Boom supersonic passenger aircraft

Boom supersonic passenger aircraft, aims to fly you from New York to London in half the time.

Supersonic flight has existed for over 50 years but hasn’t been efficient enough for routine travel. Until now.

Boomsupersonic reveals a breakthrough aerodynamic design, an engine technology and advanced composite materials, enabling an ultra-fast airliner as efficient and affordable as business class in today’s subsonic wide-body airliners.

A 45 seat airplane, 2.6 x faster than any other airliner. Mach 2.2 or 1,451 MPH.

Our XB-1 demonstrates the key technologies for efficient supersonic flight: 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 late 2017.
