On board the AS2

Liebherr-Aerospace has been selected by Aerion to develop and supply the integrated air management system for the new AS2 supersonic business jet. One of the system’s key components will be an electrical air conditioning pack, which contributes to a higher efficiency and greener aircraft operation.

U.S. supersonic aircraft company Aerion Supersonic has commissioned Liebherr for the development of the integrated air management system for the AS2 supersonic business jet.

Following initial technical discussions, Liebherr-Aerospace and Aerion converged on a next generation electrical pack with an integrated air management system.

The electrical air-conditioning pack, under development for several years at Liebherr-Aerospace, is a major step towards greener aircraft operation. In lieu of the traditional methods of utilizing bleed air from the aircraft’s engines, the innovative design selected by Aerion draws ambient air from an inlet located on the leading edge of the wing strake, enabling electrically powered compression. Fuel consumption due to the air-conditioning packs will thus be considerably reduced compared to current bleed air systems.
