NASA low-decibel supersonic passenger jet concept | NASA NASA’s supersonic passenger jet project now has an approved design and a demo version in the making, with a finished aircraft to fly by the early 2020s.
14 years after the Concorde was retired, supersonic passenger air travel seems to be making a big comeback. In fact, many companies have plans for supersonic passenger aircraft–all at varying stages of development.
NASA, more commonly associated with space exploration, is dedicating some of its resources and know-how to make passenger supersonic travel a “viable” reality.
NASA’s Low Boom Flight Demonstrator
Last year, NASA unveiled its plans to develop the quieter version of a supersonic passenger jet that’s fast, safe, and surprisingly eco-friendly. This Quiet Supersonic Transport, or QueSST aircraft design, is just the first stage towards a goal of efficient supersonic transport.
Commonly referred to as the X-plane, and dubbed the Low Boom Flight
