If NASA went there then the US military has a vested interest in making it work.
Supersonic over land is not a new thing and doing it more politely probably happens.

Might be the wrong place to ask, but what is the best way to go about getting your private pilots license and pursuing a career doing that?

>>
>>895674
Why can't you fly supersonic over land in the US?
>>
>>896194
federal law
>>
federal law covers sonic boom overpressure limitations, not an outright ban on supersonic travel. So, the idea is if you can muffle the boom enough with these anteater noses, you might clear that bar. The military has the obvious interest of reducing their acoustic signature so funded some of the interest in the boom reducation studies along with NASA, the more recent of which is reconfiguring the nose of an F-5 that had a decent improvement. But the acoustic problem is not just the nose, the rear shock from the end of the aircraft is also an issue that requires a lot more thought. NASA felt a new build with the nose work at least built in and not retrofitted should clear the FAA rules though.

Private pilots are not allowed to be paid for their services. Its a first step towards commercial pilot. Protip: "commercial pilot" means ONLY that you're allowed to be paid. It does NOT mean that you'll be captain of a 747 the next day.
>>
>>895784
The whole business jet business is highly cyclic, you'll probably drown in work in the boom years and be out of a job when the economy goes downhill.

>Wrong?
Not a pilot, so explain. Can a private pilot be paid to fly? Can a commercial pilot do anything a private can't, other than get paid?
>>
>>897576
>Private pilots
>The private pilot certificate is the certificate held by the majority of active pilots. It allows command of any aircraft (subject to appropriate ratings) for any non-commercial purpose, and gives almost unlimited authority to fly under visual flight rules (VFR). Passengers may be carried and flight in furtherance of a business is permitted; however, a private pilot may not be compensated in any way for services as a pilot, although passengers can pay a pro rata share of flight expenses, such as fuel or rental costs. Private pilots may also operate charity flights, subject to certain restrictions, and may participate in similar activities, such as Angel Flight, Civil Air Patrol and many others.

>Private pilots are not allowed to be paid for their services.

RIGHT?
Am I missing something here, and are these not equivalent statements? That's pretty much the way I thought it was. Friends can chip in for gas, but a private pilot is not allowed to make any money on the deal.
>>897563
Is there some subtle interpretation you would like to trot out for us?
>>
>>897576
"Being paid" is the definition of "commercial." Dude can't explain otherwise, cause he's an idiot...but I look forward to seeing him try.
>>
>>897563
Dude I have the FAR AIM sitting right next to me(Federal aviation regulations and aeronautical information manual) and it says you cant at section 61.113. You can only split the cost of operations and you cant pay less than anyone else.

If I could have any private aircraft for luxury travel it would be the FW-200, not a joke. This plane can land anywhere, no need for airports. It set a distance record right before WW2 by flying from Berlin to Tokyo. I would replace its 4 radial engine with 2 turboprops for more speed and range.

Get a seat up front as they had a habit of "landing anywhere" rather like this.
As a design their structural integrity field was rather lacking.

Like everyone else has said private pilots cannot get directly paid but they can split the costs of flying evenly with any passengers they are carrying. Getting a commercial license does allow you to legally get paid for flying but you can't just go out and start flying people around for money. If you had a plane and wanted to charge people to fly on it then you also need an air taxi certificate. Without you basically have to get hired by a company to get paid to fly. All this is United States btw

Single-engine, just as the original Grumman F9F design was. The US Navy has long wavered between single-engine and twin-engine fighter designs.

Or you could become a CFI, and say the flight the customer is paying for is "Instruction received" and log it as such.
Then you don't need a charter certificate ;)
>>
>>921254
Yea, but that only kinda works. If it was brought up in any juristidction that you made $10,000 off of flight instruction in less than a year and none of your students ever passed the test for their private pilot liscense than that is probably grounds for the FAA to revoke your liscense, have you labeled as a con and be, and at worst have a lawsuit on your hands.
