Hybrid polymer composites are the materials made by combining two or more different type of fibers in a matrix. Hybrid polymer composite material offers the designer to obtain the required properties in a controlled considerable extent by the choice of fibers and matrix. The properties are tailored in the material by selecting different kinds of fiber incorporated in the same resin matrix. They offer wide range of properties that cannot be obtained with a single type of reinforcement. Due to its high specific strengths, high specific modulus, low densities, light weight etc. based on its applications. Presently they are playing a vital role in aerospace, defence, transport, sport applications. Worldwide researches are keenly interested in finding out their behavior in real life exposed to various environmental conditions, variety of loads etc. In this paper, We fabricated carbon, e-glass and hybrid composites by using hand layup technique in uni-directional orientation with epoxy as a matrix material and conducted various tests such as tensile, compression on Universal Testing Machine (UTM) and hardness. The results are validated with FEA and observed that Al-6061- T6 which is used in manufacturing of military aircraft landing mats, truck bodies and frames etc. has a tensile strength of about 310.25Mpa.The tensile strength of hybrid fiber is 341Mpa which is higher than Al 6061-T6. We have compared the experimental results with ansys results and found that the experimental values are very close to the ansys results. But when compared within the fibers carbon fiber exhibited more strength when compared to other fibers
