Who wants a Learjet…

If you can get this. Aerion comes with a supersonic business jet, that looks a bit like the Concorde. Now, while the Concorde was a civilian flight, the SBJ is aimed solely at the corporates and jet setting billionaires to insure the return of the invested cash. The preliminary orders the company booked in just three months is nearly $1.5 billion with an initial deposit of $250,000 for its $80 million SBJ. The SBJ flies at a maximum of Mach 1.6 to reduce the need for costly high-temperature materials. It will also fly at a maximum of 51,000 feet like other other business jets.

Sounds nice, uh? Well, you’ll have to wait until 2014 before the first SBJ takes off…
