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.

Customer Reviews
LATINVFR - MADRID LEMD P3DV4
Raul
Consider this one of LatinVFR masterpieces. First, for such a massive airport I have no FPS drop at all (PMDG737 NGXu, 747v3 and Majestic Q400 so far tested). Unlike other sceneries, the parking's with GSX and VDGS are precise, no need to modify parking position manually at all. The gates are number exactly as in Navigraph charts, so choose your parking position in GSX after landing and just follow the charts to your gate(and there are a lot of gates, a lot!). The terminals are beautifully modeled with things that are no even in the description like glass elevators moving. Night illumination while not the best I have seen, its beautiful. Its kind of compatible with ORBX global, I said "kind of" because as you enter the scenery area you can see the change in colors, its subtle but still noticeable. My only complaint if any is that this airport have around 5 towers and you can only get tower view from only one. But that's easily fix with chase plane. I do not feel like taking any stars for the small things I pointed out, so it is a 5 star scenery.
AFLOSIM - CLUJ-NAPOCA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Keith
Stunning little airport! Lots of detail and ground clutter, dirty apron; animated vehicles, birds, people, windsock, etc. The winter ice and snow effects with optional snow piles is excellent. Best feature of all is something I've never seen before in FS - the optional rainbow! (as with some of these things, can be turned on or off via the configurator). Night lighting good. Highly recommended.
BDOAVIATION - LAMEZIA TERME LICA FSX P3D
Jose
Beautiful airport, but there's an issue with the afcad. AI airplanes park where the nice static planes were placed. So you have AI on top of the static. The photo scenery is nicely done, but it doesn't play well with the freeware Italian scenery package. It does blend well with ORBX/LC/Vectors-
. You can disable some of the photo included, but god luck finding the .bgl files. They have unusual names and you will have to go through one by one. There's also a slight performance hit when viewing the terminal. Ha-
ving said all that, I think it's a beautiful looking airport even though a bit over priced even when it's on sale. Lastly I contacted support and did not receive a prompt response. If they fix the afcad, I'll revise my review.

Highly recommended for those who still fly in FSX just waiting for MSF2020. The airport and scenery around, are excellent. It really does challenge your skills as pilot, it is probably one of the most difficult approaches and landings in the world.
FSOARES - SANTAREM AIRPORT - SBSN - FSX P3DV3 P3DV4
Markus
What a beautiful little scenery this is, very well done! It features detailed modelling and crisp texturing throughout, with highly realistic looking textures. And the beauty of it, this is the case in ALL areas of the airport, from the fire station to the maintenance hangars, no area is overlooked. Adding to that, the airport is integrated flawlessly into ORBX OpenLC SA. Perfectly animated and functional SODE windsocks complement the scenery, as well as realistic looking runway lights. I've sent two suggestions for improvement to the developer, who instantly replied and agreed, taking notes for the next update. This is excellent support.
JUSTFLIGHT - PA-28-161 WARRIOR FSX
Austen
Accurate simulation of a real Piper Warrior. The aircraft model is outstanding. Having flown the actual aircraft, all the functionality is there. Even the engine sounds like the real deal. Would definitely recommend this product for anyone training on this aircraft as you are able to go through the entire real world checklist and practice stalls/emergenc-
y procedures.
FLYFREESTD - SUKHOI SU-27/27UB FLANKER-B/C FSX
Austen
Finally a Flanker that is worth purchasing! -
I've been searching for a SU-27 for FSX for a while now and have finally found a quality one. Both external and interior models are very well done. The external model has that shiny look that comes with quality models. The interior seems to be a fairly accurate representation of the real world cockpit. All the instruments and switches are in the correct Russian. My only complaint is that not all the switches are interactive, but nevertheless all the important ones are. The avionics reflect the 1980s design of this aircraft, so don't expect to navigate using modern tech. Basic nav and autopilot functions are all there along with a simple waypoint pointer. Flying the SU-27 is a welcome change compared to the typical western fighter. Can confirm you are able to perform the cobra maneuver, but make sure to turn off the AoA limiter. Ove-
rall, I would highly recommend checking this product out if you are looking for a SU-27.
