Production & Manufacturing

Offering full Turn-Key Assemblies and beyond; Our Bend, Oregon facility has the ability to manufacture your next Advanced Composite project.

Product Research & Development

Partnering in design and innovation, we help push the envelope in a variety of industries. Check out our latest!

Established in Central Oregon over 17 years ago, Composite Approach specializes in composite related projects. While the majority of our experience lies in the high performance aircraft industry, we are dedicated to the conception, development, fabrication and production of all types of performance composite products. Our custom aircraft builder assistance center specializes in Lancair Aircraft kits; however if the composite aircraft you need assistance with doesn’t carry the Lancair brand, we’d be more than happy to help you out. We offer complete step-by-step assistance with the aircraft building process, along with modification and repair services. Building your own airplane should be more then a means to an end. It should be an enjoyable, educational, and fulfilling experience.

We offer a wide range of other services including design consultation, project research and development, manufacturing integration and contract production. Our tested and proven team members bring a wide range of experience and in-depth knowledge to the table. At Composite Approach, we strive to provide excellent, quality work with integrity and confidence in the final product. Spanning all aspects of the composite industry, we are capable and inspired to take on any project big or small. Our goal at Composite Approach is to build long-term relationships with our customers and we are dedicated to your success.
