North Coast Composites to Produce G250 Rudder

08 March 2011

North Coast Composites has been chosen by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to produce the G250 Rudder using the Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) process, in a contract valued at $6 million.

The G250 Rudder integrates lightning strike protection, net-moulded ribs, spars and rudder skins into a co-molded, single-piece structure. North Coast Composites say that this complex part is the first of its kind and could only be accomplished by utilizing specially designed RTM tooling and a streamlined, efficient manufacturing process.
