Spike S-512 Supersonic Business Jet — Overland Flights
- World’s First Quiet Supersonic Jet
- Cruising Speed of Mach 1.6
- Very low sonic boom of less than 75 PLdB
- Flights overland without disturbing people
- Low impact on migratory birds, marine life and wildlife
The Spike S-512 Supersonic Business Jet will be the first aircraft aerodynamically designed to offer patent-pending Quiet Supersonic Flight Technology. This will enable it to operate at its full cruising speed of Mach 1.6 (1,100 mph) without producing a loud, disturbing sonic boom on the ground.
In fact, the Spike S-512 is the only supersonic jet in active development that will fly at Mach 1.6 supersonic speeds to any city without the disruptive sonic boom effect that is prohibited globally.
Without a doubt, customers purchasing an aircraft for $100m+ expect to take full advantage of maximum supersonic speed and time savings without compromise. By design, the Spike S-512 Supersonic Business Jet does not have such limitations. It is for those who need to get to their destinations, whether over land or water, in half the time required by legacy aircraft.
Spike Aerospace believes that any successful supersonic jet program must ensure that the aircraft can operate at its full speed without producing a sonic boom. The Concorde produced such a tremendous sonic boom effect that it was restricted to flights over transoceanic routes – primarily NYC to London or Paris. The S-512 was designed from the ground up to travel at supersonic speed quietly and efficiently, opening up destinations worldwide to travelers who demand the best and fastest private air transport.
Reducing the noise created by supersonic flight has been a primary focus at Spike Aerospace, and the resulting development of the S-512 represents a significant achievement thanks to our ongoing engineering efforts. The Spike S-512 has a sonic signature expected to be less than 75 PLdb (perceived loudness level) at ground level, sounding like a soft clap or muted background noise. This is what we refer to as Quiet Supersonic Flight. This is the future of aviation.
