Aerion Shifts Development Focus to Supersonic RC Model Aircraft

Business jet start-up Aerion Supersonic has shut down the development of its “silent” supersonic aircraft, the industry reported on Friday. What was not divulged was that the company will not disband operations completely, instead shifting development focus to supersonic remote controlled model aircraft.

The new operation will be headed by Bobby Bass, alter-ego of founder Robert Bass. There was no information provided on the business prospects for this new venture, although an off-air microphone picked up comments on the lines of “gotta do something with all those drawings and customers’ deposits.”
