Trending Supersonic Business Jet: The Aerion AS2
Imagine being able to fly roundtrip between New York and London in a single day. Aerion Supersonic is currently working with Lockheed Martin and GE Aviation to develop a true revolution in air travel with the world’s first supersonic business jet. The 12-passenger AS2 is expected to have a maximum speed of Mach 1.4 (more than 1,000 mph) over water and, where permitted, to approach Mach 1.2 without a single sonic boom reaching the ground. Thanks to the AS2’s advanced aerodynamics, the cabin will be spacious, not to mention beautifully appointed. Reducing trans-Atlantic flights by as much as three hours is looking good.
