Bali flying taxi drone Ehan 216  test flight successfully launched on Friday (11/26/2021) at  Banjarangkan area in Klungkung The Ehang 216 flying taxi had a two minutes demonstration flight without  passenger’s  on Friday (11/26/2021) at the Negari Village at Banjarangkan in Klungkung . The flight test lasted for several minutes starting when it took off slowly into the air and then flew around the surrounding area. The flight distance is approximately at a radius of 200 meters from the runway. The Ehang 216 only circulated shortly in the air then returned to landing spot  on the runway without any obstacles. President director of Prestige Image Motocars Rudy Salim in his remarks said that Bali was chosen as a test flight site because it could attract tourists. Hopefully this trial can stimulate Bali tourism. The presence of Ehang 216 can be a solution to the problem of access that is difficult to penetrate by land transportation. Especially to access isolated areas. Currently has  the Ehang 616  not been able to fix the selling price of the transportation equipment made in China due to various obstacles. We are still calculating the price because there are still matters of taxation and the exchange rate is constantly changing,” said Rudy.
