Honeywell prepares to connect Aerion AS2
Aerion and Honeywell began their formal collaboration in 2018, working on the preliminary design of the AS2's avionics. Joining the project in the formative stages, Honeywell's expertise is helping shape a bespoke system.
The AS2 will bring supersonic flight to business aviation.

Aerion and Honeywell Aerospace are progressing through the joint definition phase for the avionics and connectivity suite of the new AS2 supersonic business jet. “Honeywell Aerospace is the definitive leader in cutting-edge avionics technology, and we are delighted to continue our long-standing collaboration,” says Aerion's CEO, chairman and president Tom Vice. “We appreciate the considerable investment in resources that Honeywell has made in our programme, and we look forward to continued collaboration as we work with our global supply team to bring the AS2 into production.”

Upon completion of commercial and programmatic agreement, the avionics suite being developed for the AS2 will represent the next generation of avionics suites for business aircraft featuring Honeywell's flight deck, an advanced display system incorporating intuitive symbology, advanced communication and navigation systems, plus flight guidance and management systems. All aspects of the new avionics will support supersonic flight and Aerion's Boomless Cruise technology, which enables the AS2 to fly at both transonic and supersonic speeds over land with no perceived noise reaching the ground. Also included are Honeywell's advanced connectivity solutions and Honeywell Forge platform, which will enable the AS2 to deliver safety-critical communications, as well as critical aircraft data into information to revolutionise management of aircraft operations and maintenance.

“We are committed to advancing the future of flight, and our work with Aerion is paving the way for the return of supersonic travel,” adds Mike Madsen, Honeywell Aerospace president and CEO. “Our avionics and connectivity solutions will help define the next era of air travel and make it safer and more efficient than ever before.”
