At eight years old, the Hera is among the newest aircraft in the Commonwealth Airways fleet.

The Comen Hera 55 is the world’s smallest supersonic passenger aircraft, and the first of its size to include a swing wing. Passengers love its skylights.

You can only fly them with Commonwealth Airways, the flag carrier of Vekllei and a vital link between its 71 island republics.

Design Notes

This jet flies primarily between islands in the Atlantic and the Caribbean, and it really needs low-speed flight manoeuvrability to properly land on runways that aren’t as long as those designed for larger, delta-wing international jets. To allow for both supersonic cruising and low-speed take-offs and landings, this design features a swing wing, and it changes angle mid-flight.
