Experience with Reinforced Plastic Primary Aircraft Structures 640034

Piper Aircraft's Development Center at Vero Beach, Florida, has combined a background of aircraft experience with a background of experience in fiberglas reinforced plastics in a venture that has yielded the first all fiberglas airplane. The past four years of experience with reinforced plastic primary aircraft structures have been beset with many interesting experiences which bridged the gap between exploratory planning and an aircraft that flew on April 30, 1962. Substantial progress has been made in the fields of plastic molding equipment, processes, and fiberglas aircraft design.
