    The Miles M was a turbojet-powered supersonic research aircraft project designed in the United Kingdom in the mids. In October , Miles Aircraft was issued with a contract to produce the aircraft in accordance with Air Ministry Specification E/The programme was highly ambitious for its time, aiming to produce an aircraft and engine capable of unheard-of speeds of at least Manufacturer: Miles Aircraft.   In this Biz Jet TV episode, fab Poli talks to us about the Aerion AS2 supersonic jet and the challenge ahead You can contact Fab Poli on: [email protected] Linkedin: in.

    A supersonic transport (SST) is a civilian supersonic aircraft designed to transport passengers at speeds greater than the speed of date, the only SSTs to see regular service have been Concorde and the Tupolev TuThe last passenger flight of the Tu was in June and it was last flown in by de's last commercial flight was in October , with a November Missing: book. A supersonic aircraft is an aircraft able to fly faster than the speed of sound (Mach number 1). Supersonic aircraft were developed in the second half of the twentieth century and have been used almost entirely for research and military purposes. Only two, Tupolev Tu (first flight - Decem ) and the Concorde (first flight - March 2, ), ever entered service for civil use as Missing: book.

    NASA 73 investigated six potential propulsion systems for use on supersonic civil aircraft: turbojet, turbine bypass, mixed flow turbofan, variable cycle, Flade (Fan-on-blade is a modified turbofan engine that introduces an additional airstream up front in the engine fan) and the inverting flow valve engine. These were evaluated for performance, weight and size. The first aircraft to fly at supersonic speeds was a Bell X-1 rocket-powered research plane piloted by Major Charles E. Yeager of the U.S. Air Force on Octo After being dropped from the belly of a Boeing B mother ship, the XS-1 broke the (local) sound barrier at 1, km ( miles) per hour and attained a top speed of 1, km ( miles) per hour, or Mach Missing: book.
