Hawai’i’s Shared Futures By Vision Foresight Strategy

Supersonic Travel

Scan: a company called Reaction Engines Limited is working on what experts claim is a theoretically sound model of a supersonic 300 person passenger jet. The jet, known as the A2, uses two kinds of engines to create efficient thrust at sub- and supersonic speeds (up to Mach 5). The A5 is expected to be able to run from Brussels to Sydney in under 4 hours. More spectacularly, the design of the jet calls for hydrogen as the fuel, producing a zero-carbon emissions footprint from in-flight operations.
