New A2 supersonic jet

5 times faster than the speed of sound


The team of British engineers in the project LAPCAT supported by the European Space Agency (European Space Agency), took on the development of cleaner and supersonic passenger aircraft, code-named A2, which can speed 5 times faster than the speed of sound.

The aircraft will perform flights between Europe and Australia in less than five hours, reported AFP. For example, the duration of the flight from Belgium to Australia will be 4 hours 40 minutes.

Length A2 future aircraft will be 143 meters and the capacity - up to 300 passengers. Maximum speed of liner 6400 kilometers per hour, which is five times faster than the speed of sound.

For comparison, the length of the popular passenger aircraft Boeing-737 total 36.5 meters and the length of the largest to date A380 aircraft - 73 meters that about half of future aircraft.

It should also be noted that the A2 will fly on liquid hydrogen, which is more environmentally safe compared to the currently used fuels. Without refueling supersonic airliner will be able to fly up to 20 thousand kilometers, its creators claim.

The cost of a ticket to such a supersonic aircraft will be about £ 3500 (or almost USD 7000).
