Composite materials combined with thermoset or thermoplastic resin with glass or carbon reinforcements are indispensable materials for structural parts used in the aerospace industry. Structural materials that have high strength/weight ratio together with low cost, and short processing time are preferred in aerospace. Considering these features, thermoplastic composite materials are excellent candidates for future aircraft materials due to their high strengths, design flexibility, and corrosion resistance. In this study, the advantages of composite materials in the aerospace industry are discussed and the manufacturing processes of thermoplastic composite materials are reviewed.
