Aerion and Lockheed Martin announced in December 2017 a Memorandum of Understanding to develop the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet.

Over the next 12 months, the companies will work together to develop a framework on all phases of the development programme including engineering, certification and production.

Aerion Chairman Robert M. Bass said: “This relationship is absolutely key to creating a supersonic renaissance. When it comes to supersonic know-how, Lockheed Martin’s capabilities are well known, and, in fact, legendary. We share with Lockheed Martin a commitment to the long-term development of efficient civil supersonic aircraft.”

Orlando Carvalho, Executive Vice President, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, added: “We are excited to work with Aerion on their development of the next-generation, efficient supersonic jet that will potentially serve as a platform for pioneering future supersonic aircraft.
