Aerion is launching a supersonic renaissance and a sustainable supersonic future, one
that will connect people across the planet more quickly with ever more capable supersonic aircraft. The company has teamed with GE Aviation for engines and with Lockheed Martin for engineering and production. The three companies are developing the Mach 1.4 AS2 supersonic business jet. This 12-passenger jet will save travelers as much as three hours across the Atlantic and five hours across the Pacific. It is as much as 60 percent faster than today’s civil jets. Aerion plans to fly the AS2 in 2023 and achieve certification in 2025.
Reno, Nevada-based Aerion Supersonic was formed in 2003. Since that time, the company has developed and demonstrated advanced wing technology in conjunction with NASA and other leading aeronautical institutions. This research includes breakthrough work in supersonic natural laminar flow, the key enabling technology behind the AS2 supersonic business jet.
