    GREENSBORO, N.C. and DENVER, June 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Boom Supersonic, the company building the world's fastest airliner, today held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Overture Superfactory, celebrating the completion of construction. Located at the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina, the Overture Superfactory is the first supersonic airliner factory in the United States. Overture is Boom's supersonic airliner, capable of flying twice as fast as today's commercial planes on up to 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

    "Construction of the Overture Superfactory represents a major milestone toward ensuring the United States' continued leadership in aerospace manufacturing," said Blake Scholl, founder and CEO of Boom Supersonic. "Supersonic flight will transform air travel, and Overture provides a much-needed innovative alternative for airlines across the globe."

    Hundreds of millions of passengers will fly supersonic on aircraft produced at the Overture Superfactory. This first assembly line has the capacity to produce 33 Overture aircraft per year, valued at more than $6 billion. Boom plans to build an additional assembly line, scaling to produce 66 supersonic airliners annually. The Overture Superfactory campus will also include a delivery center where airlines including United Airlines, American Airlines, and Japan Airlines will receive their supersonic aircraft.

    "As the state that was first in flight, North Carolina is excited to see Boom's progress toward delivering the world's first sustainable supersonic airliner," said Governor Roy Cooper. "Our state has the skilled workforce, infrastructure and perfect location to help Boom revolutionize air travel."

    North Carolina economists estimate that the full Boom manufacturing program will grow the state's economy by at least $32.3 billion over 20 years, with the Superfactory directly adding more than 2,400 jobs.

    "The Piedmont Triad region is an economic powerhouse, helping solidify North Carolina's place as the top state for business. Boom's Overture Superfactory, which will produce a paradigm-changing airliner, showcases the new and innovative projects that are bringing jobs and investment here," said North Carolina Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger.
