This latest aircraft of the future. A2.
Supersonic speed is no longer like the Concord, but it’s been hyper-sonic. Concord flew at Mach 2 (twice the speed of sound). A2, flying at five times the speed of sound (Mach 5). The aircraft is even faster than the most advanced fighter aircraft today, such as the F-16 and F-22! (the speed is Mach 2).
With aircraft, from Europe to Australia reached within 22 hours. With this plane only took 4.5 hours! The aircraft is also very eco-friendly because it uses Liquid Hydrogen fuel. Its basic ingredients and the output is basically, Air. Truly futuristic!
Estimates when ready for operation? 20-25 years, 2030. This aircraft can carry 300 people, and the cost was equivalent to the targeted business-class tickets standards, about 4,700 euros or 6900 dollars.
A2 does not have a window. Beyond the spectacular scenery can be seen from the flat screen television.
Mach 1 = 1 times the speed of sound.
Mach 5 = 5 times the speed of sound.
Supersonic = Mach> 1.0
Hypersonic = Mach> 5.0
