The Coming Back Of Supersonic Passenger Jets
It is well known that air transport is one of the most expensive means of transport compared to the other means. However, in the past there used to be the Concorde which was the only means one could cross over the Atlantic Ocean at the highest speed. This kind of a supersonic airliner was actually a venture between the French and the British governments to particularly provide an international travel which could be faster.
In as much as the traveling was at a supersonic speed, the service was terminated despite the fact the number of the passengers were increasing each day. The termination of the travelling services were then terminated following the accident of the jet that actually killed many passengers who were on board. The termination of the supersonic jets made the public to believe that the jets were the things of the past but actually the industry has continued to pursue the introduction of the new supersonic jets again.
It has emerged that there are some companies which want to begin the supersonic aircraft passenger and this is quite evident since there is a company that has made orders for the supersonic aircraft recently. The supersonic aircraft is design to carry a maximum of 12 passengers and most likely those who would only afford their fast flight services. With the normal aircraft, flights would take longer time but with the introduction of the supersonic jets the time would be reduced up to a half the time used earlier and it would only accommodate for those who are capable of paying for the services as this company shows.
While these companies are really trying harder to ensure that they relaunch the supersonic jets in the world stage, they are still undermined by some problems which should be first settled for the relaunch to be successful. One of the major problem related to this relaunching is finding the production of the jet engine that is capable of sustaining supersonic flight. Another problem for the relaunch also is the market for such flights. It could be difficult to determine whether there would be enough people to pay for the supersonic flights.
Despite all these challenges, the companies are still trying to fight more and are determined to try and make it happen. At the same time, if you prefer normal aircraft when the supersonic jets have been relaunched then you should never get worried since in either way the technology will still catch up with you. One of the most important safety tips while on a flight is ensuring that your mobile phone is off or at airplane mode to avoid losing data while travelling.
