In the very near future, air travel will be faster and without fear of polluting the environment. That seems to be the goal of a supersonic passenger plane that could cross oceans in less than four hours.

But it is not the first supersonic aircraft project. This is a multi-decade challenge. And it is the company Boom Supersonic that has taken a more specific position with its project that would be making its first flight in 2026.

The plane could reach a speed of 2.83 km/h to cover the oceans in less than four hours, with a capacity to accommodate 65 to 80 passengers. According to data from the same company, it reaches a height of 60,000 feet and has a range of 7,867 kilometers.

But the main detail of this plane is that it promises not to emit a single polluting gas into the atmosphere such as CO2. And this is because the aircraft would work with 100% synthetic emission-free fuel. A type of fuel that has become the option to Diesel and conventional oil.

The page reported that the ship has already passed ground tests using simulators and some airlines such as United Airlines have requested 15 units. But production will only start in 2024 and commercial flights would start in 2029, but it is estimated that they would have a differentiated cost.
