EHang, an autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) technology platform company, announced that the company has achieved a significant milestone for EH216-S TC by successfully completing all of the planned tests and flights 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. After finishing the remaining procedures, the Company expects to obtain the type certificate of EH216-S Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) System from the CAAC soon.

CAAC officially accepted the EH216-S TC application in January 2021 and EHang stated that proved that EH216-S meets the safety standards and airworthiness requirements by the CAAC, through scientific approaches, multi-angle demonstrations, rigorous testing, and continuous optimizations.

“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”, said Huazhi Hu, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EHang.
