The SonicStar supersonic plane, designed by HyperMach, could reach New York form London in two hours! SonicStar meets the requirements of speed and low overland noise, effectively ushering in a new dawn in aviation history. But, what matters us is the fact that it has reduced emmission rates!
The 20-seat plane is expected to be capable of greater speeds using its S-MAGJET hybrid gas turbine engine technology. With its low fuel consumption, the Sonic Star overcomes the economic and environmental challenges of supersonic flight. Let’s see how.
By generating massive amounts of electrical power, the SonicStar uses proprietary integrated turbine electromagnetic generation technology to segment each engine rotating component stage electrically. This segmentation will enable the engine to change the operating speeds of its rotating components continually throughout the flight, in order to respond to the changing conditions of the atmosphere and the flight and performance demands of the aircraft.
It results in a 40 to 50 percent increase in the ability of the engine to convert fuel to thrust. Subsequently fuel efficiency would ultimately lead to a 30 to 35 per cent reduction in fuel used at supersonic speeds. HyperMach plans to build its engine by the end of the decade and hopes to have the plane itself constructed by 2025.
