The weight reduction and improved mechanical property are one of the prime factors to develop new materials for the aerospace industry. Composite materials have thus become the most attractive candidate for aircraft and other means of transportations due to their excellent property and light weight. In particular, fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials have been used as an alternative to metals in the aircraft. The composite materials have shown improved properties compared to those of metal and polymeric materials, which made the composites being used as the skin structure of the airplane. This review introduces different types of materials which have been developed from the FRP composite material and also one of the most advantageous ways to employ the composites in aircraft.
