Airborne 10.09.20: Supersonic XB-1, ACJ TwoTwenty, Starliner Crew Shakeup

Also: Honeywell Forecast, NBAA Airmanship Award, Fortress UAV, True Blue Power for PC-12

They have  finally taken the wraps off its supersonic demonstrator, XB-1, reportedly the first independently developed supersonic jet.

To design and build XB-1, Boom recruited a team of experts from around the industry, forged relationships with key suppliers, and built a strong safety culture. XB-1 is slated to fly for the first time in 2021 and will undergo a 100% carbon-neutral flight test program. Boom’s innovations include developing one of the highest-efficiency civil supersonic engine intakes ever tested, demonstrating Boom’s ability to deliver a breakthrough in propulsive efficiency for the full-scale Overture. If a ‘normal-size’ bizjet just won’t do it for you, check out what Airbus is doing. Airbus Corporate Jets has launched the ACJ TwoTwenty business jet. While occupying the same parking space and being able to take off from the same airports as competing business jets, the ACJ TwoTwenty reportedly offers three times more cabin space, yet with a third less operating costs. Veteran NASA astronaut Barry “Butch” Wilmore will join astronauts Mike Fincke and Nicole Mann for NASA’s Boeing Crew Flight Test, the inaugural crewed flight of the CST-100 Starliner launching to the International Space Station in 2021. Boeing astronaut Chris Ferguson tweeted, “I’m taking on a new mission, one that keeps my feet planted here firmly on Earth and prioritizes my most important crew – my family,” Wilmore will take the place of Boeing astronaut Ferguson on the flight test as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
