Abbott Aerospace has been qualifying composite aircraft for flight and certification for over a decade. We have worked on many composite aircraft programs and have a wide experience of materials, processes, design approaches and substantiation.
We have designed and qualified composite aircraft from concept to flight. We have selected the appropriate materials and defined company process specification to enable our clients to manufacture parts and sub assemblies efficiently and with confidence.
We have designed and qualified aircraft sub assemblies built using pre-impregnated laminated composites, wet laminate materials and VARTM.

The methods and information we employ are always referenced to a credible official sources that we supply to our clients.
We have completed composite development work on certified part 23 and part 25 aircraft. Completed STC packages for modifications to composite aircraft. We have helped companies with composite manufacturing non conformities and in service repair work.
We have taken responsibility for the engineering aspects for multiple complete flying composite prototype aircraft.
We are comfortable working with experimental, part 23, part 25 and part 27 standards.
