Advanced composite rudders for DC aircraft: Design, manufacturing, and ground tests and ground testing of a graphite epoxy rudder for the DC commercial transport are discussed. The composite structure was fabricated using a unique processing method in which the thermal expansion characteristics of rubber tooling mandrels were used to.

Controversy Over the Use of Technologically Advanced Aircraft. The FAA has come under fire because of the influx of TAA and the FAA's lack of a modern flight training program.
