Workshop: New findings in the field of material, technology, composite testing and application in the Czech aviation industry

On March 22, 2011, VZLU arranged seventh workshop on the topic “New findings in the field of material, technology, composite testing and application in the aviation industry of the Czech Republic”.

Composites and the aviation industry have always been and will be connected with a dynamic growth in all research, development and industrial sectors. Composites have made a big step forward in aeronautics in all aircraft categories recently, which is true of the Czech Republic too.

Composite structures dominate both the area of small aircraft and civilian aircraft of the highest category and also the whole area of combat aircraft including helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.

In recent years, the CR has implemented major production programs of foreign companies in the field of composite structures and has dealt with R & D projects within the EU FP. Even this new situation is taken into account in topics of the seminar.

One day meeting at VZLU makes an important contact place bringing together experts from the Czech aeronautical industry, academics, national offices, CR army and Light Aircraft Association CR.
