Back in the day, aircraft were constructed using wood and fabrics, which didn’t work well at all. The aircraft were often subjected to rapid deterioration and required a lot of maintenance. For this reason, over the years, the world of aircraft manufacturing has changed drastically. The main objective of an aircraft is to fly using support from the air, while also resisting gravitational forces; therefore, the requirements for materials used are rather specific. The materials used must be lightweight and incredibly strong, while also being heat, crack and corrosion resistant! So what materials fit all of these specifications? In this blog, we take a look at what is used nowadays to ensure that aircraft work to the best of their abilities.
