    Ever since the Concorde ceased to operate the idea of going supersonic once again for the average person has been a talking point. A number of companies have shown interest in this field with even Gulfstream putting forth sketches of their variant in the last few years. However, the closest we have been to this ideal is through companies like Aerion with the AS2 and BOOM with the XB-1. NASA is not to be left out, they are working with Lockheed Martin to produce a supersonic design called the QUESST (Quiet Supersonic Transport). The agency has completed the preliminary design review (PDR) of its Quiet Supersonic Transport (QueSST) aircraft design. QueSST is the initial design stage of NASA’s planned low-boom flight demonstration (LBFD) experimental airplane. NASA partnered with lead contractor Lockheed Martin in February 2016 for the QueSST preliminary design.
