It is an ultrafast aircraft that can radically change air traffic.
United Airlines has announced it will buy a 15-speed aircraft that can accelerate to 1,300 amps and reduce travel time from New York to London by 3.5 hours.
The airline also has the right to purchase another 35 Uverture aircraft that have not yet been built or certified from its future manufacturer Boom.
Promotional images of the Boom’s cabin, which can fly as fast as the Mach 1.7, show passengers sitting in the same gray and white seats on either side of the center aisle.
Each cushion appears to be made of light wood, with a wooden tray for work and an entertailovebylifent screen at the back of the front chair.
The Supersonic Concorde operated commercial flights from 1976 to October 2003, and Boom noted that the rediscovery of supersonic travel would be 75 percent more efficient than this aircraft.
“The deal to buy the world’s first‘ zero-carbon ’supersonic aircraft marks an important step towards creating a more comfortable world for our goal,” said Boom CEO Blake Scholl.
The planes, which will fly twice as fast as current passenger planes, will be launched in 2025, fly in 2026 and start carrying passengers in 2029.
The a-based Boom has raised $ 270 million since its inception in 2014 and now employs 150 people.
The value of the deal with United, the first with the commercial airline, has not been disclosed.
United Airlines said that “aircraft can connect more than 500 routes in almost half the time.”
The company added: “Among the many potential destinations for United are Newark in just three and a half hours to London, Newark to Frankfurt in four hours and San Francisco to Tokyo in just six hours. The overture is also on the bench. entertailovebylifent screens, ample personal space, and contactless technology. ”
The planes also use 100 percent stable fuel and are expected to be the first large commercial aircraft to run on carbon from day one.
“The first agreement to purchase high-speed aircraft from zero-grade carbon sound around the world is an important step in our mission to create a more comfortable world,” Mr. Sholl added.
But experts point out that such an aircraft would require several times more fuel per passenger than a conventional aircraft, and that stable aviation fuel is already rare.
“These would be an alternative to fossil jet fuel, and this fuel is very rare today – it’s also very expensive,” said Dan Rutherford, director of the International Clean Transport Aviation Program.
“It’s already a very small market, and I think it’s very nice to burn a lot of fuel with a plane that we know about.”
Boom said he would work with United to ensure that a stable aviation fuel supply for other aircraft is not adversely affected.
Experts say the companies also need to fix the cabin noise problems that came with the Concorde, as well as the sonic boom that occurred when the plane violated the sound speed.
