Programme description

In June 2022 EHang announced that it has received an initial purchase order for five EH216 AAVs from Tianxingjian Cultural Tourism Investment and Development LLC, an affiliated enterprise of the Jishou city government in Hunan province, China. “The two parties plan to develop a scenic flight project at the Aizhai Wonder Tourist Area (“Aizhai Wonder”) in Jishou. Tianxingjian plans to purchase additional 25 units of EH216 as the project evolves. It is an implementation of EHang’s previous strategic partnership with the Jishou city government for in-depth and extensive collaborations on UAM, such as aerial tourism, UAM infrastructure and operation center development, professional technician training, etc.

“The Jishou city government is striving to develop strategic emerging industries for tourism. The integration of EH216 AAV technologies and Aizhai cultural tourism resources can further enhance Jishou’s tourism brand,” said Xiufeng Wu, Director of the Management Office of Dehang Scenic Spot in Jishou.
