The Future of Intercontinental Air Travel Just Changed…
The attendees at the 21st Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit got a first-in-the industry preview…
On November 15, at Denver’s Centennial Airport, the rest of the world was opened to the next dimension on air transportation. A project involving global suppliers such as General Electric, Rolls-Royce and Honeywell, the Boom Airliner is a program that will change how international airlines will structure their route systems and their product offering.
Boyd Group International is proud to be a part of this new – and very disruptive – dimension in future air travel. Our feasibility analyses of the Boom Airliner concept found a clear niche for this platform, one that is fare-competitive with existing front-cabin market sectors.
We’d note that over the past two decades, BGI has accomplished a number of studies regarding new-technology airliner platforms. We were there with Embraer in the early phases of the ERJ series, we assisted General Electric in market forecasts for a stretched CRJ-200, which evolved into the -700. Later, we worked with Embraer in the feasibility of what is today the 175/190 platform. We have accomplished feasibility analyses for a number of next-technology airliner concepts, including supersonic ones. Some of these later concepts simply did not make sense.
This concept does pass the smell test. Click Here for more on a program that will be challenge ambient thinking in regard to air transportation

The Most Incisive, Futurist IAFS Yet!
Some of the global coverage of the 21st IAFS… CCTV-America, China National Television, covering our sessions regarding the importance of China-US air traffic to airports across the USA.
Boyd Group International wants to thank all the aviation leaders who joined us for the 21st annual IAFS.
As always, the Summit was an event that didn’t deliver more of the same. Just more of the future.
We’ll let our attendees speak for us… a couple of examples:
“Congratulations on another outstanding conference! Much great information was gathered and new contacts were made in an absolutely stunning setting. As always, you pulled together an outstanding event with impeccable attention paid to every detail. “
“Many thanks once again for an outstanding conference in Squaw Valley. The venue was fantastic, the content engaging and the ability to network with so many diverse industry folk was simply terrific.”
Our sincere thanks to Marily Mora and her team at Reno-Tahoe International for their incredible work to make this year’s IAFS the most exciting in our 21 year history.
We also want to thank Andy Wirth of Squaw Valley Ski Resort and his staff in showcasing Olympic Valley and all it offers as a fabulous destination.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be covering the key forecast points made at the Summit, including the cutting-edge China-US Opportunities Symposium, as well as new breakthrough sessions on supersonic airliners, air traffic control realities, and an air access workshop that cut whole new territory. And these are just for starters.
