Aerion AS2 - giperzvukrovoy plane business class developed by the American Aircraft Corporation Aerion Corporation.

Work on designing a supersonic airliner administrative type began in 2009 year, while the first information about it was announced only 2014 year when, as noted by themselves aeronautical engineer, was created a true concept of the future of the aircraft and determined its basic flight performance.

Development of hypersonic business jet Aerion AS2 was conducted on the basis of another model - Aerion SBJ, which is slated to launch in production from year 2021. At the same time, the appearance of the aircraft if it has remained virtually unchanged, the specifications were partly increased, partly reduced.

Depending on the configuration of the aircraft on board Aerion AS2 can accommodate 5 to 9 passengers and the aircraft itself is focused primarily on the sector of business air travel because of its actual price is likely to be determined by the value of the 125 million dollars to 170 million that the more expensive the majority of modern passenger jets.




As the power plant, on the model of Aerion AS2 be used three turbofan aircraft engine, each of which is capable of thrust 72,6 kN, however, the management of aircraft company noted that, in the end, the choice of the power plant will be determined by the most efficient flight performance in therefore it is possible that the actual thrust is increased by 10-25%.

Estimated hypersonic speed business jet Aerion AS2 be about 1837 km \ h (the maximum speed of flight), but with a more powerful propulsion systems, it may rise to the level of 1900 - 2100 km \ h.

Estimated distance route Aerion AS2 be about 9800 kilometers, which ultimately will depend on the mode of operation of the power plant, however, aircraft manufacturers have noted that the maximum distance route will be at least 8700 kilometers that will allow for direct air travel between most of the largest cities in the world.

Compared with the model Aerion SBJ, aircraft Aerion AS2 fuselage is long - about 52 meters, while the wingspan is about 18,6 meters, at the height of the aircraft in 6,7 meters.
