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.
