the Royal Canadian Air Forces. Highly debated in government for its cost and national defence implications, Prime Minister Diefenbaker cancelled the production of the Avro Arrow in 1959. Adapted from the 2019-2020 exhibition at the Diefenbaker Canada Centre, this online exhibit tells the story of Avro Canada’s creation and its impact on the world of aeronautics and technology.
