BETTER THAN CONCORDE: Boom Supersonic ~ New York to London in THREE HOURS

2200

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. While regular aircraft fly around .82 Mach, the Boom Supersonic will fly at 2.2 Mach – faster even than Concorde.

The owners of Boom are testing their technology in a smaller version. XB-1 is a one-third scale realization of the Boom passenger airliner. It will demonstrate in flight the key technologies for practical supersonic travel. XB-1 is the first independently developed supersonic jet and history’s fastest civil aircraft. It is under construction now and will fly next year.
