“Aviation hasn’t seen a giant leap in decades. Overture is revolutionary in its design, and will fundamentally change the way we think about distance,” said Boom founder and CEO Blake Scholl.
Overture is the supersonic aircraft that a few days ago, presented its new design at the Farnborough International Airshow. This model is undoubtedly the great result of 26 million hours of simulated software design. It also passed the evaluation of 51 design iterations and also passed the five wind tunnel tests.
Overture is a blend of innovation, sustainability, and futurism. This aircraft has space for sixty-five to eighty passengers and will fly thanks to four engines that allow it to reach a speed of Mach 1.7 with a range of 4,250 nautical miles, equivalent to 7,900 kilometers.
At the same time, this aircraft is designed to run on 100% sustainable jet fuel, and the design of its engines is suited to reduce noise and meet regulatory noise requirements.
Its contoured fuselage design technique allows the Overture to maximize fuel efficiency at supersonic speed.
Another factor that sets the Overture apart from traditional aircraft is the carbon composite material from which it is constructed. This material is lighter but more stable than traditional composites, which improves the aircraft’s aerodynamics.
During the presentation of the Overture, Boom Supersonic, the company working on the development of the aircraft, announced an alliance with Northrop Grumman to carry out special mission variants of the Overture to be manufactured for the U.S. Government.
The Overture is undoubtedly a prototype that is paving the way for major developments in the aeronautical sector and a great promise for technological improvements in aviation.
