EAAviator / EAA Chapter 7 -- September 2013
Chapter 7 member George McDaniel has been instrumental in working with Terry Price at Cerritos College Composite Training Center. A group of us from Chapter 7 attended the first composite class on Saturday, August 10, 2013. This was the first of many such classes to be offered at Cerritos College.
It was an interesting morning as Terry gave us an introduction and overview of composites. He posed the question, 'why composites?' Among the answers; composites are lighter weight but stronger with fewer parts, and composites lower both the costs and build time. Also, corrosion and fatigue problems are eliminated. Composite technology has come a long way and has numerous applications in our world today. We all left with a better understanding of composites
