Applied Composites

Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and Aviation Electrification are considered the 3rd revolution in aerospace. Our constant drive to deliver cutting-edge manufacturing processes positions us perfectly to serve this rapidly growing market.

Quickstep has been in the composites manufacturing business for over 20 years and is trusted by the world’s most trusted aerospace OEMs. Our Applied Composites line of business is focused on taking your AAM solution from Prototype to Production with in-house specialist Design for Manufacture capabilities at your service.

AAM Manufacturing

Our primary AAM manufacturing capability is located within the grounds of Deakin University in Geelong, Australia’s leading Carbon Fiber and Composite Research facility. Our Engineers bring a unique balance of Aerospace and Automotive industry experience, developing manufacturing processes able to build Drone aerostructures to Aerospace Standards at Automotive Prices and Rates.

Quickstep Applied Composites provides AAM manufacturers with a partnership approach to production. We understand the economics of the AAM sector whether that be a service delivery price target or product price point and we’re focused on getting you where you need to be in that equation.


We also know the start-up environment and that making the jump from prototype to higher rate manufacture consumes considerable resources, time, and money. Partnering with us allows you to focus on other high-value aspects of your AAM solution while we take care of your aerostructure needs.

And we won’t only provide you with a manufacturing solution for today’s needs. We are constantly investing in the development of future AAM technologies, such as integrated Hydrogen Fuel Cell power systems. As you scale up or develop your next generation of AAM platform, we’ll be right there with you.

Whether we’re solving your production challenges through the use of our proprietary out of autoclave CFRP curing system AeroQureTM , or by applying over 20 years’ worth of global aerospace design and manufacturing know-how, our dedicated team are ‘all in’ with making sure you get to where you want to be with your AAM aerostructure.
