Ultra-Luxury

The future of luxury – reimagining the business jet

Sustainable

Designed to be the most environmentally responsible aircraft in history, carbon neutral from flight one

Wind Tunnel Validation

  • Aerion AS2 completes wind tunnel testing – amassing the equivalent of 78,000 nautical miles flown | Read Press Release
  • Extensive low and high-speed testing program allows Aerion engineers to assess more than 200,000 in-flight data points
  • Combination of advanced digital modelling and physical model-based wind tunnel testing allow Aerion to fast-track development program ahead of 2023 production start

The Quietest And Most Fuel-Efficient Supersonic Engine In History

null

The First Aircraft In History To Fly Supersonic Without A Boom Reaching The Ground

  • AS2 will operate at a top speed of Mach 1.4 (1000mph)
  • Where regulations allow supersonic flight without a sonic boom reaching the ground, the AS2 will operate in the Boomless Cruise™ autopilot mode between Mach 1.0-1.2.
  • Boomless Cruise™ takes advantage of a well-known atmospheric phenomenology called Mach Cut Off where the sonic boom refracts off denser, warmer layers of air.
  • Aerion is collaborating with Spire Global who offer incredibly accurate weather tracking and predicting solutions through its proprietary constellation of satellites.
  • Spire Global will provide high fidelity weather models that will be coupled into the Aerion’s Boomless Cruise™ technology to compute an optimized flight plan where the AS2 can be flown at supersonic speeds.
  • Aerion and Honeywell are collaborating on a new revolutionary avionics and connectivity suite for the AS2 incorporating Honeywell’s next-generation, state-of-the-art flight deck and Forge platform. All aspects of the new avionics suite will support supersonic flight and Boomless Cruise™ operation.
