EHang has successfully completed all of the planned tests and flights of EH216-S unmanned aerial vehicle in the last phase of demonstration and verification of compliance, and also completed the definitive TC Flight Test by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
This is the last milestone before obtaining the type certificate, which the company expects soon.
CAAC officially accepted the EH216-S TC application in January 2021, since when EHang has met requirements involving the battery, environment, material, strength, electronics, software, data link and ground control station.
As an innovative product for urban air mobility, the EH216-S adheres to three fundamental technological principles, which are full redundancy, autonomous flying and cluster management.
Huazhi Hu, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EHang, comments, “We've made remarkable progress in our pursuit of long-term growth. Notably, we are thrilled to announce that we have successfully completed all the planned tests for EH216-S type certification. This achievement marks a significant unprecedented milestone in the global emerging eVTOL industry, underscoring our unwavering dedication and pioneering advantages. Additionally, this sets the stage for us to secure the type certificate soon and proceed with our endeavors to initiate commercial operations. I would like to express my gratitude to the CAAC's officials and the review team as well as the company's airworthiness certification team for their unwavering efforts and persevering spirits. It is their professionalism, exceptional technological expertise, and collaborations that have led us to our impressive achievement today. I believe the remaining procedures will be finished very soon before the official authorisation of the type certificate. It will pave the way for our commercial operations in the next stage.”
