Affordable, profitable, and sustainable supersonic airplanes

Boom was founded with the mission of making the world dramatically more accessible through affordable, profitable, and sustainable supersonic flight. Our vision is a world that is more local, enabled by affordable high-speed transportation. Boom is based in Denver, Colorado where we are designing Overture, our production model aircraft, capable of Mach 1.7 cruise speed (roughly twice as fast as modern airliners). Boom has received orders and pre-orders from United Airlines, American Airlines, and Japan Airlines, and we also have a strategic partnership with Northrop Grumman for government/defense use cases. In early 2023, we broke ground on the Overture Superfactory in Greensboro, NC, where Overture will be assembled. Overture is the first commercial airliner designed to run on 100% sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), allowing it to have net zero carbon operations. Boom has already developed an operational prototype, history’s first independently developed supersonic jet. Boom’s world-class engineering team comes from places including SpaceX, Boeing, Gulfstream, Virgin Galactic, Scaled Composites, NASA, and Bombardier. We have uniquely challenging and world-changing opportunities for the most talented aerospace engineers, designers, and business people.
