Aciturri and Boom Supersonic sign supplier agreement for Overture empennage
Tuesday, 20 June 2023

Boom Supersonic, the company building the world's fastest airliner, optimized for speed, safety, and sustainability, announced today an agreement with Aciturri to become a key supplier on the Overture program at the Paris Air Show.

Overture's empennage features a differentiated horizontal stabilizer that allows for greater control at subsonic speeds–particularly takeoff and landing. Under the agreement, Boom selected Aciturri to design and develop the entire empennage, including Vertical Tail Plane (VTP), Horizontal Tail Plane (HTP), Rudder & Elevators.

“Overture is a generation-defining project,” said Álvaro Fernández Baragaño, CEO of Aciturri. “We are thrilled to be given the unique opportunity to bring our engineering capabilities and decades of aerostructures and aeroengine components expertise to the future of sustainable supersonic flight with Boom.”

Blake Scholl, founder and CEO of Boom Supersonic, said: “We are incredibly proud of the substantive progress with Overture and Symphony from our global team of partners and suppliers who continue to operate at an accelerated pace toward the future of sustainable supersonic flight”

As a TIER1 supplier to major OEM's, Aciturri and Alestis have a wide experience developing and manufacturing empennages based on different technologies in the leading aerospace industry programs, such as A350 VTP, A320 HTP, A380 Rudder & Elevators, B737 Rudder or Falcon 7X Elevators.

Boom also signed structural supplier agreements for Overture's wings, and the fuselage and wing box.
