Active vibration control is presented as an effective technique used for vibration suppression and for attenuating bad effects of disturbances on structure. In this work Proportional-Integral-Derivative control were employed to study suppression of active vibration wing affected by wind airflow. Two different composite wings with different manufacturing materials had been made with specific size to be suitable for using in wind tunnel. Piezoelectric (PZT (transducers are used as sensors and actuators in vibration control systems. The velocity was 25 m/s and three different attack angles (0, 10, 20 degrees) had been taken to show their effect on the wings vibrations suppression. The results shows that the suppression of the wing amplitude is reduced when the attack angle increases for both woven and random composite wing matt and this happened due to the vortex which became more violent at the increase of attack angle and also due to the area that face the wind which will increase when the attack angle increase and this will reduces the suppression. The maximum control amplitude of woven Glass-fiber matt was 1.75cm and the damping was about 38 % at zero attack angle while it was 2cm and the damping was about 26 % at 20 degree attack angle for random Glass-fiber composite matt
