What is next in business aviation: a move towards sustainability or supersonic flight?

By Jet Maintenance Solutions

Historically speaking, aviation has always been a gas-guzzling business. As the world demands a new and more sustainable approach to travel, industry, and everyday life, the aviation sector refuses to be left behind. While major aircraft companies like Airbus and Boeing focus on minimising fuel consumption, other start-ups see potential in supersonic flight. The question arises: what is next in business aviation, are we going to fly slower, but with zero-emissions, or break the supersonic barrier in fuel powered aircraft and circumnavigate the world in a matter of hours?

While there is no clear answer to this question, the arguments being made for both modes of transportation are worthwhile.
