Boom Supersonic, the company building the world’s fastest airliner, has selected the Honeywell Anthem integrated flight deck for its Overture aircraft. As part of the agreement between the two companies, Honeywell’s next-generation flight deck and its modular avionics platform will be incorporated into Overture.
The Honeywell Anthem flight deck will be tailored for Overture’s specific mission requirements, helping to enable exceptional situational awareness and enhanced safety. The advanced avionics interface provides continuity to Overture pilots from initial simulator-based flight training through to actual flights. Honeywell successfully completed the first flight of its Anthem integrated flight deck using its Pilatus PC-12 test aircraft in May 2023, paving the way for Federal Aviation Administration certification.
“Honeywell has an extensive history of aerospace innovation and shares our vision of a faster future through sustainable supersonic flight,” said Blake Scholl, founder and CEO of Boom Supersonic. “We’re proud to work with Honeywell to realize one of the most advanced flight decks in the sky, with state-of-the-art technologies that reduce pilot workload and increase safety.”

As a pioneer in integrated modular avionics, Honeywell has successfully matured multiple generations of flight deck technology. Honeywell’s unmatched expertise in the development and certification of large and complex avionics systems provides a foundation for the development and certification of a new generation of integrated avionics onboard Overture.
“For decades, Honeywell has supported aircraft programs that build the future for aviation,” said Vipul Gupta, president, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace. “We are looking forward to partnering with Boom to usher in a new generation of supersonic travel.”
Since the Paris Air Show in June 2023, Boom has significantly expanded its supplier network, adding several tier-one global aerospace leaders to support the development of Overture.
