In this study, flutter characteristics of a composite wing have been studied for the variation of laminate angles in the subsonic, transonic and supersonic flow regime. The laminate angles are selected by the aspect of engineering practice such as 0, $\pm$45 and 90 degrees. To calculate the unsteady aerodynamics for flutter analysis, the Doublet Lattice Method(DLM) in subsonic flow and the Doublet Point Method(DPM) in supersonic flow are applied in the frequency domain. In transonic flow, transonic small disturbance(TSD) code is used to calculate the nonlinear unsteady aerodynamics in the time domain. Aeroelastic governing equation has been solved by v-g method in the frequency domain and also by Coupled Time-Integration Method(CTIM) in the time domain. from the results of present study, characteristics of free vibration responses and aeroelastic instabilities of a composite wing are presented for the set of various lamination angles in the all flow range.
