A low-altitude air show for electric vertical take-off and landing, or eVTOL aircraft kicked off on June 1 and runs to June 10 at the Heli Tiande Plaza – located in Tianhe district of Guangzhou city, the capital of South China's Guangdong province.

The show is one of the attractions and other initiatives designed to help build up Guangzhou as the first city in China to conduct commercial operations of eVTOL aircraft – in line with its recent implementation plan for the development of the low-altitude flying economy.

The event is displaying several star products by the country's leading eVTOL companies. They include the VT-30 and EH216 series of products by EHang, the X2 flying car by XPeng, and the UFO-shaped aircraft by Shenzhen SMD UAV.
