XP CF-105 Arrow v1


Our CF-105 Arrow v1 addon contains five variations of the Avro Arrow Mark 1 and one variation of the Arrow Mark 2, designed for Microsoft® Flight Simulator 2004 (compatible with FSX and Prepar3D®).

The addon includes a detailed exterior model, two fully functional 3D virtual cockpits, a flight model to simulate supersonic flight at high altitude, and a 61-page flight manual.

Please note that this addon is a legacy product offered for a limited time and for which we can no longer offer technical support.


A Classic Addon Available for Download for a Limited Time

Over the years, some of our products have become legacy due to the constant evolution of the simulation platforms or because they are being replaced by better, up-to-date products with much more features. By popular demand and for a limited time, we are now please to offer these products a very special price.

Please note that the CF-105 Arrow v1 addon is a legacy product for which we can no longer offer technical support. It is offered to collectors as is.

Experience the Dream, Fly a Legend!

The Avro CF-105 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 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 addon contains five variations of the Avro Arrow Mark 1 and one variation of the Arrow Mark 2. The highly detailed exterior model features more than 600 parts and 60 animations. The two fully functional virtual cockpits contain over 900 parts and more than 200 back and front-lit 3D gauges, lights, switches and flight instruments. A custom flight model was designed to simulate supersonic flight at high altitude in the simulator.

This addon will allow Arrow fans 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 at the time the Arrow program was cancelled.

Stephan Schneider, Plein Vol Magazine:
"I give this product (Arrow) a 90% grade especially for its realism and the quality of its design."

Computer Pilot Magazine:
"Avro CF-105 Arrow gets "Xtreme" treatment. This one should be high quality with maximum realism factor built in!"

Laurie Aston, Avsim.com:
"It faithfully reproduces the six (Arrow) prototypes that existed, and does it accurately."

Don Wilson, CF-105 Arrow fan:
"I want to thank you for such a great (Arrow) addon; I sat in the cockpit of the first Arrow and so it means a lot to me. I'm now 79 and the Flight Sim is a great thing to enjoy."
