‘Boom Supersonic’ is developing passenger plane that will travel Mach 2.2 is 1,451 MPH — 2.6x faster than other airliners.

Supersonic flight has existed for 70 years, but until now, it hasn’t been efficient enough for routine travel. Boom’s airliner enables fares 75% lower than Concorde, about the same price as today’s business class tickets.

This advance in efficiency is made possible by a breakthrough aerodynamic design, state-of-the-art engines, and advanced composites.

key technologies for efficient supersonic flight include – advanced aerodynamic design, light-weight materials that can withstand supersonic flight, and an efficient super-cruise propulsion system.

Engineering development of XB-1 (“Baby Boom”) is proceeding rapidly, with aerodynamics defined, systems ground tested, and initial structural components in fabrication. Vehicle assembly starts shortly, with first flight planned for next year.
