01:00
Aerion AS2 Specs, Interior, Cockpit, and Price – Aerion AS2 is a Supersonic Business Jet (SBJ) which is being designed by Aerion Corporation together with Boeing, United States. This supersonic business jet will have the ability to fly up to 70 percent faster than today's business jets. Aerion AS2 will save about three hours of transatlantic flights while meeting environmental performance requirements.

Aerion AS2 was announced in May 2014 during the 2014 European Business Aviation Convention (EBACE), held in Geneva, Switzerland. AS2 is a redesigned version of Aerion SBJ, which was announced by Aerion in 2004. The first AS2 flight was scheduled for 2023, and the aircraft is expected to receive certification in 2023.

Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet

Aerion AS2 Specs

Aerion AS2 is designed to achieve maximum speed. It combines an oval shaped body with transverse and short wings. Wings, fuselage, empennage, and nacelle engines will be made of carbon fiber material, while the front end of the wing will be built using titanium alloy to protect from erosion.

Aerion AS2 will have a length of 49m, a width of 21m and a height of 8m. Long and narrow planes reduce the wave resistance, which is further reduced by narrowing the front of the aircraft and the center of the fuselage, where the wings, engine and fuselage meet.

The Aerion AS2 wing will have an area of ​​125m². The Aerion AS2 wing, which was not swept, resembled a modern fighter, especially designed to reduce obstacles above Mach 1 and display a relatively smaller aspect ratio. The supersonic natural laminar flow design (SNLF) reduces the total airframe resistance by 20%.

The wings are thin and smooth with relatively sharp edges and the upper and upper surfaces are slightly curved. They combine high-lift, low sweep, and strong flaps that allow approach and landing speeds to be similar to large subsonic jets.

Aerion AS2 engine

Aerion AS2 Engine

Aerion AS2 will be equipped with three engines of 15,000lb thrust class, supporting a low bypass configuration. The company launched the GE Affinity engine design for AS2 in 2018. Aerion is talking to all leading engine manufacturers to determine the optimal core engine that complies with AS2 requirements.

Compared to dual-engine business jets, tri-engine jets are more efficient because they require shorter runways for take-off. Failure of one machine can still allow two thirds of the power to be available and therefore lower power reserves will be needed. For the same reason, the engine can be sized more efficiently and optimized in terms of power output. Each tri-jet engine produces lower thrust compared to twin jet configurations.

The Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet is designed to fly at speeds up to Mach 1.4 or around 1,000 miles per hour. It will sail at speeds up to Mach 0.99 in geographical zones where supersonic flights are banned, and at speeds of Mach 1.1 to 1.2 above populated areas, without creating sonic explosions on land.

Its speed can be increased to Mach 1.6 on water and can fly on high, low supersonic and high speed supersonic cruises on one flight.

The maximum distance of the aircraft is 9,260 km. It takes a landing distance of less than 4,000 feet and a runway length of 7,500 feet to take off when fully charged. The basic working weight of AS2 is 22,588 kg, with a maximum takeoff weight of 52,163 kg.

The runway length can be 6,000 feet or shorter when carrying less fuel load, while the aircraft will not need additional land equipment and can achieve the same fuel efficiency in both subsonic and supersonic regimes.
