Supersonic Commercial Plane

  • Context: The United Airlines has announced its plan to order 15 supersonic airlines from the USA-based startup Boom.
  • Boom’s Overture Supersonic Aircraft would travel at the speed of Mach 1.7 or 1,805 kmphwith a range of 4,250 nautical miles and reach an altitude of 60,000 ft.
  • The new supersonic “Overture” aircraft will become the world’s fastest commercial airliner, reducing travel time by about half of today’s planes. The commercial use is expected to be in force by 2029.
  • The company has claimed to produce an eco-friendly aircraft with net zero carbon emissions with 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). It aims for zero overland noise.
  • The airliner will be equipped with advanced aerodynamics and carbon composite materials through which there will be significant reduction in development and maintenance costs.
