GENEVA Aerion Corp., which is still looking for a manufacturing partner to develop, certify and build its supersonic business jet design, is not getting an eager reception among the established makers of bizjets. An exhibitor at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, the company came here to meet with potential partners and promote its unique aircraft’s design, which centers on a supersonic natural laminar flow wing and a derivative of the Pratt & Whitney JT8D-219 turbofan engine.
