EHang is expanding its influence in the new area of medical air mobility as it promotes the use of its self-flying vehicles beyond aerial sightseeing, passenger transport and aerial logistics.

On Friday, Guangzhou-based EHang said that it has been picked to join a European Aviation Safety Agency-backed project which aims to showcase how drones could contribute to the European Union’s healthcare system.

Under the project, EHang will use its EHang 216 and Falcon autonomous aerial vehicles to transport medical supplies during demonstration flights that will take place in the urban airspaces of cities including Belgium’s Antwerp, and Germany’s Aachen, as well as the Netherlands’ Heerlen and Maastricht.

EHang will also write flight performance assessment and recommendation reports for the project, which will be used to help the European Commission implement its U-space blueprint, which aims to let drones operate in all classes of airspace.

Admission into the project comes days after EHang joined a French program to build an urban air mobility system in the Paris region.

In the third quarter of last year, EHang narrowed its net losses to 1.1 million yuan ($170,000) from 10.2 million yuan in the same period of 2019, with sales of 23 EHang 216s, according to the company’s latest earnings report.
