The hangar doors opened for the Family Day long weekend at the Edenvale Aerodrome. The results were above and beyond what was expected, from the amount of visitors, to their collected stories. Every visitor had a memory, emotional and personal attachment to the Avro Arrow project.

Families came out to celebrate the plane that changed Canadian Aviation and made history. Tears of joy, and sadness as they recalled their family members learning about the “Black Friday” day. Their children and their grandchildren saw the scaled to size replica that simply WOWed beyond expectations.

Young teenagers with ambitions to become pilots were blown away with the HIOWA helicopter, and the F-120 Simulator. Over 200 visitors came out this weekend, and we could not have been more thrilled to be able to share and show the fantastic replica Avro Arrow 203.
