to Revive Supersonic Aviation


For the past 50 years, our long-haul flight times have remained the same. We at Exosonic do not believe these flight times will remain the same much longer.


Therefore, we're inventing a faster future.

We are developing a quiet, Mach 1.8 70-seater supersonic passenger aircraft that can fly supersonically overland and overwater with a muted sonic boom.


We market this aircraft to airlines so they can cut long-haul flight times in half at prices comparable to today’s business class tickets for their time-sensitive business travelers.


Only with the capability to fly anywhere around the world do we believe supersonic transport will become a mainstay of commercial aviation.
