The first sale of a Private Jet by Airbus to a Japanese Client has been made in March 2012. This marks a historic event in aviation as there are relatively few corporate jets in Japan considering the fact that it is such an economic powerhouse. This sale will undoubtedly widen Airbus’s presence in the Asia-Pacific market which is growing more and more widespread.

Private or Corporate jets can be found in many area of the world and it is surprising given Japanese economics power that they are so few and far-in-between there. That may change soon however, thanks to the construction of a private jet dedicated terminal in Tokyo, the Premier Gate Narita.

Aerion Supersonic Business Jet Seek New Airframer

Aerion, the Supersonic Business Jet maker is now on a lookout for a manufacturer to build its 8-12 passenger twinjet supersonic business that would be capable of Mach 1.6. At the same time, the company based in Reno also plans make revenue while also contributing to better flight efficiency of conventional sub-sonic flights.

Aerion will be employing Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) optimised design in their aircraft. As a result, their jets will look drastically different from prevalent jets seen today. Whereas today’s airplanes with predominant wing sweep design limits the amount of NLF, Aerion’s plane design will incorporate wings with much less of a sweep and much thinner.

The earliest adopter of NLF design is probably Cessna with their CJ series. Piaggio also incorporate the design in their Avanti turboprops. Honda and Dassault are also working hard to incorporate NLF into their fleet.
