In advanced composites autoclave processes are by far the most widely used and autoclave moulding is the process of choice for the aerospace industry. These processes use pre-impregnated uni-directional plies or woven cloths, which have been partially cured or beta-staged.
That isn't possible with autoclave curing,' he added. The other production revolution set to hit aerospace is additive manufacturing, but tempting though the thought of simply printing an aircraft might be, this isn't going to happen. Instead, Oldfield indicated, we can expect to see two types of additive process in aerospace.

Development of composites for aerospace use was both costly and potentially risky, therefore initial development was performed by military who had relatively large development budgets and are not so risk averse as the civil side. On the civil side, composite development was restricted to non-structural applications.
