Boom Technology is an extremely ambitious company, based in the state of Colorado, that is all set to develop a 40-passenger supersonic airliner that will fly faster than the Concorde and will not be exorbitantly expensive. It sounds and is audacious, but Boom Technology is confident of developing a supersonic passenger airliner that can fly at speeds of Mach 2.2 (around 2,700 km/h).

Headquartered at Centennial Airport, Boom Technology expects to build its supersonic airliner in only a few years. It will be able to carry 40 passengers in two single-seat rows of first-class seats at a cruising altitude of 60,000 feet.

Boom Technology's supersonic airliner is still in the artist concept and mock-up stage, but a development prototype is set to be ready to take on a first flight in late 2017. If Boom Technology succeeds in developing this airliner, it could completely revolutionize commercial travel, particularly in the premium and business areas.
