Reuters reports that a U.S. push for new global standards to kickstart its fledgling supersonic jet industry is facing resistance by European nations. according to documents and people familiar with the situation, those nations want tough rules on noise. Fifteen years after Concorde’s last flight, U.S. regulators are weighing rule changes to allow testing of early-stage supersonic jets. This amid plans for American-made business and small passenger jets due in service by the mid-2020s. But the new industry could face delays at the United Nations aviation agency. There the United States and European countries - including France, Germany and Britain - are squaring off over new noise rules needed for the jets to fly. This according to five sources speaking to Reuters about confidential talks. The previously unreported dispute follows a 1990s clash on noise standards, when the European Union wanted to ban noisy older U.S.-made jets like the Boeing 727 from its airports and Washington threatened to retaliate by banning the Anglo-French Concorde.
