Carbon nanotubes produced by Unidym, a subsidiary of Arrowhead Research, have been used in the engine cowling of Avalon Aviation's Giles G-200, a single-engine aerobatic carbon composite airplane. According to Unidym, such aircraft are often used to test the effects of aerodynamic stress and engine vibration on materials added to the airframe to increase strength and flexibility.
