The Dawn of the supersonic business jet 2009.10.04

In the near future, it will be possible to take off from Paris at 8 a.m. for a breakfast meeting in Manhattan. One will be able to fly from the East Coast of North America to Asia in just nine and a half hours. Aerion's straight-wing, natural laminar flow design, coupled with proven engines from Pratt & Whitney, enable sustained and efficient supersonic cruise up to 1.6 Mach.

 
 
In the near future, it will be possible to take off from Paris at 8 a.m. for a breakfast meeting in Manhattan.
One will be able to fly from the East Coast of North America to Asia in just nine and a half hours.

It will be possible to traverse the United States at .98 Mach with operating costs equivalent to today's large business jets, while still being able to access all the airports where most business jets operate now and meeting applicable noise and emissions regulations.

A new approach to supersonic design makes it possible. It is like nothing that has come before, but may well herald the shape of business travel for decades into the future.

It is the Aerion Supersonic Business Jet.

Welcome aboard!



Supersonic NLF Concept


Aerion’s straight-wing, natural laminar flow design, coupled with proven engines from Pratt & Whitney, enable sustained and efficient supersonic cruise up to 1.6 Mach.
Aerion’s natural laminar flow wing reduces total airframe drag by up to 20 percent versus previous delta wing technology.

 
 
That reduction creates a virtuous circle, allowing the Aerion jet to cruise on less power, requiring less fuel and therefore lower overall weight.

The NLF wing enables fuel efficient subsonic cruise speeds between .95 and .99 Mach, and allows for boomless cruise up to Mach 1.1.

A straight-wing, natural laminar flow design provides benefits at the low and slow end of the speed envelope, as well.
Approach and landing speeds will mirror those of today’s larger business jets, allowing routine access to runways of no more than 6,000 feet.

Specifications


The term "Visionary" is overexposed given the rapid evolution of technology. But it is fairly applied to Aerion's supersonic development program.


 
 
The Delta wing was the shape that defined performance in the 20th century.
The Aerion wing is the shape of the emerging supersonic market in the 21st century.
We invite you to explore this exciting new world with us.

Performance


What might a flight in the Aerion supersonic business jet be like?
Let’s consider a trip from Chicago to London.
Eight passengers board for a 12 noon departure.

Minutes later the plane is lined up on Midway’s 6,500-foot runway 4R. Twin Pratt & Whitney JT8D-219 engines provide a prodigious kick in the pants and the nose wheel lifts off at 147 knots.
You are up and away.

 
 
Fifteen minutes later, somewhere over Lake Huron and about 150 miles down range, you level at 45,000 feet.
Speed builds quickly to .98 Mach, which is maintained until crossing into Labrador, Canada.
And here comes the fun part.
The throttles go forward and you are suddenly through Mach 1 and accelerating to Mach 1.5 over the next 167 nautical miles.
Passengers can marvel at the bulkhead flight data display as the speed builds, or gather around a conference table for a meeting.
Or perhaps trade e-mails with the home office.

Once at cruise speed, the pilots climb to the final altitude of Flight Level 510 for a quick Atlantic crossing (about two hours).
A working lunch is served.

Approaching Ireland, the pilots throttle back to just shy of Mach 1 and prepare for the approach into Farnborough.
In the back, passengers finish up calls stateside, where the work day is just concluding.
Landing time is about 10:45 p.m. local (five hours and 42 minutes after takeoff).
Still time for a night cap in the hotel lounge and a good night’s rest before a busy day.
The worst effects of jet lag have been avoided by not flying through the night and a productive day has been preserved.

Cabin Comfort


It may say Mach 1.6 on the cabin information display, but inside we've created an environment where life slows down a bit.
LCD "thin-film" lighting bathes the cabin in soothing colors.
Seats cocoon passengers in their own personalized comfort zones, with armrest controls for entertainment and communications options.

 
 
Recliners can even be heated or cooled to individual preference.
Cabin cross section (6.2 feet in height, 6.5 feet in width) is comparable to today's super-midsize jets, with a flat floor throughout.
Cabin length of 30 feet allows for up to three separate seating areas, plus room for a full galley and comfortable lavatory.

 
 
Configurations for eight to 12 passengers are possible. At supersonic speeds, you won't spend a lot of time here. But they will be among your most enjoyable hours.

Order Book at $4 billion as Aerion nears decision on manufacturing partner for its supersonic jet design


Paris Air Show (June 15, 2009) Aerion Corporation is nearing a decision on an aerospace manufacturing partner to lead the development and production of its pioneering supersonic business jet design.

The next step is to carry out a pre-launch phase jointly with the OEM to confirm the Aerion SSBJ performance, costs and market, prior to formal launch in the third quarter of 2010.

Thereafter a five-year program is planned so that the Aerion SSBJ could be flying in 2013 and certified by late 2015.

“This will represent the first joint civil supersonic development program in 47 years, and the last was a result of a treaty between two nations, so I think it is fair to say a new agreement will be historic—and one driven entirely by market dynamics,” said Aerion Vice Chairman Brian Barents.


 
 
Aerion
has stated previously that a successful proof-of-concept phase would be followed by a five-year development program culminating in certification and entry into service.
In all likelihood, that would put the certification date for the Aerion aircraft in 2015.

Barents noted two positive economic signs for the program: the Aerion order book has held steady at approximately $4 billion (with a unit cost of $80 million); and OEMs have remained committed to pressing ahead with discussions at a time of economic uncertainty.

“Both customers and OEMs are looking beyond the current economic turmoil,” said Barents.
“OEMs understand that they need to think five to ten years ahead and have new products in the pipeline. The development timeline for the Aerion supersonic business jet fits well with this sort of planning horizon.”


 
 

Aerion Corporation


Aerion Corporation of Reno, Nevada is an advanced engineering group formed in 2002 to reintroduce commercial supersonic flight.
Aerion continues research begun more than 20 years ago, with the current focus on the design of a practical and efficient supersonic business jet employing patented natural laminar flow technology.
