• Drone DJ

AutoFlight said the hand-over to the unidentified client marked "the world's inaugural delivery of a civilian ton-class eVTOL aircraft." Its fellow China-founded rival, EHang, previously began handing off its lighter air taxis to customers in the country after receiving certification from regulators there. AutoFlight's delivery does appear to be unprecedented in Japan, where Prosperity has yet to obtain commercial authorization.
