Aerion is founded on a core belief of bringing humanity closer. The company’s vision is a future where humanity can travel between any two points on our planet within three hours using new transportation networks – powered by clean energy solutions and enabling a world where distance is no longer a barrier. The starting point is sustainable supersonic flight, led by the world’s first supersonic business jet – the AS2. Designed to be inherently environmentally responsible from first flight, the AS2 is the first supersonic jet designed to be powered by 100 percent synthetic fuel and reach supersonic speeds without the need for an afterburner.
The AS2 will be the first aircraft to be assembled at Aerion’s new global headquarters in Melbourne, Florida - Aerion Park. The state-of-the-art development, powered by clean energy, will incorporate headquarters operations plus an integrated campus for research, design, build and support of the company’s new supersonic aircraft. Manufacturing is scheduled to commence in 2023.
Aerion is the leader in new supersonic technologies, pioneering improved aerodynamics for the design of efficient and sustainable supersonic aircraft. Over nearly two decades, Aerion has been testing and refining new concepts in high-speed flight. These tests have been accomplished with support from NASA, The European Transonic Wind Tunnel, Sandia National Labs and other leading aeronautical institutions.
