On June 22, the EH216-S pilotless electric vertical takeoff and landing (“eVTOL”) aircraft successfully completed its first passenger-carrying flight in Wencheng, marking the launch of the “Low-Altitude Tourism in Wencheng” initiative. During the flight, the EH216-S carried multiple passengers on a scenic tour over the renowned Tianding Lake at the Baizhangji Fall & Feiyun Lake Scenic Resort, providing stunning views of Wencheng’s natural beauty. A dedicated takeoff and landing site and supporting facilities for the EH216-S have been established at the Scenic Resort. Plans are in place to gradually develop a UAM operation center and supporting infrastructure in other areas of Wencheng, laying the groundwork for the launch of EH216-S aerial sightseeing services and setting a benchmark for low-altitude cultural tourism.

Under a cooperation agreement between EHang and the Wencheng County Government, both parties will collaborate to develop UAM services and a supporting public service ecosystem for the low-altitude economy. They will also explore diverse low-altitude commercial operations for applications such as tourism, transportation, logistics, emergency response, and more, fostering a synergistic effect for the low-altitude economy. Wencheng County intends to establish aerial sightseeing routes in scenic attractions like Tianding Lake and Baizhangji Fall this year and launch pilotless eVTOL aerial sightseeing services.

Mr. Zhaozheng Luo, Secretary of Wencheng County Government, emphasized, “This year marks a significant milestone in Wencheng’s low-altitude economy development. Wencheng will fully utilize its advantages, including its clean airspace, rich terrain, and unique locations, to actively develop the low-altitude economy. Through innovation in this emerging industry, we will collaborate with EHang to explore new business models, accelerate the integration of low-altitude applications, scenic attractions, and local culture. By advancing low-altitude scenarios in Wencheng, we aim to foster low-altitude industries, empower diverse business models, and refine low-altitude service management for enhanced efficiency and safety. Ultimately, Wencheng aspires to become a demonstration county for high-quality low-altitude economy development, contributing to Wenzhou’s objective of achieving a GDP exceeding RMB1 trillion and a resident population exceeding RMB10 million, as well as Zhejiang’s vision of becoming a pioneering civil aviation province.”

Mr. Zhao Wang, Chief Operating Officer of EHang, stated, “Following the receipt of the Type Certificate, Standard Airworthiness Certificate, and Production Certificate for our EH216-S, we have experienced a surge in bulk orders from customers and partners worldwide. This signifies market recognition of our innovative pilotless eVTOL products and solutions, as well as the strong demand for UAM and low-altitude economy development globally. With the delivery of the initial batch of orders to Wencheng and the local debut flight of the EH216-S, we will collaborate with Wencheng to establish a benchmark for low-altitude economy operations in Zhejiang Province. This will drive industry growth in the East China region and promote the widespread adoption of new productivity capabilities enabled by pilotless eVTOLs.”
