This new supersonic flights are 2.6x faster than any other airliner
The XB-1 Supersonic Demonstartor is our first step toward routine supersonic flight. (BABY BOOM) as she is likely called, is the world’s first independently developed supersonic jet and the fastest civil aircraft ever made. XB-1 will flight prove the key technologies for practical supersonic flight.
We will unveil the XB-1 design on November 15.
Supersonic flight has existed for over 50 years but hasn’t been efficient enough for routine travel. Until now.
A breakthrough aerodynamic design, state of the art engine technology, and advanced composite materials enable an ultra- fast airliner as efficient and affordable as business class in today subsonic wide body airliners.
Flying the supersonic aircrafts from New York city to London only takes 4hours, and this goes for the same price as flying the regular boeing business class tickets which arrives from same destination point to arrival city in 7hours. Boom does it in 4hours.
talk about time gained!
However, first supersonic passenger flight is planned for late 2017. Subsonic fights tests will be conducted east of the Denver metro area, with supersonic flight proven near Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California.
