EHang has received an initial order for five EH216 Autonomous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs) from the Tianxingjian Cultural Tourism agency in Hunan province, China. The two parties plan to develop a scenic flight project at the Aizhai Wonder Tourist Area in Jishou. Tianxingjian plans to purchase an additional twenty-five EH216s as the project evolves.
The agreement is part of EHang’s previous strategic partnership with the Jishou city government for in-depth collaboration on urban air mobility and aerial tourism.
Xin Fang, Chief Operating Officer of EHang, commented, “we are delighted to partner with the Jishou city government to jointly bring UAM solutions to Aizhai Wonder. EHang has been doing trial operations for aerial sightseeing since last year. We believe with our business expansion, EH216 AAVs will fly in more scenic spots around the world, bringing tourists safe and comfortable aerial sightseeing experiences.”
