In the wake of the automotive electric revolution, the sky appears to be the next frontier. A segment once earmarked for futuristic sci-fi flicks, air taxis and electric flying cars are rapidly transitioning from fantasy to reality. As metropolises sprawl and urban traffic congestion worsens, the push for novel transit solutions intensifies.
HELI-EASTERN is a major low-altitude general aviation carrier and helicopter service provider in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (“Greater Bay Area”) in China. It has also been designated by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (“CAAC”) and the Shenzhen Municipal Government as a pilot unit for low-altitude aviation reform in China. The ground-breaking partnership will explore and further implement urban air mobility (“UAM”) operations in the designated integrated airspace for helicopters and AAVs in Shenzhen, China. This is an important milestone in implementing EHang’s 100 Air Mobility Routes Initiative in the Greater Bay Area.
