Flight Test describes the work of the author’s late father, Ralph William Waechter, and those with whom he worked at Avro Aircraft Limited

The book reproduces and explains key excerpts from documents that Ralph Waechter retained after leaving the company. Among these documents was a report on the Avro Arrow’s highest speed flight, the book also provides information on the Avro Jetliner and the CF-100

The Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow was a delta-winged interceptor aircraft designed and built by Avro Canada. The Arrow is considered to have been an advanced technical and aerodynamic achievement for the Canadian aviation industry. The CF-105 held the promise of near-Mach2 speeds at altitudes of 50,000 feet (15,000 m) and was intended to serve as the RCAF primary interceptor in the 1960s and beyond
