EHang’s Unmanned Aircraft Cloud System (UACS) has been officially approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for trial operations.
This achievement helps pave the way for commercial operations once its EH216-S unmanned passenger-carrying aircraft achieves certification.
UACS technology is used to ensure secure and efficient operations of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
The approval letter issued by the CAAC confirms that EHang’s UACS meets relevant civil aviation standards in China.
The EHang UACS manages airspace, UAVs, flight plans and operators to enable multiple aircraft to safely and reliably operate within the same airspace.
These abilities will be crucial in EHang’s commercial operations of its EH216-S.
“EHang UACS trial operation has received official approval from the CAAC, indicating that EHang has been recognised by the authority of the national regulator. From unmanned aerial vehicle systems to the UACS, as well as operating teams and service platforms, EHang has made comprehensive and sufficient preparation for the upcoming commercial operations after years of planning. With EHang's long-term accumulated advantages, we are confident and well-positioned to embark on a new chapter of urban air mobility operations with our partners.”
Over the past two years, EHang has completed over 9,300 successful low-altitude tourism flight trials in 20 locations in China as part of its application for type certification.
It now plans to be the world’s first manufacturer and operator of a passenger-carrying unmanned vehicle system.
