TechFast, March 9th – Recently, the electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL) named “Shengshilong” took off from the Shekou Cruise Terminal in Shenzhen, Guangdong, and landed at the Jiuzhou Port Terminal in Zhuhai after about 20 minutes of flight.

This marks the world’s first public demonstration flight of an electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft crossing the sea and cities.

The successful flight means that the ground journey from Shenzhen to Zhuhai, which normally takes 2.5 to 3 hours, can be shortened to just 20 minutes.

eVTOL aircraft, also known as “air taxis,” have advantages over helicopters including higher safety, lower passenger costs, lower maintenance costs, lower noise, and higher levels of intelligence. It has become an industry highland contested by major countries around the world.

The “Shengshilong” tested this time is an eVTOL model independently developed by Peak Flight Aviation. It has a compound wing configuration, a maximum takeoff weight of 2000 kilograms, a maximum payload of 400 kilograms, a maximum range of 250 kilometers, a maximum cruising speed of 200 kilometers per hour, and can carry up to 5 people. The core module has achieved 100% localization.

According to CCTV News, after large-scale application in the future, the single-seat ticket price from Shenzhen to Zhuhai is expected to be around two to three hundred yuan.

Currently, taking a taxi from Shenzhen to Zhuhai costs five to six hundred yuan and takes nearly three hours, while taking a boat costs over one hundred yuan and takes over an hour.
