HyperMach the British aircraft manufacturer is currently working on their new supersonic business jet. The 20 seat aircraft is said to be able to cruise at two times the speed of Concorde. A trip to Paris from New York will take under 2 hours. The aircraft is still very much in concept stage and is likely to be put into the production phrase after 2020. The aircraft is likely to cost $100 million USD and unlike the Concorde it will be able to travel over land at supersonic speed due to no sonic boom. The hull of the aircraft will consist of a magnetic spike on the nose that will use plasma waves to eliminate sonic noise when travelling at the speed of sound.
The Aerion Corporation is another hi-tech jet manufacturer that has developed an ultra tech new jet. The Aerion SBJ will be able to carry 12 passengers at Mach 1.5. The Aerion SBJ is slightly slower than the SonicStar but it will enter the market in 2015. Business and leisure travellers will be able to take advantage of supersonic air travel relatively soon. The company has taken several orders from clients placing a $250,000 deposit.
Once in service, these futuristic jets will be able for private jet charter to destinations around the World.
