Boom gets $10m boost from Japan to get superjet off the ground

Boom Supersonic's airliner concept travels at 1,451 miles per hour and carries 55 passengers.
Japan Airlines (JAL) has invested millions in a plan to reintroduce supersonic passenger flights, more than a decade after Concorde was pulled from service.
Denver-based Boom is developing a 55-seat passenger plane, created to fly at Mach 2.2, over twice the speed of sound, and slightly faster than the only previous supersonic airliner to enter widespread commercial service, Concorde. That's about half as many as the now-retired Concorde. It is also a rare example of a major airline investing significant cash in a start-up manufacturer.
"We're quite well-funded", Boom chief executive Blake Scholl tells FlightGlobal. "JAL doesn't put $10 million around without thinking really hard about it".
Boom and Japan Airlines are considering transoceanic routes, but don't expect a cross-country trip to take less time.
"Think about for a moment the families that are separated because of the long flights".
By contrast Concorde, which was in service from 1976 to 2003 was only ever ordered by two airlines: British Airways and Air France.
One US startup named Boom Technology is been trying to build a supersonic passenger jet. That plane which passed a preliminary design review in May, is scheduled to fly next year. Its retirement was also hastened by a crash in 2000 that killed 113 people. "The two companies will cooperate closely to realize faster and more convenient air travel", the companies' announcement said.
The project still faces extremely high hurdles. The prototype "Baby Boom" is being built now to be ready for flight in 2018. Boom's business plan assumes supersonic operations only over water or unpopulated areas, so the company is not relying on relief from U.S. and European bans on generating a sonic boom over land.
"Richard got a special deal in exchange for being first", Scholl said, referring to Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson. The plane used to fly with the pace of twice the speed of sound. The full-scale airliner will require three much larger engines.
Thanks to the terms of their strategic partnership, JAL will have a say as well as being "directly involved" in how several important parts of the program end up shaping up. Boom Supersonic is based out of Denver, CO and is trying to make their big splash in the industry by 2020.
