Performance Builds Passion

Your One Stop Shop For Your Composite Needs

Do you have a passion for building your own aircraft? Do you need materials to repair your cowling, wheel pants, or wingtips? Viper Aviation™ has that passion as well! We are proud and qualified to provide you with everything you need in the composite or adhesive arena to build and/or repair your aircraft. Our in-stock materials, cloths, and adhesives have all been vetted by our team of experts to ensure you get only the best materials to do the job right the first time; from our personally selected Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass, and Aramid cloths, to our Loctite adhesives, ZAP© Super Glues, to our Viper Aviation™ Super-Poxy™ epoxy system.

Cloth materials can be ordered by the foot for that custom repair - no need to buy more than required. Our ZAP© line of superglues are professional grade and used the world over by only the most discriminating home builders. Our Viper Aviation Super-Poxy is repackaged MGS© 335 resin with either slow or fast hardener. Why have we repackaged it? Because buying it a gallon at a time can be wasteful - if not expensive. We want your epoxy to be fresh and ready to take on the task you require.

Take a look at our store to find only the best products you will need to repair or construct your Experimental aircraft.
