9-hour journey will be reduced to 3.5 hours. A new step has been taken for the supersonic jet called “Boom”, also known as Concorde’s heir. It was announced that the British Rolls-Royce will also be involved in the production of the model. The two companies announced to the public that they would work together on the project.
The speed of the “Boom” supersonic jet will reach 2,300 kilometers per hour. This number means a speed higher than twice the speed of sound.
In this way, the aircraft aims to shorten travel times. The aircraft, which will reach the speed of Mach 2.2, will fly from New York to London in 3.5 hours (today this flight takes 9 hours) and from Tokyo to San Francisco in 5.5 hours.
It was announced that England-based Rolls-Royce will also be involved in the production of the model, which is in the R&D stage.
However, there is no official explanation for when the supersonic model will be ready for use yet.
