Carter Aviation Technologies will be headed to Oshkosh, WI this year to participate in the EAA Airventure Flight Show.

After breaking five aviation records in four days back in January (read more here), receiving the American Helicopter Society (AHS) award (read more here), and after a successful flight demonstration at MacDill AFB for CENTCOM/SOCOM in April of this year, CarterCopters is continuing its nation-wide demonstration tour making more waves in the aviation world.

CarterCopters was the first to achieve Mu1 (Mu is the ratio of aircraft speed divided by the rotor tip speed, and Mu 1 is when both are equal) back in 2005, and have accomplished the feat again numerous times with the latest aircraft. To put this into perspective, from the Wright brothers’ first flight in 1903, it took 44 years to break the speed of sound, 66 years to put a man on the moon, and 102 years to achieve Mu 1. The significance of Mu1+ is a rotorcraft with the speed and efficiency of fixed wing aircraft.
