Carter CGT-150


The CGT-150 is Carter's jump takeoff transport with a 150‘ diameter rotor and wingspan. It is able to perform vertical takeoffs and zero roll landings with-out a runway. Unlike the CHT-150, it does not hover like a helicopter, but the associated weight savings gives it an increased payload of ~20,000 lbs. Like all CarterCopters, at high speeds, it will unload its rotor onto very efficient high-aspect ratio wings and (in the process) slow the rotor to minimize profile drag and maximize flight efficiency.

The aircraft is powered by two Pratt & Whitney F135 engines. It has an empty weight of around 140,000 lbs and a max gross weight of 330,000 lbs.
