This add-on aircraft package for Microsoft® Flight Simulator contains five variations of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mark 1, one variation of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mark 2 and a 60-page English and French language flight manual with installation instructions and step-by-step procedures (PDF format).

The Avro Arrow remains the stuff legends are made of many years after all prototypes were ordered destroyed just before the aircraft could fulfill its intended role as a new type of high-altitude interceptor against long-range enemy bombers during the Cold War.

The Arrow was a revolutionary aircraft and certainly one of the most advanced of its time. It used computer control and "fly by wire" technology and was capable of flying over Mach 2.0.

The Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow for Flight Simulator is a chance to experience first hand the sheer performance of a series of aircraft whose advanced systems and cockpit ergonomics were quite a challenge for the test pilots who flew them fifty years ago.

Your CF-105 Arrow addon will allow you to fly at high altitudes at twice the speed of sound, simulate the procedures required during test flights or reconnaissance and interception missions, and even test the anticipated performance of the mighty Orenda PS-13 "Iroquois" engine that was being installed in the Arrow Mark 2 (RL-206) at the time the Arrow program was cancelled.

Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow Add-on Aircraft Description

The Xtreme Prototypes Arrow add-on aircraft package contains five variations of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mk. 1 equipped with two Pratt & Whitney J75-P-5 turbojet engines (serial numbers 25201 to 25205) and one variation of the Avro CF-105 Arrow Mk. 2 equipped with two mighty Orenda PS-13 "Iroquois" turbojet engines (serial number 25206).

Each aircraft is highly detailed and has been carefully modeled based on available archive material in order to conform as closely as possible to the real-world Avro Arrow.

The airplanes feature different reflective textures, unique markings, movable control surfaces (horizontal stabilizer, vertical stabilizer/rudder and speed brakes), fully animated engine turbine and compressor disks and engine nozzles (petals), extendable landing gear, two movable canopies with cockpit details, pilot/copilot and animated parts.

All aircraft feature a dozen special visual effects such afterburner flames, engine smoke, wing vortices and aircraft lights.

The real Avro CF-105 Arrow was an all-weather, high-altitude interceptor aircraft, designed and built by the A.V. Roe Aircraft Company of Canada (Avro Canada), as the culmination of a design study that began in 1953, during the Cold War.

The Arrow was a two-seat, twin-engine aircraft. It featured a delta wing design that had the advantage of allowing for the wing's leading edge to remain behind the shock wave created by the aircraft's nose when flying at supersonic speeds.

The Arrow (Mk. 1) was capable of reaching Mach 2 with the Pratt & Whitney J75 turbojet engines. The aircraft was expected to break all speed records when the more powerful Orenda PS-13 "Iroquois" engines were installed.

Fully Functional 3D Virtual Cockpits

Each Arrow add-on aircraft model comes with a fully functional virtual cockpit which contains over 900 parts and nearly 200 animated gauges, switches, levers, light indicators and flight instruments. Each VC has been meticulously created to conform as closely as possible to the cabin of the real CF-105 Arrow and to allow a total 3D immersion into the Avro Arrow flying environment.
 

The full 3D gauges have been carefully designed and modeled based on the original analog instruments found in the real Arrow during the 1950s. Virtually all devices in the cockpits are functional and behave like the original ones found in the real-world Avro Arrow.

The Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow package contains two different virtual cockpits corresponding to different time periods or aircraft configurations.

Each Arrow add-on aircraft comes with one main instrument panel and a number of secondary panels. In addition, the default FS 2D (Garmin) GPS panel is available to the desktop pilot.

The VC has cockpit spotlights and backlit instrument panels that are lit when the cockpit and/or panel lighting switches on the right side panel are turned on.

The Arrow's instrument panels are complex and in order for the desktop pilot to familiarize him/herself with the many different panels, special "tooltips" (or captions) have been integrated within virtually every device found in the cockpit. Simply move the cursor over a gauge with the mouse and its name will appear. Therefore, each panel can be used as a learning tool for understanding the different panel configurations and the complex operation of the Avro Arrow.

Another interesting feature of the VC is the possibility to render the canopy "invisible" to create the impression that the aircraft is equipped with a "bubble" glass canopy. Though not realistic in the case of a real Arrow mission, the "invisible" canopy gives more visibility to the virtual pilot (especially during landing) and allows him or her to admire the landscape.

Arrow Pilot's Operating Instructions (Manual)

The Xtreme Prototypes CF-105 Arrow aircraft package comes with a comprehensive 60-page user manual inspired from original Avro aircraft manuals (PDF format, Adobe® Reader® 8.0 or later required).

The manual, available in both English and French, contains the necessary information for the installation and operation of the CF-105 Arrow virtual aircraft, 3D cockpits and associated instrument panels.

The end-user is authorized to print copies of the manual for his/her own use, in conjunction with the add-on simulation software. The best way to keep the manual handy for easy reference during flight is to organize it in a durable presentation binder.

David
Very good model and works really perfect. Will like to have the GPS changeable with GTN750 from PMS50 . Some cool options like the side cargo door and the mechanical to digital switchable attitude Indicator.

Les
This bird has great potential but has some glaring issues that need patching: 1. Oversized model when sitting next to comparable aircraft 2. Uses the default G36 sounds (this trend needs to stop) 3. Night lighting needs to be improved. Cockpit too dark, no taxi lights, and landing lights don't extend far enough when viewed from the cockpit 4. Knobs in the cockpit reversed like the parking brake This will be a great add-on if patched. We'll see how this new developer does going forward.
MILVIZ - KA350I P3D V4.5 V5
Martino
Hard to suggest this aircraft as a good buy when there's no manual that shows the exact V speeds and aircraft's behavior at different altitudes. There's no way of knowing if this model even follows the real KA350i's performance, although it seems it does not. At initial climb, the real KA350i is able to pitch up to 2,000 / 2,500 ft/m, this one struggles to maintain 170 knots above 1,000 ft/m! The ITT goes up to max immediately and appears to be extremely sensitive. For some reason, after each flight, the engines are in need of full maintenance (?!). The KA350i should be able to fly at 263 KIAS, this one goes up to 180 and then struggles to go past that speed. . . why?? Is this Milviz's interpretation of how the aircraft is designed to work and essentially just poor execution and a rush job? Milviz has abandoned all customer support in Prepa3D and so good luck asking questions and getting any attention or any patch to make this model a real study level. For the cost, this is not even close to a real King Air 350i.

What an amazing little plane if its looks dont charm you the flight model will. The smoke affect works and is on point, using flaps settings to change the colours is nice and easy. Just remember to count the clicks. Ther-
e are some nice little Easter eggs in the plane rewards you for looking around and clicking, not going to spoil the surprise. Th-
e textures are very nice have a good selection of liveries to choose from, works nicely in vr. the plane has had a good flow of updates and the dev seems very committed to keeping this plane upto date and bug fix. For the money well worth it have spent a lot of hours rolling around the sky in it.

Nice work but definitely not completed. All the southern part of the aerodrome has never been designed (even if promised), nor updates where issues in the last 9 months at all. Even their support is disappointing, I tried to ask about the promised developments via email, never received an answer.

Couldn't expect more about quality and price. Texture and reality are perfect. Worth a penny!!!

Very well-designed airport! Ground textures are nice and "dirty", gates dock well, there is interior terminal modeling in the international terminal (not in the domestic), and the landside areas are nicely done. No glitches or bugs noticed so far. I was at VVTS in 2015, and visiting there with this scenery does feel immersive and reminds well of being there. A worthwhile purchase and good value for the price!
