What is Fold-a-Plane (FAP)?
Steve Rahm, the designer of the Personal Cruiser developed a method to use flat panels of composite material, fiberglass and polyurethane foam, that could be assembled to form solid structural parts. The exterior finish of a FAP part is on par with that of completely molded parts and without the labor intensive use of large forms typical in used the mold-less composite methods. The main advantages of FAP are reduced manufacturing cost, superior outer finish and strength of the parts, and flat panels that can be shipped in smaller light weight containers to further reduce expenses.
