The supersonic “Sky OV” concept plane designed by Oscar Viñals, is super quiet at subsonic and supersonic speeds, its engines are based on pulse detonation, which is more efficient than current turbojet engines, with skills similar to a ramjet.
totally eco-friendly, powered by hydrogen fuel and electric power, capable of covering long distances with a very low hydrogen fuel consumption, zero emissions, and a cruise speed of Mach 1.2.
The next generation of commercial airplanes could be radically “disruptive” to current airplanes… fuselages, engines, power sources, and other aviation systems, that today look like Sci-fi, would be real.
In the future, airplane engines will become lighter, quieter, and more efficient, and the experience of flying will be considerably different than today, with more space, special commodities, all kinds of luxuries… etc.
