Ehang 216 AAV Passenger Drone
Weighing just 600-pounds, the EH 216 autonomous passenger drone uses sixteen sets of electric motors and propellers to lift itself into the air and move it forward along pre-programmed routes at up to 80 mph, while carrying two passengers or up to 600-pounds. It took to the skies in North Carolina ahead of the 2020 North Carolina Transportation Summit at the Raleigh Convention Center. Read more for a video and additional information.

The Federal Aviation Administration doesn’t allow autonomous aircraft to carry people, so no one flew in the EH 216 on Tuesday. Under FAA guidelines, NCDOT had to treat the demonstration flight as it would an airshow, so spectators were required to step back 500 feet and a fire truck and ambulance were also present.
