A new plane nicknamed ‘Son of the Concorde’ could see passengers fly from London to New York in just three-and-a-half hours.
According to the company, the new plane will be ‘the world’s fastest airliner, optimized for speed, safety, and sustainability.
The aircraft will be able to carry 65-80 passengers “at twice the speed of today’s airliners and running on 100 per cent sustainable aviation fuel.”
According to Boom Supersonic, the impressive design is the culmination of “26 million core-hours of simulated software designs, five wind tunnel tests, and the careful evaluation of 51 full design iterations.”
It boasts four powerful engines and “the world’s first automated noise reduction system,” meaning it’ll be an incredibly tranquil ride.
The design and the speed of Overture is something that’s pushing air travel forward, with Boom Founder and CEO Blake Scholl saying of the development, “Aviation has not seen a giant leap in decades. Overture is revolutionary in its design, and it will fundamentally change how we think about distance.”
“With more than 600 routes across the globe, Overture will make the world dramatically more accessible for tens of millions of passengers.”
