[7] [11] Supersonic jets could be exempted from the FAA takeoff noise regulations, reducing their fuel consumption by 20–30% by using narrower engines optimised for acceleration over limiting noise. [4] Flying may receive financial compensation for products purchased through this site.

Airframe maintenance costs should be similar to other carbon fiber airliners. An unnamed European carrier also holds options for 15 aircraft; the two deals total 5 billion dollars. The first Boom airliners may begin carrying paying passengers by 2029. The Overture is currently listed at $200 million in 2020 dollars.
Future aircraft will only fly supersonic over the water. As of November 2016, no engine manufacturer can develop such an engine based on sales of only 10 options. Fly twice as fast to experience more of the world’s people, places, and cultures. [6] When Boom Technology in a virtual event last week rolled out its tri-engine XB-1—a one-third scale version of the company’s future supersonic Overture passenger aircraft—it proved the Denver company was serious about developing a worthy follow-on to the Mach 2 Concorde whose last flight took place nearly 17 years ago. Unlike other projects to develop a new supersonic aircraft, only Boom Aerospace is focusing on large passenger numbers and not private jets. [17], In September 2020, the company announced that they have been contracted by the United States Air Force to develop the Overture for possible use as Air Force One.

Larger-diameter fans have higher cruise thrust requirements for a higher fuel-burn and lower range but are preferred for higher bypass and lower takeoff noise. 11.19 XB-1 will be equipped with a forward-looking visual system to give our pilots maximum visibility from the cockpit. The same fuel burn enables fares similar to subsonic business class among other factors. [19], Boom wants to use moderate bypass turbofans without afterburners, unlike Concorde's Rolls-Royce/Snecma Olympus. Window or aisle? Last month, Boom’s Overture also captured the attention of the US Air Force as a possible military transport, because the USAF and the Defense Department manage transportation for senior members of the US government. [13] For long-range routes like San Francisco–Tokyo and Los Angeles–Sydney, 30 lie-flat first-class seats could be proposed alongside 15 business-class seats. [7] Commute to work across the ocean or take a day-trip to see the world, across more than 500 routes. Completed Overture airliners are expected to come rolling off the assembly line by 2025, with supersonic service to begin by 2029. Boom’s innovations include developing one of the highest-efficiency civil supersonic engine intakes ever tested, demonstrating Boom’s ability to deliver a breakthrough in propulsive efficiency for Overture. It expects to begin wind tunnel tests for the Overture in 2021, and start construction of a manufacturing facility in 2022, with capacity for 5 to 10 aircraft monthly.

With 500 viable routes, there could be a market for 1,000 supersonic airliners with business class fares.

It should be 170 ft (52 m) long by 60 ft (18 m) wide and could accommodate 45 passengers including 10 in first class or 55 with a 75 in (190 cm) seat pitch. [23], Data from Aviation International News[19], "Boom rolls out XB-1 supersonic demonstrator, lays out Overture timeline", "Boom Advances Overture Supersonic Airliner As Demonstrator Takes Shape", "Boom CEO sees market for 1,000 supersonic passenger jets by 2035", "Will Boom succeed where Concorde failed? Boom also needs to address the nose up attitude on landing. [1] With 500 viable routes, there could be a market for 1,000 supersonic airliners with business class fares. At the 2017 Paris Air Show, 51 commitments were added for a backlog of 76 with significant deposits.

From the balcony overlooking Boom's hangar floor, you can identify XB-1's nose, cockpit, main landing gear bay structure, wings & tooling for its nearly 50-foot forward fuselage.
[1], Its wing configuration is a conventional compound delta for low supersonic drag, it is designed to be like a 75% scale model of Concorde: no low sonic boom unlike the SAI Quiet Supersonic Transport (QSST), or laminar supersonic flow technology from the Aerion AS2. [8] With 4,500 nmi (8,300 km) of range, transpacific flights would require a refueling stop: San Francisco and Tokyo would be 5 hours and 30 minutes apart; Los Angeles and Sydney would be 6 hours and 45 minutes apart. The Boom Overture is a new aircraft concept under development to bring back supersonic travel to the regular aircraft flyer. Boom Overture Interior Cabin Seats Side View.
