Boeing Sonic Cruiser
Boeing Sonic Cruiser is a new aircraft that is being
built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Boeing is aiming to develop a design that
will allow commercial passenger and cargo aircraft to fly faster, higher and
farther travel. The airplane will travel at Mach 0.95 or faster. It is estimated
that it will save about one hour for every 3,000 miles flown. The only
commercial aircraft to travel faster is the Concorde.
altitude will be in the mid-40,000 foot (above 13,000 meters) level and the
range will be about 9,000 nautical miles (16,668 km). The new jet is still in
the early phases of development and may change as Boeing works with its
customers to understand their requirements.
