“We are very excited to have industry leaders MAYA Simulation and Siemens PLM Software join our collaboration to build the world’s first supersonic business jet. Their innovative culture and deep expertise in CAE will be invaluable in developing an aircraft that will change aviation” said Vik Kachoria, President & CEO of Spike Aerospace.

“MAYA Simulation is proud to be contributing to innovative projects like the Spike Supersonic Jet. We look forward to supporting Spike with our engineering expertise using Siemens software in the development of this advanced, next-generation aircraft” said Inta Zvagulis, President of MAYA Simulation.

Designing and bringing to market the Spike S-512 Quiet Supersonic Jet is a multi-disciplinary effort that requires collaboration from industry experts in every aspect of aerospace engineering. Spike’s global partners now include industry leaders in aerodynamic design, structural analysis, engines, manufacturing, and computer aided engineering.

The Spike S-512 will be the first supersonic jet designed with Quiet Supersonic Flight (QSF) technology, the proprietary innovation developed by Spike to minimize sonic booms by optimizing aerodynamic design. Flying at supersonic cruising speed, the Spike S-512 will cut flight times in half at a cost equivalent to a traditional business class ticket.
