EHang recently successfully completed the first trial flights of its EH216 in Beijing. It was the first time that a passenger-grade AAV flied over the capital of China, a highly regulated airspace in China. These unmanned trial flights obtained the official approval from the airspace regulator.

In February 2021, two units of EH216 completed a total of five unmanned trial flights over the frozen Yanqi Lake in Beijing at an air temperature of minus 14 degrees Celsius. EHang believes trial flights in extreme weather and diversified environments demonstrate the safety and reliability of its cutting-edge AAV technologies. EHang has tested the EH216 with a series of successful trial flights in extreme conditions such as low temperature, hot desert, heavy fog and typhoons.

As of February 2021, EHang has successfully conducted more than 10,000 trial flights of its EH216 AAV, including passenger-carrying trial flights, in 42 cities across 8 countries.

EHang has been working closely with the regulatory authorities on regulations and industry standards for urban air mobility. EHang will continue to strictly comply with regulatory requirements and drive the industry development, with the mission to make safe, autonomous and eco-friendly air mobility accessible to everyone.
