The world's first passenger drone, the Ehang 184, capable of autonomously carrying a person in the air for 23 minutes has received necessary approval from Nevada's governor's office needed to develop and be tested at the state's Federal Aviation Administration-approved drone test site.

The Chinese firm Ehang, which unveiled the electric Ehang 184 passenger drone at CES in Las Vegas in January, says the Ehang 184 Autonomous Aerial Vehicle (AAV) is a 142-horsepower "personal flying vehicle" that can transport a single human being from Point A to Point B at an altitude of more than 11,000 feet.
