Aerospace engineers and industry leaders have long pursued the advantages of composite structures over traditional materials. Composites are now a vital part of the construction of everything from commercial aircraft to rotorcraft to unmanned drones and even rockets.

Composite structures are increasingly incorporated into military, freight, and commercial aerospace vehicles under lightweighting programs that reduce fuel needs and cost, lower emissions, improve use-life and durability, and create the next generation of more efficient air travel.
