Are Supersonic Business Aircraft on the Horizon?

Aug. 26, 2019

NASA is working on technology to break the sound barrier in business aircraft and other applications to allow for commercial supersonic travel over populated areas without creating major disruptions. “We believe the technology is available for commercial supersonic travel. The market will be larger when we will be able to fly supersonic over land.” said Clayton Meyers, NASA, deputy project manager, commercial supersonic technology. “Technology improvements, including efficiency considerations, will make this happen. Lowering the sonic boom is the first step in enabling a new market of supersonic commercial aircraft over land.”
