EHang to introduce air tourism in northwest China

• New Atlas

At a ceremony on May 9, executives from EHang and the LN Group inked a deal that would see the LN Garden Hotel build an urban air mobility platform to offer guests aerial sightseeing and an air taxi service, as well as entertain with aerial light shows, educate through exhibitions and operate drone logistics. Indeed media in attendance at the signing ceremony were given brief air tours around the hotel in EHang's 216 air taxi, before settling down for an acrobatic drone light show.

The 216 autonomous aerial vehicle features a two passenger pod surrounded by eight arms with two rotors on each. The electric air taxi has a reported top speed of 130 km/h (80 mph) and a maximum flight time of 21 minutes.
