Ghuangzhou-based eVTOL firm Ehang recently conducted first flight testing of its Ehang 184 aircraft and released footage of government officials and passengers being flown autonomously in the 2 seat AAV. The drone’s simplistic flight operation procedures are being touted as a vital asset to the future sales success of Ehang. For instance, a passenger need only input their desired destination, tap “Go” and sit back as the aircraft autonomously pilots itself to the arrival point. Testing of the Ehang 184 has even been conducted in typhoon conditions to satisfactory results.
