Carbon and glass-fibre profiles in unmanned flight
In flight, fibre-reinforced plastics have been used for quite some time now. The majority of the structural components of modern aeroplanes are these days made of composite materials. Particularly the good mechanical properties combined with the low weight enable a considerable reduction in weight.
Weight has always been a determining factor. In view of increasingly expensive fuel and environmental pollution, this will become an ever more important issue.
The more common and typical applications can be found below. Click on the illustration for more detailed information.« Back
