Exosonic, Inc. is a company in California that is building a 60-seater supersonic passenger aircraft that can fly supersonically overland and overwater with a muted sonic boom. Founded in 2019 in San Jose, California, United States by Norris Tie and Tim MacDonald, the company sells the aircraft to airlines and claims to cut long-haul flight times in half.

Exosonic plans to make a prototype in between 2025-2027, and then take the certification flight tests of U.S. regulator Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in between 2027-2030. Exosonic claims that it will mute the sonic boom, and in doing so, potentially add three times more overland air routes for operating supersonic flights, in addition to around 339 overwater air routes.
