Firefighting EHang EH216F ready to go in China
With autopilot, quick response and cluster management, the EH216F is designed to address pain points in urban high-rise firefighting and become a valuable complement to the existing firefighting system.
The aircraft will tackle blazes in urban high rise areas.

AAV platform EHang Holdings has successfully completed the technical examination of its EH216F firefighting AAV by the China National Fire-Fighting Equipment Quality Supervision Testing Center (NFFE) as entrusted by the company. The NFFE is a national firefighting equipment quality examination agency under the Ministry of Emergency Management (MEM) of the People's Republic of China. Its nationwide responsibilities include standards development, centralised management and technical guidance for firefighting equipment products, including firefighting unmanned aerial vehicles.

The NFFE's technical examination is widely used in the firefighting equipment markets and the MEM system and is considered the cornerstone of quality for firefighting products in China. EH216F's successful completion of the technical examination certifies that it conforms to the firefighting UAV standards and requirements by the NFFE, and EHang believes it will further enhance customer confidence and promote the recognition and adoption of EHang's high-rise firefighting solutions in the commercial markets of China and further abroad.

The NFFE conducted a comprehensive 10-month technical examination on EH216F, and 52 different types of tests were completed in areas such as flight control functions, hovering and return accuracy, high/low altitude flights, electromagnetic compatibility, wind resistance, high/low temperature adaptability, vibration/shock resistance, radiant heat resistance and smoke performance.

The EH216F was officially launched in July 2020. With key advantages in autopilot, quick response and cluster management, the EH216F is designed to address pain points in urban high-rise firefighting and become a valuable complement to the existing firefighting system. This firefighting AAV model demonstrates the commercial capabilities of EHang's AAV technology in practical scenarios such as aerial firefighting and emergency rescues.
