You would likely end up looking like hamburger. Since the early 80's, urologists have been using lithotripsy to smash gallstones and kidney stones into fine sand so they can pass out of the body in urine. The procedure involves high intensity acoustic pulses being focussed on the stones. They have the consistency of hard chalk and when the treatment is done they are reduced to powder. The procedure requires the patient to be under anaesthesia because the shock waves are so powerful they cause cavitation in tissue and bone. And thats at a power that won't make you fly!

Not really what I am talking about, which is conventional travel, rockets provide lift. It goes in one direction very fast. It would be expensive to modify the design to allow conventional travel, which is why we have rockets, and we have planes. A plane requires lift, where a rocket uses thrust. The principal is quite different as I understand it. Something "hybrid" that manipulates the atmosphere, and sound waves do just that, may have the potential to reach further. I do not know if it would work, but by gum it is an interesting proposal. Yes, I know that NASA has several desi...

Back to OP, though, have you considered the fact that most UAPs that accelerate at high speed almost never cause sonic booms. Just a coincidence? I've always wondered about this detail.
