Should the Boom Supersonic jet take flight later this decade there's a very strong chance it will be powered by Rolls-Royce engines. The companies announced "an engagement agreement to explore the pairing of a Rolls-Royce propulsion system with Boom's flagship supersonic passenger aircraft, Overture."
While this is not a formal engine model selection it does advance the project and provides further indications as to how the program might take flight.
We've had a series of valuable collaborations and co-locations with Rolls-Royce over the past years to lay the groundwork for this next phase of development. 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.
