What is air taxi?

As crowds are pouring into the city, life speeds up, traffic gets denser, and urbanization is close to collapse. We can see more and more roads, tunnels, bridges, still don't solve the problem.

The electrical, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTL), autopilot air taxi could be the best solution.

That's why varies magnates start to invest in this industry, to be exact, it is Urban Air Mobility industry, which is an emerging aspect of air transportation for human and goods in the near future. A new Blue Paper from Morgan Stanley Research projected a total addressable market of $1.5 trillion for autonomous aircraft by 2040.

EHang AAV (Autonomous Aerial Vehicle) made a big step for the whole Urban Air Mobility industry by carrying up to 17 people in Vienna, April 4th, 2019.

At CES 2016, EHang officially launched the world’s very first electric AAV for low-airspace short-distance air transportation. With the core concepts of autopilot, full redundancy safety design and cluster management by intelligent command and control center, pilots are no longer necessary for a flight, while passengers only need to click the “take-off” button to fly to the selected destination. EHang will provide every passenger a truly enjoyable journey by the safe and intelligent autopilot system.

In February, 2018, EHang has unveiled footage of the latest test flights of EHang AAV in Guangzhou, China. Since then, EHang AAV conducted an array of flight demonstrations in Amsterdam, Doha, Vienna.

EHang is a world's leading autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) technology platform company based in Guangzhou, China.
