      On New Year's Eve , after more than 14 years of study, design work and competition, the U.S. federal government selected Boeing to build the prototype for the country's first supersonic transport (SST). Twenty-six airlines ordered of the transports.   The FAA's planned action is good news for Lockheed Martin, which earlier this year was awarded a $ million contract from NASA to design and build a modern supersonic commercial aircraft Author: Lou Whiteman, The Motley Fool.

        If things go as planned, the skies could see supersonic airplanes leaving U.S. airports within four years—pretty good considering that overland supersonic commercial routes have been banned in Author: Joe Pappalardo.   The return of Concorde supersonic flight has been brought a step closer with the announcement that 5 airlines have placed a total of 76 orders with U.S. firm Boom.

        Commercial aircraft like Boeing’s Model series and its Douglas competitor, the DC-8, ruled the air miles between major cities around the globe. However, the decade also became known for more than its share of aerospace failures, and among those failures lies the story of the American Supersonic Transport or SST.   In , the FAA ruled that under its authority from the Aircraft Noise Abatement Act, no civil aircraft could travel at speeds greater than Mach 1, the sound barrier, unless specially authorized by the FAA. This ban effectively limited the U.S. supersonic aviation industry by dramatically restricting its potential market size. With this FAA Author: Alan McQuinn.

On a team of scientists and designers from the U.S. and Australia tested their ultra-fast jet idea in the Australian desert, launching a rocket that was able to reach a speed of Mach That bumped it up from supersonic status (faster than the speed of sound) to “hypersonic” speed.

A spokesperson for the supersonic startup Boom Technology said they're designing aircraft that "can operate profitably while charging the same fares as today's business class" over oceanic routes. XB-1 is the demonstrator airplane for Overture and a critical step toward mainstream supersonic travel.

XB-1 will prove key technologies for safe, efficient supersonic travel. Overture is Boom’s Mach commercial airliner and will be the fastest airliner ever created and history’s most efficient supersonic jet. supersonic commercial aircraft.

Most of us have never flown Concorde — and we aren’t ever going to get a chance. The only supersonic commercial aircraft to ever go in service (besides its ill-fated Russian clone, the Tupolev ) was retired in And yet no other aircraft, save the Queen of the Skies — yes, the — is quite so admired by aviation enthusiasts.

That's about half as many as the. We had supersonic air travel, and then we didn’t, and the reasons are fairly banal. One factor was a high-profile crash that happened in France, in. Supersonic transport planes -- United States. See also what's at your library, or elsewhere.

These rocket engines have been tested in projects such as the U.S. Air Force (USAF) X and by NASA, which in October set the speed record for a manned, powered aircraft at Machor 7, km/h. Experimental projects. The main alternative to rockets are ramjets, and more specifically their supersonic combustion variant: the scramjet.

This brings us back to manufacturing giants Boeing and Airbus. Both want to maintain their dominance in commercial aircraft manufacturing.

The only surviving supersonic project is the decade-old Aerion business jet, designed to fly at supersonic speed over water and just-subsonic—a few knots faster than a Gulfstream.
