Welcome to canardcomposites.com!

    In aeronautics, canard, French for duck, is an airframe configuration of fixed-wing aircraft in which the tailplane is ahead of the main lifting surfaces, rather than behind them as in conventional aircraft, or when there is an additional small set of wings in front of the main lifting surface. The earliest models, such as the Wright Flyer, the world's first airplane, were seen by observers to resemble a flying duck, hence the name.

    Composite materials or composites for short are engineered materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties and which remain separate and distinct on a macroscopic level within the finished structure. Cloth of woven glass or carbon fiber filaments are a common element in composite materials.
