EHang announced that its EH216 drone has successfully completed flight demonstrations in Spain as part of the European Union's "Urban Air Mobility - Large-scale Experimental Demonstration" ("AMU-LED") project, one of the largest urban air mobility demonstration projects in Europe. The EH216 flight demonstrations were recently conducted at the Rozas Airborne Research Center of the Spanish National Institute of Aerospace Technology in Lugo, Galicia, Spain. These demonstrations verified and validated the concepts of urban air mobility operations, in order to achieve the objectives of the AMU-LED project.

The AMU-LED project is part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 program framed in the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) Joint Undertaking. The ultimate goal of the project is to achieve large-scale demonstrations of urban air mobility services with aerial vehicles and the safe integration of different types of unmanned aerial system operations in urban environments. The project started in January 2021 and is scheduled to conclude with successful flight demonstrations performed by EHang with its EH216 UAV at CIAR in Spain in October 2022.
...Through scenarios including conflict management
For the demonstrations, flight data from the autonomous EH216 ADAVe (eVTOL) was integrated into the project's U-space platform. The demonstration flights were conducted under a variety of simulated scenarios, which include the presence of other unmanned aerial systems in the surrounding airspace, and the implementation of conflict management procedures during flight and approach to the landing vertiport.
