Boom: The return of supersonic flight

Blake Scholl , Aviation Technologist

For all of human history, we’ve wanted to fly – and to fly fast. Blake Scholl, founder and CEO of supersonic airplane startup Boom, wants to make that happen (again). His new supersonic jet could be the biggest disruption to air travel since the Jet Age. But progress always has a price. And Boom could have a big one.


“We have to be bold. We can’t stop because something might go wrong. If we do, the risk-free life gets very boring – because we literally don’t leave home.”
