“The basic parameters of the initial high speed aircraft design include a targeted Mach 3 certified delta-wing aircraft that would have capacity for 9 to 19 people at an altitude above 60,000 feet and would also be able to incorporate custom cabin layouts to address customer needs, including business or first class seating arrangements. The aircraft design also aims to help lead the way toward use of state-of-the-art sustainable aviation fuel. Baselining sustainable technologies and techniques into the aircraft design early on is expected to also act as a catalyst to adoption in the rest of the aviation community. ”Virgin Galactic sees a range of operational scenarios for the new aircraft, including service on long-distance commercial aviation routes. The aircraft will operate to and from traditional passenger airports and is expected to integrate into the existing airport infrastructure and international airspace around the world.
