Flying across the world from Europe to a destination such as Australia currently takes around 20 hours in a regular passenger jet.

But a Swiss start-up is looking to cut that journey time down to just over four hours – with a hypersonic, hydrogen-powered passenger jet.

Destinus has been testing its prototype aircraft for the past couple of years, announcing successful test flights of its second prototype – Eiger – at the end of 2022.

Now the company has announced participation in a programme run by Spain’s Ministry of Science, as part of the Spanish government’s plans to develop hydrogen-powered supersonic flights.

The agency overseeing the ministry’s programme, the Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico e Industrial, selected the project as a strategic initiative under its Plan de Tecnologías Aeronáuticas (PTA).


With an overall current investment of €12 million, the project involves companies and technology centres as well as Spanish universities.

“We are delighted to have been awarded these grants, especially because they are a clear sign that Destinus is aligned with the strategic lines of Spain and Europe to advance hydrogen flight,” Davide Bonetti, VP Business Development and Products for Destinus, said…READ MORE

Martin comments: Personally I consider hydrogen technology immensely cleaner and more viable as a clean energy solution than EV technology, so I would like to think this goes somewhere.

Military tech watchers may note that if this technology is being promoted in the public domain its already old hat in the clandestine black-budget world, and yet this morning the MSM news was raising alarm about Russia and China’s hypersonic missile tech that can do Mach 5. Mach 5 is nothing these days. Going back a few years, there was a news item about Lockheed Martin losing one if its MACH 20 prototypes in the ocean. The US was at one time talking up it’s hypersonic drone with missile launch ports that can drop nuclear warheads to a number of preprogrammed destinations around the world in minutes. I have a long memory and am not fooled for one minute by claims that the US is falling behind in military and defense technologies.
