Composite Durability


Recommended Posts

I am new to the canard zone. I am considering upgrading from my piper to a canard design. I have alot to learn before I will feel confident in making a purchase. I'm concerned about the durability and the longevity of a composite structure. In the event that the a/c can't be hangered and will spend a considerable amount of time exposed to the elements, especially direct sun exposure, what, if any problems have been encountered? Do I need to be concerned about this?

Dean,

think about all the composite-built boats you see around in the harbours...

No reason to worry!
