Airborne-Unmanned 11.30.21: EHang 216, S-100 Goes North, Czech eVTOL Project

Also: DJI Joins AnimaMundi, Earth Defense Grid, Bladeless Balloon Drone, Aergility's ATLIS

E-Hang's 216 autonomous electric vehicle completed an aerial sightseeing demonstration at the tourist favorite of Bali, Indonesia working alongside local partner Prestige Aviation.

During a 5-minute unmanned flight at Villa Blackstone Beach, VIP guests saw the aircraft take off and hover amidst the beautiful backdrop before returning to earth on the painted landing target. Guests from Indonesia's directorate of civil aviation, industry authorities, and other VIPs preceded the momentous flight by speeches and photos. Schiebel, working with Andøya Space Defence, recently completed a test of their Camcopter S-100’s search and rescue capabilities in a week-long trial aboard the Norwegian Coast Guard's Nordkapp in the frigid northern waters above the 75th parallel. The unmanned aircraft was the focus of the week-long program through the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Arctic 2030, designed to sustain Norwegian interests in the inhospitable far north. Zuri, another eVTOL advanced air mobility contender, completed its first functional flight test in Prague, Czech Republic. The aircraft successfully lifted off and hovered in place in an early test of its flight systems and capabilities.The Zuri carries a mix of traits of both fixed-wing and multirotor aircraft, combining a propeller and aerodynamic wing stability for efficient, reliable cruise flight, with 8 rotors laid out on underwing pylons for short takeoff and vertical lift capability. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
