EHang has obtained a Production Certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to mass produce its EH216-S pilotless electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

This milestone makes EHang the first company to obtain a Production Certificate (PC) for a passenger-carrying aircraft in the global eVTOL industry.

The achievement follows the company’s previous successes in obtaining a  Type Certificate (TC) and the Standard Airworthiness Certificate (AC) for the EH216-S.

Mr. Heyong Lin, Director of the Airworthiness Division of the Central-South Regional Administration of the CAAC, said:

In the past six months, EHang’s EH216-S has secured three groundbreaking achievements in airworthiness certification: the world’s first TC, PC and standard AC for the passenger-carrying UAV. EHang epitomises a pioneering enterprise of new business model in the Central and Southern region, representing new quality productive forces. The Central and Southern Regional Administration of the CAAC is dedicated to offering steadfast support to EHang, bolstering the high-quality development of the low-altitude economy.

The newly awarded Production Certificate indicates that EHang has established a mass production quality management system and can commence continued mass production of its EH216-S eVTOL.

The mass production quality management system for the EH216-S includes raw materials, supplier management, production organisation, production quality control, aircraft pre-delivery testing, after-sales repair and maintenance.

This system establishes clear guidelines and documentation for every step in the production procedure, ensuring that every aircraft and its components comply with the approved type design and safety requirements.

Mr. Huazhi Hu, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EHang, said:

The issuance of the PC is pivotal for the EH216-S as it opens the door to mass production, and a crucial step for our advancement towards commercial operations. As of today, the EH216-S has secured the TC, PC, and Standard AC from the CAAC. All the notable accomplishments relied on the collaboration and tireless efforts of the CAAC’s expert team and EHang’s team, and reflected our collective innovation, wisdom and expertise in aircraft design, manufacturing, quality management and other fields.

With the PC as the starting point, we are poised to gradually expand production and delivery to meet escalating market demands. Our vision is to introduce safe and reliable pilotless eVTOL aircraft to the global market, thereby offering safe, autonomous and eco-friendly air mobility services to everyone.
