Clean-burning engines reduce emissions during high-altitude cruises
The QSST will be capable of up to Mach 1.8 and can fly for over 4000 nautical miles
State-of-the-art engine design make for quiet take off and landing
Up to 12 people can travel in executive-level comfort
Is the QSST the future of supersonic transport?
The dimensions of the QSST compare favourably to existing designs
Supersonic business jets have traditionally got a bad rap when it comes to practicality and the environment, with high costs, loud noises and short range far outweighing the benefits of speed. The future of air travel will therefore be subject to stringent criteria to ensure that economy and eco-credentials, particularly noise pollution, don’t take a back seat to comfort and performance, and with this in mind Supersonic Aerospace International seem to have hit a luxury-class balance between the two.
