EHang’s Completes Flight Demonstrations in Spain

EHang has successfully performed flight demonstrations of its EH216 autonomous aerial vehicle in Spain as part of the European Union’s Air Mobility Urban – Large Experimental Demonstration (AMU-LED) project.

The project, as one of Europe’s largest Urban Air Mobility (UAM) demonstration projects, aims to perform large-scale demonstrations of UAM services and safely integrate different types of unmanned aerial systems operations in urban environments.

The demonstrations were conducted at the Rozas Airborne Research Center of Spain’s National Institute of Aerospace Technology in Lugo, Galicia, Spain.

“EH216’s flight demonstrations are of paramount importance to the AMU-LED project, which enables the development of UAM and U-space in Europe. With the EH216 flight demonstrations, EHang is proud to continue contributing to innovative deployments of safe, sustainable and efficient aerial transportation for everyone with our cutting-edge AAV technologies,” said Victoria Jing Xiang, Chief Operating Officer, EHang Europe and Latin America.

In October, the Project Specific Certification Plan of the company’s EH216-S has been officially approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), making the aircraft the first certificated autonomous eVTOL aircraft in the world.
