In The Works: Aerion Supersonic Business Jet

 - May 1, 2008, 1:25 PM

Although it has yet to find an aircraft manufacturer willing to help design and build the world’s first supersonic business jet, Aerion has built an order backlog of more than $3 billion. The backlog reflects letters of intent backed by $250,000 refundable deposits for 38 of the $80 million supersonic business jets. Aero Toy Store, the Aerion distributor for the Americas and Caribbean, has logged 12 of those letters of intent. “Interest from our customers in this new generation private jet already has been extremely strong,” said Aero Toy Store CEO Morris Shirazi, “and we have only just begun to introduce this revolutionary aircraft to a fragment of the market.”
