The Windecker Eagle I has the distinction of being the first all-composite aircraft to receive FAA certification. The Eagle was the product of several years of experimentation by Dr. Leo Windecker and Dr. Fairfax Windecker, working with Dow Chemical Company, to develop lightweight fiberlass reinforced plastic structures for aviation use. A flexible, non-woven glass fiber material called "Fibaloy" was the result and led to the Windecker X-7 prototype.

The world’s first all-composite airplane may fly again.

After 16 months and an undisclosed amount of money from a Chinese businessman, the Eagle has landed, preceded of course by a takeoff. The aircraft flew for the first time in 31 years on Dec. 6. The Windecker Eagle will be shipped to China as a demonstrator and returned to production in that country.

Rare composite airplane expected to fly with new engine.

Windecker Aircraft Inc. plans to invest $6 million and create 58 full-time jobs at its Mooresville facility on Knob Hill Road in Lakeside Business Park, local economic development officials announced Wednesday.
