When it comes to the production of today’s business jets, Cessna has no global rival. So when Cessna asked Fiber Dynamics, Inc. to construct a step assembly for its universally acclaimed Citation CJ4 business jet, we knew we were the right ones for the job.

By process of CNC ply cutting into carbon fiber, we rapidly assembled the basics of a complex, multi-part, integrated structure with a step length of 38” and a step width of 18”. Next, we added internally captured machined metal complex-hollow-cavity components and foam plus an external rate controller allowing for steps to deploy evenly. This was accomplished using “one-shot” conventional match die resin transfer molding (RTM) and cost-saving out-of-autoclave process.

By applying a finishing touch of prime and top-coating with multiple paint variants, we soon had ourselves a product worthy of Cessna’s matchless reputation and of our own avionics ability.
