The commercial aerospace industry is poised for some exciting changes. As the industry prepares for a new round of major program launches, including a potential Boeing NMA (New Midsize Airplane), the question of where and how composites will be applied is on entire composites industry’s mind.

CW recently released a special edition, in collaboration with Additive Manufacturing and Modern Machine Shop, dedicated to the advanced materials and process that will likely play a role in Next-Gen Aerospace.

Topics include resin infusion of wing structures, resin transfer molding of door surrounds, advances in thermoplastic composites and more.

Check out a preview here: 


Coming soon CW will release a CW Talks podcast dedicated to the topic, offering a summary of what the editorial team learned while conducting research for the issue. Stay tuned.


  • Advanced materials for aircraft interiors

    Applications aren't as demanding as airframe composites, but requirements are still exacting — passenger safety is key.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.

  • Boeing 787 Update

    Approaching rollout and first flight, the 787 relies on innovations in composite materials and processes to hit its targets
