Beijing plays host to EHang 216 demo flights
By February 2021, EHang had conducted more than 10,000 trial flights of its EH216 AAV, including passenger-carrying trial flights, in 42 cities across eight countries. Next on the company's list was the Chinese capital.
EHang has been working closely with the authorities on regulations and industry standards for urban air mobility.

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

In February 2021, two EH216 units completed 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 AAV technologies. The company has tested the EH216 with a series of successful trial flights in extreme conditions such as low temperatures, hot deserts, heavy fog and typhoons.

As of February 2021, EHang has conducted more than 10,000 trial flights of its EH216 AAV, including passenger-carrying trial flights, in 42 cities across eight countries. The organisation has been working closely with the 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.

The EH216 has now also flown over the South China Sea. The flights started from Hengqin New District and ended in Dong Ao Island in Zhuhai City.
