Aerion said today that it plans to fly a “more representative” wing test article for its supersonic business jet this summer. Following supersonic tests in 2010 aboard a NASA F-15B, the company has refined the wing design and plans to use the same aircraft to conduct another round of tests in June or July. Fabrication of the 40-inch vertical span by 80-inch chord test article is now under way and will be complete by the end of next month, it said.
