Boom Supersonic ‘Tops Out’ Overture Final Assembly Building
Construction of the Greensboro, North Carolina, production site where Boom Supersonic plans to assemble the Mach 1.7 Overture airliner remains on schedule for completion in 2024 following the raising of the final beam into place to finish the frame of the main building.
The "topping out" ceremony at the 62-acre Boom site at Greensboro's Piedmont Triad International Airport comes nine months after the start of construction on what is intended to be the final assembly line building.
Boom has sized the facility to produce up to 33 Overture aircraft per year. There is space to add a second line which would boost capacity up to 66 Overtures per year. The Overture facility, which Boom announced in 2022, is roughly 150,000 ft.2 with an additional 24,000 ft.2 of office space.
The Denver-based company expects to begin installing tooling in 2024. Assembly of the first aircraft would start later that year and roll out is targeted for 2026. Certification and entry-into-service is planned for the end of the decade.
