About two decades ago, the French high-speed plane “Concorde” was retired, and since then interest in producing alternative supersonic aircraft has increased, and it seems that it is about to become a reality.
And the American network, CNN, said that there are many high-speed planes under development, amid airlines’ interest in providing hypersonic planes, to shorten travel time, as in the case of United Airlines, which pledged to provide such planes by the year 2029, according to “Sky News”.
The network said that there are those who develop a plane that exceeds the speed of sound much, almost five times, which makes the flight time between London and New York about only 90 minutes, while conventional commercial aircraft take about 7 hours.
The “Concorde” plane, which was exceeding high speed at the time, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, which separates the two cities, in about 3 hours.
And the production of the high-speed plane is being carried out by the emerging company “Hermes”, headquartered in the US city of Atlanta.
And company officials say that it has begun testing a new type of engine, which is believed to increase the speed of the aircraft to Mach 5 (more than 4,828 kilometers per hour).
The engine was designed for a small, unmanned aircraft, and this aircraft is currently being built for the US Air Force, but as its size increases, it will be able to be a commercial passenger plane. The American company hopes that the upcoming plane will see the light of day within a decade.
