Aerion to hold recruitment event for supersonic program


Aerion is recruiting for highly experienced program directors and subsystem engineers to join it in developing the AS2 supersonic business jet. The company is holding a recruitment event for those at director and lead engineer level in Los Angeles, California, on September 21, 2018.

“We are looking for creative, brilliant, passionate and collaborative pioneers who want to join with us to revolutionize global mobility through high-speed flight,” said Tom Vice, president and CEO at Aerion.

Vice noted that the Aerion team is growing rapidly as the company heads into the detailed design, systems test, production and first flight stages with its AS2 supersonic business jet. The aircraft is being developed in collaboration with engine specialist GE and Lockheed Martin, a leader in military supersonic flight.

Aerion plans to make the first flight of its AS2 in 2023 and cross the Atlantic in October 2023, the 20-year anniversary of Concorde’s last flight.

“The AS2 is the first in a series of increasingly capable and efficient supersonic aircraft, both business jets and airliners, that will revolutionize travel, create closer personal connections around the world and drive global commerce,” said Vice. “I cannot think of a greater mission, or more stimulating environment in which to work, than the aerospace industry. We invite like-minded engineers to join with us in this great enterprise.”
