NBAA Podcast Exclusive: NASA Leaders Preparing for Supersonic Flight

June 6, 2022

With its first flight targeted for later this year, NASA’s X-59 supersonic aircraft – part of the Low Boom Flight Demonstrator (LBFD) project under the agency’s Quesst mission – will soon demonstrate a host of technologies aimed at reducing the perceived sound level on the ground from an aircraft flying faster than the speed of sound. “We really hope to show that there is a [sound] level that is acceptable to the general public for supersonic flight over land,” says NASA’s Project Manager Cathy Bahm. “I really do think that’s a big step to opening up the supersonic market.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Cathy Bahm, LBFD deputy project manager, NASA
  • Lori Ozoroski, project manager, NASA Commercial Supersonic Technology Project
