Supersonic is here

History’s first independently-developed supersonic jet. XB-1 will demonstrate key technologies for safe, efficient and sustainable supersonic travel.

The new era of travel

Boom is building the world’s fastest civil aircraft, Overture. Flights twice as fast mean we can go twice as far—bringing more people, places, and cultures into our lives.
Japan Airlines and Virgin Group are future Overture operators, with 30 aircraft on pre-order.

The times are changing

Goodbye jetlag. Commute to work across the ocean or take a day-trip to see the world.

No more painful, three-day trips to make a single meeting. Leave from San-Francisco a whole day later and still make your morning meeting in Tokyo. With supersonic travel, no destination will feel out of reach.
