Aerion says it has now signed more than 40 letters of intent for the $80 million jet. “Just two and a half years ago our market research indicated a market for 300 supersonic jets over ten years,” says vice-chairman Brian Barents. “But that survey did not even include demand from countries such as India, China and Russia. If anything, we have underestimated global demand.”
Aerion’s distributor outside of the Americas is Execujet, which has received five orders in India alone. Elsewhere in the world Aerion now has letters of intent from customers in Pakistan, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.
