Boom Supersonic recently partnered with Flight Research to collaborate on producing the XB-1 supersonic plane. The XB-1 is an aircraft that was created to showcase flight technology from Supersonic, as the company works towards its goal of producing passenger jets with supersonic capabilities. Overall the partnership could drastically streamline the testing process for Boom Supersonic.
As part of the partnership, Flight Research will allow Boom Supersonic to use its hanger, which is located at the Mojave Air and Space Port. Flight Research will also provide access to a T-38 Talon aircraft, which has supersonic capabilities and will allow Boom Supersonic to run tests.
The XB-1 is currently under construction, and the flight controls systems and engines were recently completed.
