Boom and Rolls-Royce Explore Propulsion Systems for Overture

Another pair of aerospace giants have announced about the collaboration on the development of a supersonic jet. This time these are Boom Supersonic and Rolls-Royce which are exploring propulsion system options for the supersonic passenger aircraft, Overture.

The teams will investigate whether an existing engine architecture can be adapted for supersonic flight, while Boom’s internal team continues to develop the airframe configuration.

“We look forward to building on the progress and rapport that we’ve already built with our collaboration as we work to refine Overture’s design and bring sustainable supersonic transport to passenger travel,” said Blake Scholl, Boom founder and CEO.
