Boom Supersonic Jet Plan Boosted By $10m JAL Funding

Boom Supersonic Jet Plan Boosted By $10m JAL Funding

The Japanese airline yesterday said it has invested US$10 million in Boom Supersonic, a Denver-based start-up aiming to build a new generation of supersonic jets promising three-and-a-half-hour flights from London to NY for an "affordable" US$5,000 return as soon as 2025. That reduces the risk of noise pollution caused by a sonic boom.

The new-generation supersonic aircraft, scheduled to be launched in mid-2020s or later, has a maximum flying range of 8,334 kilometres at a speed of Mach 2.2 or 2,335 kilometres per hour.

Rosalie had a great personality and was very amusing . "She was daddy's girl and mommy's princess", she added. She wanted to be a lawyer and wanted to help the world to be a better place. "The world lost a treasure".


Boom Supersonic is a Denver-based company dedicated to removing the barriers to experiencing the planet, starting by building a Mach-2.2 airliner economical enough to operate with business-class fares. "To get there you have to improve fuel efficiency, but step-by-step supersonic air travel will become available for everyone".

If successful, the aircraft could take passengers from London to NY in just over three hours and from Sydney to Los Angeles in under seven hours. "Through this partnership, we hope to contribute to the future of supersonic travel with the intent of providing more time to our valued passengers while emphasizing flight safety". Boom is trying to bring supersonic travel to business-class level customers. Boom is using a General Electric engine for its demonstration aircraft. The deal includes options for 20 aircraft. "JAL's passionate, visionary team offers decades of practical knowledge and wisdom on everything from the passenger experience to technical operations". Having airline stakeholders closely involved in the development of its aircraft and service plans will work in practice is a huge boon for Boom, which is a very small company with very ambitious goals.

Greg Abbott (R) offered his condolences to Copeland's family and ordered the city's flags lowered to half-staff in his honor. It was not immediately known whether the suspect shot himself or was shot by an officer on the scene, Stapp said.


Boom founder and chief executive Blake Scholl said the strategic partnership with Japan Airlines came after a year working together behind the scenes. So far, Boom has received 76 options from carriers around the world and there are three unnamed companies picking up the remaining unlisted 46 options. The Concorde had a maximum speed just over twice the speed of sound and could seat more than 100 passengers, but rising maintenance costs and a decline in passengers following a deadly post-takeoff crash in Paris in July 2000 forced its retirement.
