Chinese drone manufacturer EHang is partnering with the state of Nevada to test its new single-seat, autonomous-flight drone designed to carry individual passengers on short trips across town.

The 18-foot-long, 440 lb. drone has four arms, eight propellers and can fly up to 63 mph. It can go about 20 miles, for roughly a 23-minute flight, and can carry one person who doesn’t need to pilot the drone.

Passengers simply set their destination using an onboard tablet and only a take off/land button needs to be pushed to travel.

“EHang’s selection of Nevada to test its people-carrying drone marks a thrilling addition to the innovative companies testing throughout our state to advance the commercial drone industry. I personally look forward to the day when drone taxis are part of Nevada’s transportation system,” said Tom Wilczek, GOED’s Aerospace and Defense Industry Specialist, in a statement released by EHang.

The drone also takes off and lands in a vertical fashion, eliminating the need for a runway.

In January, the company unveiled its EHang 184 model at CES 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the world’s largest consumer tech trade show.
