Supersonic aircraft company, Aerion, has selected F/LIST, the internationally renowned manufacturer of high-end interiors for business and private jets, yachts, and luxury residences, to deliver its exclusive products to the AS2 supersonic business jet.
F/LIST will collaborate with Aerion to develop an innovative, ultra-luxury cabin experience in the new AS2 supersonic private jet. F/LIST is working with Aerion to design a modern and luxurious cabin interior, including cabinets, liners, hard floorings and baggage liners. F/LIST currently supports Aerion with its unique expertise in interior engineering, certification support, materials & finishes during the development phase to provide the finest interior to the AS2.
The company has collaborated with Aerion Supersonic on the AS2 program since 2014. The core values and synergies of both companies have paved the way for a successful long-term relationship.
