Now you may have to come up with something for the wings..........
If you're wanting to actually triple the formers/spars, the quickest way is to do a rough cut of the part, then glue the extra layers to the backside, allowing you to cut the part using the printed graphics on the top piece. Only need to cut one part this way. You will need to verify the knife is 90 deg for straight edges, unless you want the edge tapered.

I might have read your post wrong, thinking you are cutting three pieces out and then gluing them together.
