NEW PRODUCT LINE! – TDXP Range

Aero Composites has launched a new range of products known as TDXP, which stands for Top Dressing Extra Performance. This line of products is targeted at helping top dressing operators to improve their performance and efficiency to reduce costs. The range features an electric gatebox actuator that weighs a fraction of hydraulic systems that are being used for this purpose currently. It is a plug-and-play solution since the actuator is…

Sealed Upper Cowl Plug

Ram Cowl Progress

We are currently making the tooling to manufacture our new Ram Cowls. We started with the upper cowl plug. This is made out of high density fine grain MDF. We cut slices of MDF to shape with our CNC router and bond them together to form the plug. The next picture shows the profiles bonded together. The next picture shows the plug sealed with epoxy ready to receive a coat…

NEW PRODUCT! Cresco Carbon Composite Ram Air Cowls

Together with Aero Design we have been developing a new carbon composite ram air cowl for the Cresco. The PT6 engine was always designed for ram air to provide added efficiency. The first ram air cowl model we developed incorporates an air inlet filter with no inertial particle separator targeting day VFR operations in restricted category. Later models will incorporate an inertial particle separator for those operators who need flight…

ANSYS simulation

Aero Composites joined the ANSYS startup program to acquire advanced simulation capability of Aerodynamics and Composite Structures. Using Ansys Composite PrePost Aero Composites is capable of analyzing composite structures in fine detail, layer by layer. With this capability we can predict out of plane stresses that could cause failures before we even build the first prototype for testing. It also allows us to predict accurately the stiffness, deflection, weight, and…

Cresco Cowls Front View

Cresco Engine Cowls

Aero Composites completed its first two sets of certified Cresco Engine Cowls in 2018. These cowls are manufactured to a much higher standard than the original cowls using top grade high strength Carbon Fibers imported from Toho Tenax and a special Fire Resistant Epoxy Resin imported for us by Adhesive Technologies. The pictures show the first prototype cowl installed on a newly rebuilt Cresco 08600 of Aerospread.

We have moved!

Moving has been fairly smooth, but we are finally settled in to our new location, the large hangers at the end of Boyd Road on the Aeroclub side of the airport. The facilities feature a building with several offices as well as a medium sized hanger and a very large hanger for composites fabrication and prototyping. We now have the space to make things happen!

Aero Composites comes online

Aero Composites has recently made this website live, including making available Aero Composites’ Facebook profile, Google+ profile, and Twitter profile. Soon to come will be Aero Composites’ Linked In account as well as updates to the profiles. Having a presence on the internet is the first step towards achieving our goals to manufacture passenger aircraft. More information about Aero Composites will be posted in the near future such as our…
