Aerion Corporation is leading a supersonic renaissance.
Since 2002, Aerion Corporation has pioneered new technologies to make supersonic flight practical and efficient. Today, Aerion is working with GE Aviation to define a 21st century supersonic engine. New aerodynamics and new engines come together in the Mach 1.5 AS2 business jet, creating a revolution in travel.
More about Aerion
Setting the Pace
Aerion introduces a near doubling of speed capability—to Mach 1.5, about 1,000 mph.
Overland, the AS2 cruises efficiently at Mach 0.95, faster than any jet today, and without producing a sonic boom.
BOOMLESS CRUISE(sm) flight is feasible at speeds approaching Mach 1.2, depending on atmospheric conditions, principally temperature and wind. Post certification, Aerion will work with certifying authorities to approve this cruise capability.
AT REMARKABLE SPEEDS
Advanced aerodynamics allow Aerion to create a spacious cabin without undue impact on airframe drag and aircraft performance. Cabin dimensions are similar to some of today’s most popular long-range cabins. Height is 6’2” and width is 7’6”. Length is 30 feet with two seating areas, a large galley, a full-width aft lavatory, and walk in baggage area. Furnishings and appointments will be dictated by the customer and will be unsurpassed in quality, craftsmanship, and beauty.
