“Wencheng County plans to set up multiple aerial sightseeing routes at Tianding Lake, the Baizhangji Falls, the canyon and the verdant forests, as well as establish regular operations of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft,” stated EHang’s announcement.

EHang’s recent advancements in the aerial mobility sector extend beyond China. The company’s EH216-S successfully completed its maiden autonomous flight in Saudi Arabia, supported by local authorities including the General Authority of Civil Aviation and the Ministry of Transport and Logistics Services.
