An EHang 216 took four passengers to the air for aerial sightseeing trips over the sea around the beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf in Yantai city, one of the many AAAA national tourist attraction locations throughout China.

The passengers were enthusiastic about their first-ever AAV rides. They commented, “It was amazing.  I felt safe throughout the journey. The EHang 216 flew at a steady pace with almost no turbulence.  This was my first time to experience such a ‘bird’s eye view’ from the air. I cannot wait to take another trip!”
