EHang Flies in North Carolina
EHang flew its two-passenger 216 Autonomous Aerial Vehicle (unmanned) for a crowd of around 100 in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Jan. 7, in conjunction with the 2020 North Carolina Transportation Summit. This was the first free-flight public eVTOL air taxi demonstration in the US. The flight was made with approval from the FAA (shown with EHang co-founder and chief marketing officer Derrick Xiong) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation. EHang said it has completed more than 2,000 flights in China, Austria, the Netherlands, Qatar and the United States.
