Boom Supersonic is on track to complete its Overture Superfactory at Piedmont Triad International Airport by next summer.
Using real-time cameras, Boom officials headquartered in Denver, Colorado, have been closely monitoring construction progress of the company's final assembly plant at PTI in Greensboro. Some of those images were shared this week with customers, suppliers, and industry experts at the Paris Air Show. The company revealed a one-third scale 3D printed model of the Overture’s Symphony engine for the first time. And Boom made several milestone announcements, including the newly acquired design and manufacturing partners responsible for all of Overture’s major structures.
Boom President Kathy Savitt says the wings will be supplied by Spain-based Aernnova; fuselage sections by Italian company Leonardo; with tail design and development by Spain-based Aciturri.
"Really what we’re doing — whether it’s with the tail which we call the empennage, to the wing — we’re assembling those, and putting those pieces together like a world-class jigsaw puzzle or a great recipe, in Overture in North Carolina," says Savitt.
According to Savitt, several steel bays for the Superfactory — which is being built in sections — have already been installed at the PTI site. She says Boom is now on track to complete construction there sometime in early June of 2024.
