The Boeing company introduced the concept of a hypersonic passenger aircraft

Despite the fact that planes are one of the fastest modes of transport, some flights still last prohibitively long. Therefore, the invention of more high-speed passenger plane – it is only a matter of time. Attempts to become a pioneer in this field is taking a world-renowned Boeing company, which introduced its first very intriguing concept for a hypersonic passenger aircraft.

The presentation took place in the framework of the conference of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics), which runs from 25 to 29 June in Atlanta. According to representatives of the company’s future civil aircraft capable of flying at speeds of up to 5 times the speed of sound. In addition, it became known that, most likely, the aircraft can carry up to 32 passengers and crew members. The streamlined shape of the fuselage of the aircraft to minimize sonic boom when breaking the sound barrier. Moreover (but this is just a guess based on the shape of the aft), the aircraft will run on cryogenic hydrogen fuel.

Believe themselves the representatives of the Boeing company, at the current pace of technology development around this should be the air in the next 30 years. However, Boeing does not exclude the fact that the technology used can be applied not only in civil aviation but also in the design of military aircraft and even with the creation of spacecraft. While at the conference Boeing confirmed that it is not the only concept of a hypersonic aircraft, which is created by their engineers.
