In Support of Repealing the Ban on Civil Supersonic Flight

Yesterday, the Committee for Justice joined the Niskanen Center, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), Competitive Enterprise Institute, the R Street Institute, and TechFreedom in calling on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation to overturn the ban on supersonic flight.

Fifty years after the Concorde's maiden flight, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Act of 2018 gives Congress the opportunity to revive supersonic transportation by requiring the FAA to develop reasonable noise standards that would be informed by noise levels tolerated for non-aviation.
