I have 9 in carrier. It still handles worse than anything else in the game, but every little bit helps. The carrier just isn't built to fly around shooting. It is built to sit still during combat, moving only when it needs to relocate.

However, the value of the skill is not limited to turning speed. That skill also improves your total hull points. The carrier has base HP of 42000. But with 9 points in all three of the ship skills that apply to the carrier, it has just under 49,000 HP.
