Best plane, best price

The recent mention of the Avro Arrow as a replacement for Canada's CF-18s reaffirms the need for an open, fair and transparent competition. Each of the possible contenders has its supporters and detractors. The Avro Arrow has obvious hurdles to overcome in terms of timeliness and cost. As the F-35 has shown, developing an aircraft from scratch takes a great deal of time and is fraught with risks and delays. Can the Avro Arrow be developed, tested and operational by 2020-2022, in time to replace our CF-18s?
