Hong Kong-based HAECO Group is partnering with Chinese eVTOL developer EHang to establish after-sales support for its EH216-S aircraft. In October 2022, HAECO signed an MOU with EHang to co-develop maintenance services in preparation for commercial operation of the eVTOL aircraft, which is in the final stages of certification with the Civil Aviation Administration of China. The partnership will include cooperation in areas including aircraft maintenance, continued airworthiness management, personnel training and digital platforms. EHang plans to operate its eVTOL from a variety of locations throughout China. HAECO operates several facilities in Hong Kong and 17 locations in China’s mainland.
