Hyperflight Transport Network
China will develop a supersonic speed Hyperflight transport network with a designed speed of up to 4,000 km per hour, China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp. (CASIC) recently announced in Wuhan, central China’s Hubei Province. According to sources with CASIC, Hyperflight speeds will be 10 times that of traditional high-speed trains and five times that of the passenger airplanes.
It is said the company would complete the Hyperflight program in three steps. The first step will be building a regional inter-city network with speeds of 1,000 km per hour. The second step is building a national network linking major city clusters with speeds of 2,000 km per hour, and the third step will be an international network with speeds of 4,000 km per hour to link countries along the Belt and Road routes.
