The United States will resume the creation of a supersonic aircraft

53
The Presidential Administration approved funding for the development of a supersonic aircraft and approved the launch of QueSST X-Plane. The aircraft is being developed by NASA engineers in conjunction with Lockheed Martin.


The United States will resume the creation of a supersonic aircraft


In total, NASA will receive 2019 billion dollars in 19,9, but it is not known how much of this amount will be allocated to the creation of the aircraft. Development is fully funded from the budget. The first flight of QueSST is scheduled for 2021 year. The aircraft will become a platform for testing new technologies.

X-Plane will open up new opportunities for American companies, which will allow to create faster commercial liners, new jobs, and also reduce the flight time by half. Hypersonic studies are also crucial to national defense.
- the document says.

The new aircraft must meet the requirements of environmental safety, move with the highest possible speed and be more quiet compared to similar aircraft. X-Plane will be equipped with narrow and long wings, electric engines built into the fuselage, and biofuels are supposed to be used as flight energy. Its development began in March 2016.

        Did someone understand something? What does “creating a supersonic airplane” mean? Supersonic planes were created 60 years ago, sort of?

      Probably not. Apparently our intelligence worked, and the GDP blurted out about the civilian version of the TU-160. But as I said earlier, I repeat, supersonic large airliners will not appear soon. All of this civilian supersonic aviation can still find application in the form of jets for 20-30 people, who can afford it. For the "mortals" it is still a fairy tale.

We play some games with the EU, we make excuses for Minsk, we tolerate everything that is happening in Ukraine ... the politics of the CIS, that is, in the territories of our strategic interests, is sluggish, like an impotent’s device, and they made a circus from Sobchak from the elections and Berkova ... at the same time, there are more and more corrupt officials, and the defense budget is less ... well, why rejoice?

                      I can congratulate you myself ... they are already putting new glazing on the MIG-31 BM ... and have already dispersed it to 3400 km / h. Apparently, all 31s will be upgraded to the MIG-31 BM variant. So to say, they thought "thrush".

    . X-Plane will be equipped with narrow and long wings, electric motors built into the fuselage, and biofuels are supposed to be used as energy for flights. Its development began in March 2016.
    Star Wars is resting. There were so many projects - good and different. Although some useful developments will be made. But
    QueSST's first flight is scheduled for 2021.

    And every American prezik is trying to realize another whim! If they seriously wanted to create such an aircraft, they would have invested heavily in research for a long time and now would have had at least a prototype, or even a couple of production models! They need new technologies and technical solutions. They will gather specialists from all over the world, suck out their ideas, and close the project for the hundredth time! So, this is just a PR campaign, to get new ideas and technical solutions for future aviation for free.

    As soon as I read to electric motors and biofuels, I realized - I drank.

          You are only partially right, they draw something on paper, but embody ... in metal!

    Passengers producing biofuels in flight will receive a discount of two cents per kilogram. The use of laxatives is supposed to be regarded as doping, and will be punished by expulsion overboard. A space for a WADA officer with three tons of equipment is provided on board.

    the very idea of ​​supersonic transport in the lower atmosphere is dead end.
    This is confirmed by time - over the past 30 years, how much
    there were announcements that someone was about to create a supersonic airliner ...
    ... and everything was quietly blown away.
    Even such a radical idea as the transportation of passengers using a ballistic missile with a vertical launch and landing
    has more right to life - and speed is more and problems are less.
    Let Americans frolic in this dead direction.
    One thing scares me - as it were, reliably and comfortably settled, the budget cutters of the Russian Federation did not decide, pointing out these works of the Americans, to create another black financial hole, venturing a "response to the adversary" according to the reliable and time-tested scheme "Hodge Ishak Emir"

    maybe a breakthrough has been outlined?

    Judging by many comments, it seems yes, the number of dura.kov is becoming more ... People began to be fooled by "smart slogans" again and absolutely do not want to think on their own

    Eh, and who will explain what kind of beast "with electric motors built into the fuselage"?
    How will they give him cravings for supersonic?

    What do you call delirium? Information where do the children of our "democrats" study and live? The Leader indicates the way for us, the party (United Russia) illuminates it so that they do not go astray. We are going the right way, comrades !!!

    The fact that you reprinted is nonsense. Let’s mention the daughter of I.V. Stalin, Svetlana ... And your list is at least 50% FALSE and this is at least all this was known back in 2014 and why you pulled it out of naphthalene again is known only to you ...
