The dream of flying cars is still a long way off, but the future is here and the first million-dollar future aircraft is already in the works. Many companies are already building these flying machines. Three recently went public, each with a valuation of $6 billion. The prototypes have been kept under wraps for years. Few people have even seen them or flown them, but the technology behind them is already ready for production.
One of the most ambitious projects is the Boom Overture jet, which can fly from Newark, N.J., to Tokyo in six hours. It can travel between Newark, N.J., and London in three and a half hours. The company hopes to sell the aircraft before 2025, but it needs to get cleared by regulators first. It also hopes to build bigger airplanes to fly anywhere in the world in four hours, and sell tickets for as little as $100.
One of the most impressive plans is Boom Supersonic Overture. The company’s plans are to focus on trans-oceanic routes, and it is planning to launch commercial flights by 2026. As a result of its blazing speed of Mach 2.2, the aircraft will be more environmentally friendly than current commercial aircraft. It is projected that the market will demand between 1,000 and 2,000 Overture craft by the mid-2020s. In fact, that would be $265 billion worth of potential customers for the first generation of supersonic craft.
Another company that’s ready to take flight is Boom Aero. The company’s supersonic AS2 jet is slated to reach London in six hours and connect San Francisco and Tokyo in three and a half hours. The planes are expected to be ready for purchase by 2025, although the company has to wait for approval from the regulators before that time. By 2030, Boom hopes to fly anywhere in the world, including Hawaii, in four hours. The ultimate goal is to sell the seats for under $100, and make a million dollar profit.
The boom supersonic overture is a ten-seater jet that will focus on 500 trans-oceanic routes. The company plans to sell a total of 2,000 of these aircrafts by 2025, but they still need to be approved by regulators before they can be put on the market. They will cost an estimated $265 billion by the mid-2020s.
The boom company is already developing the Boom Overture jet, which can fly from Newark, N.J., to Tokyo in six hours. The company hopes to start selling the jets by 2025, but it is important to note that it is still only the first prototype. But, if it passes all regulatory tests, it will be ready for commercial use in 2025.
