Abstract: Currently, one of the research programs at CSIR is focused on developing composites from natural fibre and phenolic matrices to be used as side panels in aircraft structures. Efforts are underway to solve the issues related to strength, adhesion between fibre and matrix, moisture and thermal durability besides compliance to meet with airworthiness standards. The latter part of the program will deal with biopolymer matrices which would lead to development of green composites for aerospace applications. The present paper will discuss approaches and methodology used and some preliminary results highlighting the challenges involved
