EHang has announced that it has received a production certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC) for its EH216-S autonomous eVTOL. This is the first of its genre to receive a production certificate and another first for the programme, which received its type certificate from the CAAC last year. The production certificate will allow the company to begin making deliveries to customers in China.

Mr Huazhi Hu, founder, Chairman and CEO of EHang, remarked, “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.”
