Gulfstream Aerospace president Bryan Moss has dismissed the company’s long-discussed “Quiet Supersonic Jet” (QSJ).

Aerion, a Reno, Nev. start-up that says it plans to have a supersonic business jet (SSBJ) in service before the end of 2010, selected Infusion Design of Kansas City, Mo., to develop eight- to 12-passenger interior concepts for the aircraft’s 30-foot long passenger cabin. Infusion Design has developed executive interior concepts for a variety of business jets since 1997.

Supersonic Aerospace International (SAI) of Las Vegas said it continues to work with Lockheed Martin on the Quiet Small Supersonic Transport (QSST), the circa-$80 million, 4,000-nm, 12-passenger, Mach 1.8, no-boom supersonic business jet (SSBJ) it announced at the NBAA Convention last year.

Gulfstream Aerospace president Bryan Moss dismissed the company’s long-discussed “Quiet Supersonic Jet” (QSJ) during last month’s EBACE, prompting the aircraft’s removal from AIN’s In the Works chart. Moss pre-empted inquiring minds at a press conference by asking and answering the question himself: “Will Gulfstream build a supersonic business jet?
