Aerion has released the first glimpse of its next aircraft – the AS3™, a Mach 4+ commercial airliner targeted to take to the skies before the end of the decade.

With this technology, Aerion is intent on advancing  sustainable supersonic flight and creating a world where distance is no longer a barrier.

The AS3 will build upon the AS2® supersonic business jet. With conceptualization and design work underway and built around input from potential customers, Aerion plans for the AS3™ to incorporate revolutionary advances in technology to improve efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of supersonic flight, with the capability to transport up to 50 passengers at a range of 7,000 nm.

 

Earlier this year Aerion expanded its ongoing partnership with NASA’s Langley Research Center, with the intention of accelerating the realization of commercial high-speed flight and faster point-to-point travel, specifically studying commercial flight in the Mach 3-5 range.

At Aerion, our vision is to build a future where humanity can travel between any two points on our planet within three hours. Supersonic flight is the starting point, but it is just that – the beginning. To truly revolutionize global mobility as we know it today, we must push the boundaries of what is possible” said Aerion’s Chairman, President & CEO, Tom Vice. “The AS3™ forms the next step in our long-term technology roadmap and will bring Aerion’s high Mach flight capability to a broader audience

Aerion’s pursuit of faster point-to-point travel will begin with the launch of the AS2® supersonic business jet which will commence production in 2023.
