Always wanted a chance to fly on the Concorde, but was never able to for any reason? Well, Boom Supersonic’s Overture should do the trick. The company announced this week that they’ve partnered with Rolls-Royce to build the propulsion system for the company’s flagship supersonic passenger aircraft, Overture. Teams from both parties will investigate whether an existing engine architecture can be adapted for supersonic flight, while Boom’s internal team continues to develop the airframe configuration. Read more for two videos and additional information.
The main goal for both companies is a shared commitment to sustainability. Both realize that supersonic passenger travel has to be compatible with a net-zero carbon future, and the two teams will work together to make this a reality in Overture’s design as well as operations. Boom’s XB-1 demonstrator jet will officially be revealed on October 7, 2020.
