Boom Supersonic, a startup hoping to bring faster-than-sound speed back to commercial air travel, selected North Carolina for the site of its jet-manufacturing facility.

The company said Wednesday that it will build a factory for its Overture aircraft at the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro. Boom will receive more than $200 million in incentives through the state’s job development investment grant program, including money for new jobs and funds to support construction.
