Boeing has dreams that resemble concepts straight out of science fiction. The first hypersonic, passenger aircraft is expected to be airborne and operational in the next 20 to 30 years.
Hypersonic aircraft air capable of traveling at speeds of Mach 5 and up. That is about five times the speed of sound, which is 3,806 mph. To put that into perspective, the NASA space shuttles travel at Mach 25 when reentering the Earth’s atmosphere.
Boeing’s Hypersonic Technology
This aircraft is expected to be able to make the flight from London to New York in two hours. This kind of power is already being developed for military purposes. However, Boeing is hoping to have this aircraft operational in the military for ISR in 10 years.
According to Boeing, this aircraft is not the only hypersonic technology that is being developed. This aircraft is being developed upon a foundation of six decades of experiments and work across the company as a whole.
Private Air Travel is the Way of the Future
While hypersonic air travel is in the works, private air travel remains as the way to travel comfortably. Rather than spending 18 hours stuffed between baggage and inconsiderate passengers, consider sitting back and relaxing with plenty of space to comfortably rest or work.
