Spike Aero To Fly Subsonic Prototype of SSBJ This Year
The scale prototype of its S-512 Quiet Supersonic Jet will demonstrate low-speed aerodynamic flight characteristics.
Spike Aerospace expects to certify its $60 to $80 million, low-boom, Mach 1.6 SSBJ by 2023. To keep on that path, it plans to fly a low-speed demonstrator this summer and a supersonic prototype by the end of next year. (Photo: Spike Aerospace)
