There is a new small supersonic jet under construction wich is planned to take of already next year. Its purpose is to show that the companies technology is capable of makeing supersonic commercial flights profitable. I cant wait for it.
Their main project is going to be buld a couple years later after testing the small one. Its planned to have about 40-50 seats, be able to travel 9000nm with Mach 2.2.
Heard about this, its a test of many of the concepts being used in the full-size plane. Quite a make-or-break plane, if it goes wrong investors will lose there nerve (and we all know uncertainty is bad), potentially bankrupting boom
I know the commercial one is mentioned but this is not the one i was focusing on. The one i did open a thread about is the experimental XB-1 wich is hopefully going to get its maiden flight early next year or so.
