Carter Jump Takeoff Designs

Carter has developed its Slowed Rotor/Compound (SR/C™) technology as an alternative to conventional vertical lift. While the acoustic and drag benefits of slowing a rotor in cruise flight are well understood, Carter had to solve 10 challenges to make SR/C™ aircraft a reality (more info). Runway independent aircraft that possess efficiencies more akin to fixed-wing aircraft promise to deliver a cleaner, greener, and safer VTOL capability with a fraction of helicopter complexity. CarterCopters with jump takeoff capability deliver 3 times the cruise efficiency of helicopters at a fraction of the acquisition and operating costs.
