Sci-Tech: Spike Aerospace developing supersonic biz jet

I’ve come across over the years a handful of ventures (e.g. Aerion® Corp.  and HyperMach) seeking to develop a commercial supersonic business jet. Here is a new one: Spike Aerospace

Spike Aerospace was founded by a small group of passionate engineers interested in international travel, and opportunities to make that faster and more efficient. They have spent the last 2 years designing a supersonic personal jet — the Spike S-512. This amazing team, with years of experience at Gulfstream, Eclipse and Airbus have designed a 12-18 passenger jet that flies at Mach 1.6 (1100 mph) — reducing flight time by 50%.

Fly Supersonic, Do More means being able to reach destinations around the world is less than half the time it currently takes. Imagine the impact on personal travel, business, investments and global opportunities if you could fly from NYC to London in just 3 hours, LA to Toyko just 5 hours or soon, London to Mumbai in just 4 hours.

Here’s an article about the project: Spike S-512 could be the world’s first supersonic business jet –
