Aircraft Aerion SBJ, developed at the moment by American aviation specialists, is designed exclusively for the needs of business aviation, and, the main fact this is the extremely high cost of one unit, which in turn points to the fact that the planes will be produced to order, and most likely exclusively in single copies.

His first flight of the aircraft Aerion SBJ (Supersonic Business Jet) must perform in 2019 year, and assumptions of experts, already 2021, the aircraft can start to produce when you receive the first orders.

Thanks to the use of a powerful power plant, and according to preliminary data, the aircraft will be equipped with two Pratt & Whitney JT8D-219 turbofan aircraft engines, each of which will be able to develop a thrust of 87,2 kN, the aircraft will be able to accelerate to a speed of 1909 km / h (maximum flight speed ), which in turn will allow, in turn, to cover distances up to 8,5 thousand kilometers as quickly as possible (maximum flight range at subsonic speed).

Depending on the cabin, in the aircraft can accommodate up to 8 12 people excluding crew members, that meets most requirements of modern representatives of the business community. The very same room, will be available in three basic versions, and if necessary, the customer can also request a trim of the aircraft in their own design concept.
