Cathay Composite’s Aerospace department has recently unveiled its RTM multi-spar aileron.  The aileron with has an approximate length of 3400 mm, a width of 600mm and a height of 130mm forms part of the aircraft wing’s moveable trailing edge. The application of RTM integral forming technology reduces the need of hundreds of fasteners and an overall reduction in manufacturing time for an end product. A weight saving of over 25% compared to conventional civil aviation ailerons currently in operation. Carbon fibre braided tubes are used to manufacture the aileron integral structure combined with specifically designed carbon fibre braided noodles which greatly improves the manufacturing efficiency of the preform and supports a high-quality end product. The Aileron end product will now be mechanically tested for compliance.
