Aerion AS2: Supersonic Business Jet


The AS2 is different than any airplane that has come before, principally in terms of aerodynamics and sheer performance. Its outline is the new shape of practical and efficient supersonic flight. A supersonic natural laminar flow wing and other drag-reducing features set it apart.

Time is the most precious and fleeting commodity. Supersonic speed gives you more of it. More time where you want and need to be. While requiring less time to get there.

Top Speed (Mmo) of the AS2 is Mach 1.5. Rapid transatlantic dashes and other long range routes can be accomplished at this speed, which is 67 percent faster than the top cruise speeds of current or anticipated long-range subsonic jets.

Long-range Cruise is Mach 1.4. Aerion supersonic routes are calculated at this speed. At Mach 1.4, travelers save three hours across the Atlantic and six hours or more across long Pacific routes.


Supersonic Aerodynamics dictate a unique non-constant cross section cabin, which is widest in the aft cabin and tapers forward. In the aft half of the cabin, width and height are equivalent to some of today’s best-selling long-range jets. Throughout the cabin, Aerion designers are able to provide the individual space and comfort travelers expect in a top-of-the-line business jet.

Individual seats are equivalent in size to those in today’s large, long-range jets, as is seat pitch—the distance between opposite seats—providing room to stretch out and relax.

It was often said of the Concorde how utterly normal it felt to be flying at supersonic speeds. The same will be true of the AS2. The AS2, however, will provide unrivaled comfort. Its furnishings and appointments will be dictated by the customer and will be unsurpassed in their quality, craftsmanship, excellence and beauty.
