Spike is developing a 100-million-dollar supersonic jet. The jet can allegedly fly from the UK to New York in just 3 hours. As the name implies, the jet will fly at a speed higher than that of sound. Supersonic aircraft are still the thing of the future but Spike has made reservations available for the aircraft. This implies that they might have actually pulled it off.

Spike Supersonic Jet S-512
The S-512 supersonic aircraft by Spike Aerospace can accommodate 12 to 18 passengers at once. The images of the final proposal make it abundantly evident that the aircraft is for the ultra-rich who are eager to reach their destinations. The aircraft combines high-speed flight with high-end luxury.
The S-512, according to Spike, will be able to reach speeds of 1,100 miles per hour (Mach 1.6), which will allow its passengers to travel the globe at least 500 miles per hour faster than a current civilian aircraft.
However, Spike has not yet given a detailed rundown of the technology used in the jet. They do claim that the aircraft is well worth the price and is necessary for important people, who need to get to places fast. According to its FAQ page, the cabin’s lack of windows is a key factor in the quiet trips. Since Spike is certain that its craft won’t produce sonic booms when traveling at supersonic speeds, it is able to fly at high altitudes even over land.
Unsurprisingly, they want people to get their hands on this one as soon as possible
