Abstract
Optical Airy beams have gained significant attention due to their parabolic trajectory, accelerating and nondiffractive behavior. The phase velocity of the Airy solution to the paraxial wave equation is described showing a unique behavior. The velocity is shown to vary spatially and in magnitude as the beam propagates through vacuum along its curved trajectory.
