Abstract : In 1958, Piper Aircraft's Vero Beach Development Center was assigned Project PA-29. The purpose of this project was to explore the possibility of building an airplane using materials and processes that might replace aluminum alloy. Almost from the start, the endeavor was principally in the field of fiberglas reinforced plastics, and emphasis was put on comparative cost.
