  • As Boom’s upcoming flagship supersonic airliner, Overture is expected to become the world’s fastest airliner, designed to set a new industry standard for speed, sustainability, and safety.
  • The unit of RTX is renown for engineering advanced nacelle technology for more than 70 years — including the development of the world’s first commercial variable fan nozzle, for engines with high-bypass-ratio geared turbofans.
  • The two-pronged engineering team will explore advanced acoustics and variable exhaust and inlet technologies — crucial to lowering the boom and scream of aircraft noise for passengers and community bystanders, while also upgrading performance.
