Supersonic Airliner Eyes Production in 2024

Boom Supersonic Breaks Ground on Manufacturing Facility

Boom Supersonic has begun construction of the Overture Superfactory in Greensboro, North Carolina, with production of their aircraft expected to begin sometime in 2024.

The Superfactory will be a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located on a 62-acre campus near Piedmont Triad International Airport. The site will house the final assembly line, test facility, and customer delivery center for Boom's flagship supersonic airliner, the Overture.
Over the next decade, the company expects to hire more than 2,400 employees at the location, with recruiting already underway. Overall, the plant should boost the state's economy by somewhere north of $32 billion over the next twenty years.

"Today's groundbreaking for the Overture Superfactory represents a significant step forward in building sustainable and accessible supersonic travel for the world," said Kathy Savitt, President of Boom Supersonic. "This milestone is a shared one and we are deeply appreciative of the input, leadership, and support of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority, local community, and the state of North Carolina."

"Building on our legacy of 'First in Flight,' North Carolina is ready to partner with Boom Supersonic in leading the way to a fast and clean aviation future," North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said. "Our economy is taking flight with a talented workforce and strong infrastructure ready for these new, good-paying jobs in innovation and aerospace."

"It's an exciting time to live in North Carolina and see the influx of innovative companies establish roots in our state. The high-paying and skilled jobs that Boom Supersonic will create will make a significant economic impact in the Triad and across the entire state," said North Carolina Senate Leader Phil Berger.

"Boom Supersonic continues to deliver on its commitments and is growing its presence in North Carolina, building excitement in the community," said Paul Mengert, Chair of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority. "On behalf of the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority and our board members, we congratulate Boom on this milestone for Overture."
