    The versatile nature of composites attracted the designers to use these materials for several critical aircraft structural applications. As a result, a large number of materials (fibers and resins) are developed for use. Added to this, a large number of fabrication processes are also developed. To realise a cost effective civil aircraft13; structure, what material and process need to be used is not an easy matter to decide. An attempt is made in this paper to logically select the material and the corresponding fabrication process for various components of an aircraft for civil application.
