Carter Aviation Technologies
Monday, 11 January 2016
Carter Aviation Technologies, LLC (Carter) is pushing ahead with plans to begin production of CarterCopters at 7,000 lbs gross weight and less. Carter is continuing discussions regarding larger classes of aircraft with major aerospace companies, but still desires to get production started as soon as possible for smaller vehicles. “We have a great deal of interest getting a relationship started with a major aerospace company to produce large-scale CarterCopters, but we cannot ignore the demand at the lower end,” explained Jay Carter. “We get frequent inquiries regarding vehicles even as small as single-place so we are going to put some energy into developing business for a smaller set of vehicles, too.” Carter has expanded its fundamental business model to go beyond technology licenses and it now includes proposals for three separate joint ventures (JVs).
