Aerion Supersonic of Reno, Nevada is introducing a new era of practical and efficient supersonic flight. In 2017, the company joined forces with GE Aviation and Lockheed Martin to develop the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet.
The 12-passenger AS2 is expected to fly at a maximum speed of Mach 1.4 over water, and, where permitted by regulation, at speeds approaching Mach 1.2 without a sonic boom reaching the ground. Thanks to its unique supersonic natural laminar flow wing, the aircraft is expected to achieve long range (LA to Paris) and efficiency at supersonic and subsonic speeds. Once fielded, it will reduce trans-Atlantic trips by as much as three hours, enabling business leaders to fly roundtrip between New York and London in a day.
Aerion was formed in 2003 to advance more efficient supersonic technologies. Since that time, the company has developed and demonstrated advanced wing technology in conjunction with NASA and other leading aeronautical institutions. This research includes breakthrough work in supersonic natural laminar flow, the key enabling technology behind the AS2 supersonic business jet.
In November 2015, Aerion announced a fleet order from fractional aircraft fleet operator Flexjet for 20 AS2 aircraft.

Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority

Established in 1931, the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) is responsible for the regulation and safety oversight of aviation in Bermuda and all aircraft on the Bermuda Aircraft Registry.
Bermuda is a United Kingdom Overseas Territory and though it is regulated by the UK Department for Transport, the safety oversight system is separate from that of the UK. The regulatory requirements are established as the Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements (OTARs), which are in full compliance with the standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
Bermuda’s Aircraft Registry is extensive and ranks 10th in size when compared to the 191 signatory States to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. The current Registry includes a mix of both private aircraft and commercial aircraft operated under Article 83 bis Agreements.
With a wealth of experience and credibility in the global aviation industry, combined with unparalleled personal and responsive customer service, the BCAA team is uniquely positioned to meet your aircraft registry needs.


Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Bombardier Inc. boasts a heritage of innovation that dates back to the start of civil aviation, spanning some 110 years. The acquisition of Canadair in 1986 was the first of several strategic moves that would see Bombardier consolidate leading aircraft design and manufacturing experience from around the world. In the following six years, Bombardier grew in strength and stature, by acquiring in 1989 the world’s first aircraft production company -- the Northern Ireland-based Short Brothers -- followed soon thereafter by Learjet of Wichita, USA, in 1990, and de Havilland Canada in 1992.

In 2014, the former Bombardier Aerospace was reorganized into three segments in order to enhance agility and respond quickly to evolving customer needs, changing market dynamics and world events. Each unit – Business Aircraft, Commercial Aircraft and Aerostructures and Engineering Services –reports directly to the President and Chief Operating Officer of Bombardier Inc.

Bombardier Business Aircraft offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of business jets with its popular Learjet*, Challenger* and Global* aircraft families. In their respective segments, the Learjet 70* and Learjet 75* aircraft feature superior cruise speeds, high climb rates and operating ceilings, and competitive operating costs. In the medium category, the Challenger 650* and class-defining Challenger 350* offer industry-leading cabin design and amenities as well as performance and reliability attributes synonymous with the Challenger family.

The Global* long-range aircraft family – with the popular Global 5000* and Global 6000* jets in production delivering the smoothest ride in business aviation – is led by the all-new Global 7000* aircraft, the only purpose-built four-compartment cabin designed to deliver uncompromising levels of range, speed and cabin comfort. The historic first flight occurred November 4, 2016, and there are currently four aircraft engaged in a comprehensive flight test and certification program. Having celebrated a strongly successful international debut at NBAA-BACE in October 2017, the Global 7000 is scheduled to enter service in the second half of 2018.

Bombardier Business Aircraft supports its customers globally through an international network of field service personnel and a combination of wholly owned and authorized MRO facilities. It includes new Bombardier service centers in Biggin Hill, U.K. – operational in early 2017 and since expanded – and also in Tianjin, China, which opened its doors in April 2017. This growing network also includes 24/7 customer response centers, mobile parts delivery services, spare parts depots, and pilot and maintenance training facilities.
