EHang opens its operations and demonstration centre in Shenzhen

EHang Holdings Limited has announced the launch of the UAM Operation Demonstration Center (UAM Center) at OH Bay, in the Bao’an district of Shenzhen. “Following the EHang’s strategic partnership with the Shenzhen Bao’an District Government in July, this significant milestone marks another big step forward towards the parties’ joint efforts for the launch of aerial sightseeing services for the next phase,” said a company press release.

This UAM Centre has been built by Bao’an Transportation Group with the support from the Bao’an District Government. It covers a total area of approximately 4,600 square meters, hosting a comprehensive set of facilities including a bespoke eVTOL vertiport for EHang’s passenger-carrying pilotless eVTOL aircraft EH216-S, hangars, a command-and-control center, passenger waiting area, a service center, and various expended essential amenities.

At the launch event for the UAM Center, an EH216-S completed its demo flight over OH Bay, which was witnessed by local government officials, regulators, enterprise representatives and citizens.

“Meanwhile, Bao’an Transportation Group entered into a letter of intent on cooperation with EHang. Two parties will continue to work together to set up an operation demonstration model for passenger-carrying unmanned aerial vehicles and to build a low-altitude economy ecosystem in Shenzhen. Furthermore, Shenzhen Boling Holding Group Co., Ltd., which has purchased five units of EH216-S from EHang and plans to purchase additional 95 units in the future, recently established a subsidiary Shenzhen Pengcheng Wings General Aviation Co., Ltd. (“Pengcheng Wings”), a joint venture with EHang. Pengcheng Wings will be involved in multi-party-cooperation on the low-altitude UAM operations as a flight service operator in Shenzhen.”
