In a world where time equals money, people try to travel fast and efficient. Business people are no exception to this statement and while the world market gets more and more global, the need to travel large distances in short amounts of times evolves. Regular business jets already provide efficient transportation in the short range market, but in the long range segment there is still room for improvement. This market niche can be filled with the development of a long range, supersonic business jet, which can provide intercontinental flight at velocities higher than the speed of sound. In this way, it becomes possible to enjoy a nice breakfast in the morning in Amsterdam, and to sign a business agreement four hours later in New York. Regular business jets would need almost eight hours for such a transatlantic trip.
