Right now it takes 7 hours to travel from London to New York. How would you like to be able to get from these 2 cities in just one hour?

Airbus filed an application for a patent of what it is describing as an “ultra-rapid air vehicle and related method of aerial locomotion” back in 2003, and now that application has been approved by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Could this be the future of air travel?

Being referred to as a hypersonic aircraft, this plane will use a jet engine that involves turbojets, ramjets, and a rocket motor. Airbus’ goal is to make this aircraft travel at twice the speed of the Concorde – that equates to around 2,700 miles per hour.

If successful, other long-haul flights will also be able to be reclassified as short-haul journeys. Anyone up for a trip from Paris to San Francisco in say 3 hours?
