I worked with Fern when 8402 was at PAX River.

Do you have contact information for Linda. I worked with Fern when 8402 was at PAX River.

My father Marcel Blanchet was à mechanic on the CL -84 ,testing the aircraft at Patuxent naval air force base in maryland .Linda, fernand poirier is a name that i heard often.

I would like to find anyone involved in the design or testing of this aircraft. Am interested in reviving it for the 21st century. 336-422-1093

Ray, e-mail, 25.03.2018 20:41

does anyone have any info on the cockpit mainly the colors on the inside including seats and instrument panel

Massey Jones, e-mail, 03.09.2016 01:55

I was part of the CX-84 team at Canadair from the very beginning of the military testing phase to when it was cancelled.
Privacy prevents me from revealing my name.

I had the interesting task of hybridizing the analog flight simulator to incorporate a 16 bit digital computer for the aerodynamics calculations. Navigation and a simple but effective 20 line visual scene were also digitized. This significantly improved simulation fidelity and became a great confidence builder.

Due to the clever mixing box design, the aircraft was very easy to fly, and was especially easy at 30 degrees wing tilt.

If simulator hours count, I probably have more hours on the aircraft than anyone.

I watch this doing cold weather & icing tests at Uplands in 1966 while on my weather training course. The rig was also used to test De-icing on helicopters.

For those comparing this to the Osprey - it was much smaller, with a much lighter payload.

CL-84 SCS (with 3,000 shp T64 engines) cargo weight, 3,300lb VTOL 7,000lbs STOL; 16 passengers

MV-22 Osprey: internal cargo 20,000lb max, 15,000 max VTOL (15,000 lb external slung load); 24 troops

XC-142A cargo weight 4,000lb VTOL, 8,000lb STOL; 32 troops

I worked on the CL-84 mainly with the original design of the artifical feel control system but left the company in september 1966 before the design was incorporated . Any comments would be appreciated.

Does anybody know how much it cost to develop the '84? Any idea do the projected unit price?

There is a Canadair CL-84 "Dynavert" at the Western Canada Aviation Museum in Winnipeg as well.

It should be noted that the second CL84 is on display at the WESTERN CANADA AVIATION MUSEUM in Winnipeg.

I have a new hobby. I look up the patents for the tilt part and so forth. Its fun.

Considering Boeing bought and then sold Canadiar in the 1970s, I think there's no doubt that 1) some of the cl-84 technology went into the Osprey and 2) Bombardier was prohibited, when it bought Canadiar, from VTOL development. The CL-84 was a far better plane than the Osprey with none of the developmental problems (no fatalties). In an interesting aside, 1 proto was lost when the pilots (1 canadian, 1 yank) were trying to set a new world record for climb - without authoirization. The crew ejected. Along with the AVRO Arrow, another example of Canadian Governments forcing the Canadian Aerospace industry to take a trip to the prison showers with the US military-industrial complex.

I was working for the Liaison Engineering group when they built this aircraft right outside our office. Quite a feat putting this thing together. Seemed like there was a lot of "hand" work involved in the assembly.

Bill shaver, e-mail, 23.10.2009 21:09

Very interesting plane.another canadian first, woder if ardier aero space is looking at re opening this project, generating a new plane project, many potential uses in public secetor all over the world for tis type of aircraft, also expanding on its capabilities.

Johnny Bovee, e-mail, 07.11.2008 03:06

Hey, amazing aircraft...I think this VTOL maybe a better design than the Osprey the US Marines are currently using. I'm in the Naval Reserves and know the military is seriously looking at purchasing 3-4 amphibious assault vessels from the US. Seeing that we have a 'buy Canada' policy, wonder if there's a possibility this project could be started up again to supply planes for the new vessels?

good site !

Linda Poirier, e-mail, 25.09.2008 21:53

My father, Fernand Poirier was the electrical tech for this aircraft.We were transfered to Maryland U.S. for testing and he was part of the Guam team. Great aircraft!!

John Kessler, e-mail, 10.08.2008 03:01

Are they still making this aircraft? How does it compare with the Osprey? I would be interested in the XC-142 also.

Jon Alex, e-mail, 12.01.2008 06:34

Jane's All the World's Aircraft 1974-75 has a complete write-up on the CL-84-1 (the second & third prototypes), as well as the CL-84 SCS, which was the planned ASW/AEW version for the USN's Sea Control Ship program.

More info and drawings are available on this discussion board:

i am very interested in this aircraft. it was a design that should have been a great machine. i do have a question,however. i do wargaming with friends and i would like to include this aircraft. in the game, we have to develop and/or purchase our equipment just like in real life. i would like to know,if possible, the development and unit costs of this aircraft. thank you for a very informative article about it.
