Denver Based Aeronautics Company Develop Sustainable Supersonic Passenger Plane

A Denver based aeronautics company called Boom Supersonic has developed a sustainable supersonic passenger plane that will use 100% sustainable aviation fuel.

A new aeronautics company has created a “sustainable” new aircraft in the nearly 20 years since the supersonic Concorde was retired. It will transport 60 to 80 passengers up to roughly 5,000 miles at a time while traveling at Mach 1.7.

The “Overture” was created by Denver-based Boom Supersonic and will utilize “100% sustainable aviation fuel” (SAF) to power four smaller wing-mounted engines that will maintain a balanced weight and temperature. Additionally, carbon composite materials will be used to create a lightweight yet durable air frame.

The US Air Force and two airlines have already signed contracts with the company. Once safety standards are satisfied, United Airlines will commit to buying 15 of the aircraft, with an option to buy a further 35. While the business is developing tailored applications for the government, Japan Airlines has also placed a pre-order for 20 of them.

SAF achieves the same performance as conventional jet fuel while (allegedly) having a lower carbon footprint by using a variety of waste items, including leftover cooking oil and animal fat.

On the website for Boom, it is stated that “Environmental performance is being considered in all aspects of Overture, from design and production to flight and end-of-life recycling.” “The engineering team prioritizes circularity by repurposing used tooling, recycling components on the shop floor and leveraging additive manufacturing techniques that result in less manufacturing waste and lighter, more fuel-efficient products.”

The plane will arrive at numerous locations considerably more quickly than traditional airliners, as noted by the NY Post.

New York City to London:

  • Current travel time: Approximately 7 hours
  • Overture travel time: 3 hours 30 minutes

Los Angeles to Sydney:

  • Current travel time: Approximately 15 hours
  • Overture travel time: 8 hours

Tokyo to Seattle:

  • Current travel time: Approximately 9 hours
  • Overture travel time: 4 hours 30 minutes

Boom’s website states that Overture’s takeoffs “will blend in with existing long-haul fleets with no afterburners and buzz-free engines, resulting in a quieter experience for both passengers and airport communities” and that the distinctive sonic boom made when an aircraft exceeds the speed of sound will occur over the ocean to avoid disturbing people on the ground.
