Which Companies Are Competing In The Supersonic Flight Race?

It seems like a less-than-ideal time to be developing supersonic passenger travel, but these companies have had their projects in the works for many years up until now.

And its ho hum again they are just looting pocket books nothing new much like the Jetsons car that turns into an airplane. There never will be one o those that really works. Same with this electric airplane deal. Both of those who hve flown the 208 and the beaver both have no useful load due to the need for too many batteries.
No useful load and minimal range were also true for all of the early airplanes. Many small incremental improvements have gotten us to where we are today. If you think no improvements will be made to electric flight, you are a poor student of history.
I'm sure these aircraft will do well for executive business travel as well as luxury private aircraft for the wealthy. Whether regular business and leasure travelers will be willing to pay extra for the time saved will depend on how much more expensive the tickets are.
