The new ultra-fast super-jet from Airbus Group will take off from the Paris-Rochester international airport on April 24, 2018.
It will be the world’s fastest flying aircraft.
But it will be even faster than the world record of 9:05.6 that was set by the Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II stealth fighter jet last year.
That jet can fly at more than twice the speed of sound and reach speeds of Mach 5.1.
The new jet will be powered by a new engine that uses four Pratt & Whitney PW-140 turbofan engines.
The Pratt & Whitmores PW-160 turbofans are the same as those used in the Super Hornet and the new Delta Fly by having two turbofanks each that can spin up to 15,000 revolutions per minute.
The four-engine Delta Fly will be much faster than any other jet currently in the air.
It is expected to be able to cruise at Mach 5 at supersonic speeds for about a minute and a half, making it the fastest jet ever to make the transatlantic flight.
The jet will also have an endurance of 1,200 hours.
“This is the next chapter in the evolution of the world aviation industry,” said John Feltgen, chairman and CEO of Airbus Group.
“It’s a big step forward in terms of design, technology and production capability.”
The Delta Fly By will have a top speed of Mach 2.9 and a range of about 1,300 nautical miles.
Its maximum takeoff weight will be 2,300 tons.
The aircraft is expected have a range and altitude of up to 500 miles.
The Delta flyby is the biggest development of the new Super Hornets and Delta Flybys to date, and it will give Airbus Group a foothold in the fast-growing commercial jet market.
Airbus Group has a deep-pocketed international aerospace business, with a global fleet of more than 80 aircraft and the world leading Airbus-built Rafale fighter jet.
Airbus has a 20 percent stake in the American company General Atomics in the United Arab Emirates.
The company is the world leader in advanced airframe technology and the market leader in precision aircraft, according to its website.
Airbus is one of the largest manufacturers of passenger planes in the world.
Airbus’s aircraft include the A380, A320, A350, A400 and A500, with the A350 having the largest fleet of planes.
