New York to L.A. in Two Hours

From Wired:
A new generation of private jets could trigger a boom in luxury supersonic flight -- without the sonic boom. Flying at up to Mach 1.8, these luxurious private jets would cut the travel time between Seattle and Tokyo to about 5 hours, instead of 9.5 hours.

General Electric, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce have submitted designs for the QSST engine that suppress take-off and landing noise, according to backer Supersonic Aerospace International of Nevada. The company was started by Gulfstream founder Allen Paulson's son J. Michael Paulson in 2000 and claims 22 patents on the aircraft. Rendering Courtesy: Supersonic Aerospace International
