BOOM SUPERSONIC

MISSION

To make the world dramatically more accessible

When we fly twice as fast, cities rarely visited become major travel destinations. We can attend meetings in far-off places and return for evenings with loved ones. Global leaders can solve crises in-person and children grow up in a world where nothing is foreign.

A new travel standard

We’re building a faster, more affordable, and convenient future for travel, so you can spend more time where it matters.

“I’ll know we’ve succeeded when high-speed flight is considered normal.” --Blake Scholl, Founder & CEO
