Couldn’t find an up to date thread about this and the one I did find didn’t have any info. Just a pic. So here are the highlights;
Boom founder and chief executive Blake Scholl told the Guardian. “This isn’t science fiction, we are actually doing this. You will be able to fly New York to London in three-and-a-half hours for $5,000 return, [which is roughly] the same as [the cost] of business class.”
The aircraft is currently in the prototyping phase – but the team is aiming to fly a test aircraft in Colorado in late 2017, followed by supersonic test flights near Edwards Air Force Base in California
The Guardian also reported that Scholl has signed a letter of intent with a major London-based airline, (other than Richard Branson) which wants to buy $2 billion (£1.42 billion) worth of his jets.
Between them, the team of pilots, engineers and builders behind Boom have started six companies and contributed to the design of over 30 new airplanes.
