The high pressure and performance standards placed upon materials in the aerospace industry can often be far greater than that in other industries. The ever-growing confidence in fibre reinforced plastics within the aerospace industry has led to more sophisticated applications on aircrafts. Initial tests carried out by the military applying composite materials to radomes (the outside shell which protects the antenna) and soon spread to secondary structures and internal components.

The development and increased confidence placed in fibre reinforced plastics has now seen wider applications across the whole aerospace sector, notably in the fuselage of major passenger aircraft.

As well as commercial aircraft, there has been an increased application of composite materials in the production of helicopters. Rotor blades especially have seen a change in production from lightweight metals to composite materials; due to the lightweight and corrosion-resistant properties which they have.
