Geeking out in the Cessna Citation X from KVNY to KPGA (Van Nuys to Page), the fastest production passenger jet, top speed Mach 0.93, (700MPH), ceiling over 50,000'. Takeoff acceleration felt like a Ferrari, and the cruise was smooth and quiet.
On Thursday, electric aircraft start-up Zunum Aero announced its plans to introduce a 12-seat hybrid-to-electric jet by 2022.
"With this announcement, we are coming out and saying our initial product will be a nine to 12 seat airplane," Zunum CTO, Matt Knapp told Business Insider in an interview. "It flies at about 300 mph and is really optimized for regional flights."
That means everything from short "puddle jumper" flights to longer routes of as much as 700 miles between cities such Boston and Washington D.C, Knapp said.
In April, the three-year-old company made news by earning financial backing from Boeing HorizonX fund and JetBlue Technology Ventures.
"We believe that the regional transportation industry is ripe for disruption and we're excited to support Zunum and its efforts to help introduce a new era of aviation," JetBlue Technology Ventures president Bonny Simi said in a statement.
Zunum believes its aircraft will be able to cut door-to-door travels on trips of less than 1,000 miles by more than half. For instance, the company claims a trip from San Jose, California to Los Angeles could be completed in just 2 hours and 15 minutes door-to-door instead of the four hours and 40 minutes it takes now. #Boeing #ZunumAero.

Quote: "Respect the men and woman fighting in the Armed Forces, no matter where you are. I don't care what country you're from because, these people risk their lives for people they don't even know. Don't go by stero-type thoughts and think about the individuals not the country they're from. War is terrible but for the most part both sides are fighting for the same reasons or completely different reasons."
