Looks like a 1960s style design.
Quote:
The Aerion AS2 business jet will fly at a top speed of 1,217 mph (1960 km/h), which is almost as fast as Concorde, which flew at 1,350 mph (2,170 km/h).

-----

Airbus will provide all the major components

[...]

Dubbed the 'Son of Concorde, AS2 will fly at lower speeds over land because of flight restrictions related to sonic booms.

The US forbids civilian planes from reaching the sound barrier - about 750 mph (1,200 km/h) - while flying overland due to noisy sonic booms.

But over Europe the AS2 can fly at supersonic speeds without detection.
Presumably that last part means it doesn't cause sonic booms?

I don't recall. Though I do wonder how viable it will be.
