Wild Card's description 
Primarily new composite materials are used in aeronautics. These are fully resistent against atmospheric hazards such as hail, hurricanes and thunderstorms and on the other hand are extremely aerodynamically efficient. In conjunction with highly integrated laser and optics technologies offering increased robustness of Air Data System in extreme flying conditions, flights can now be conducted in extreme weather conditions. These appear more often as result of the climate change.
