Regresso das viagens aéreas super rápidas
February 8, 2019 -- A Boeing associou-se à startup Aerion Corporation do Nevada para
desenvolver um avião que promete trazer de volta o luxo das viagens
supersónicas pela primeira vez desde a retirada do Concorde em 2003.
Boeing said it will provide engineering, manufacturing and flight-test resources for Aerion’s AS2 jet, which is due to make its first flight in 2023.
The 12-seater plane is able to fly at speeds of up to Mach 1.4, or about 1,000 miles per hour – some 70 percent faster than today’s quickest business jets, according to Bloomberg News.
