Vision of Supersonic Flight

Vision of Supersonic Flight

As part of The Future of Travel, the worlds fastest passenger aircraft will transform travel to, from, and through the Middle East

Boom Supersonic (Boom) was founded with the purpose of removing barriers to experiencing the planet. To realize this vision, Boom is building a Mach-2.2 airliner the fastest civil aircraft ever made capable of operating economically at current subsonic business-class fares. Booms airliner will fly 2.6 times faster than todays commercial aircraft.

Earlier this year, Boom debuted its supersonic passenger airliner, slated to enter service in 2023, to audiences in the Middle East. Booms mission complements the United Arab Emirates strategy of embracing new and innovative transportation solutions and the UAE is ideally positioned to become a supersonic hub connecting Europe, Asia, and Oceania.

In June, Boom participated in the Paris Air Show, announcing 76 orders for its airliner. At the same time, the manufacturer unveiled the newest design of its XB-1 supersonic demonstrator aircraft, which is slated to fly in late 2018.

The Gulf is home to the worlds most elevated airline experiences, said Blake Scholl, Booms founder and chief executive officer. This years theme in Dubai is The Future of Travel; supersonic flight is the biggest leap forward since the jet, removing time barriers and allowing passengers to make business and leisure trips to destinations that otherwise would have been too far. Were excited to be here sharing our progress toward a faster future.

On Booms supersonic airliner, a trip from Dubai to Sydney shrinks from 15 hours to just over 8, enabling a weekend holiday in Australia. Passengers traveling to London save 5 hours round-trip, enabling a day trip from Dubai to London.

Boom Supersonic is a Denver-based company dedicated to removing the barriers to experiencing the planet, starting by building a Mach-2.2 airliner economical enough to operate with business-class fares. Boom is backed by venture capital firms including 8VC, RRE, Lightbank, Y Combinator, and Caffeinated Capital, as well as angel investors including Sam Altman, Paul Graham, and Greg McAdoo.
