 The Company




Model Military Number Name
1950   CF-100 Canuck


Model Military Number Name
1949     Orenda
In 1945, Avro Aviation Ltd was formed in Canada as part of the Hawker Siddeley Group following acquisition of Victory Aircraft Ltd of Ontario.

One of the most significant products of Avro Canada was the CF-100, the first aircraft to be completely designed and built in Canada.  Avro Canada also produced aircraft engines including the Orenda and Iroquois.

Avro Canada did not survive the failed Avrocar "flying saucer" and cancelled CF-105 Arrow.  Avro Canada's gas turbine division became Orenda Engines.
