An airplane fairing is any structure on an aircraft with the primary purpose of producing a smooth exterior and reducing drag. These structures serve as covers for gaps and spaces between parts of an aircraft, helping to reduce form drag, interference drag, and improve the aircraft cosmetically. Fairings are found on the fuselage, cockpit, elevator, stabilizers, cowlings, rudder, landing gear, wings, and more. As they perform an important function on so many parts of an aircraft, it’s no surprise that fairings are in high demand. This blog will analyze how the fairings market performed in 2019 and provide some insight into what the next five years might hold.
