Project Info:

“COGEA” (Composite Certification in General Aviation) is a Project sponsored by Apulia Region. It aims to develop innovative design solutions for composite components of VLA (Very Light Aeroplanes) primary structures, using advanced CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) materials. NOVOTECH is currently involved to perform the preliminary design and manufacturing of wing’s sub-components for an Italian ultra-light aircraft. The analysis have been performed on ribs and the aileron, in order to minimize material and manufacturing costs, as well as maximizing performance in terms of weight reduction. The sub-components manufacturing will be performed through AFP (Automated Fiber Placement) and LRI (Liquid Resin Infusion) technologies.
