Paradoxal

Just as with wild superyacht concepts, many designers can’t resist trying to push the boundaries of flight with outlandish and incredible private jet concepts. From vertical take-offs and Mach 24 speed to lowering carbon emissions and providing panoramic views, here are some of the most amazing private jet concepts around.

Paradoxal

Designed by industrial engineer Charles Bombardier, Paradoxal is a supersonic jet concept capable of taking passengers from Los Angeles to Sydney in less than three hours thanks to its ability to fly at suborbital altitude. Designed with feedback received from his earlier Skreemr and antipode concepts, Bombardier believes the science behind Paradoxal makes it a viable proposition for the new era of aviation which addresses the issue of cost, practicality and heat build up which have plagued other supersonic jet concepts.

In layman's terms, Paradoxal would use two R4E engines to provide enough power for lift off and the climb to 60,000 feet where the jet would reach Mach 3 speed. At this point the engine would inject liquid oxygen into the gas exhaust turning it into a rocket engine and propelling Paradoxal to supersonic speeds at an altitude of 40 miles. At mid-flight the Earth's curvature would be visible and - should a panoramic rooftop capable of withstanding heat and stress be created - could treat passengers in theatre-style seating to incredible views.
