The AEgIS (Antimatter Experiment: Gravity, Interferometry, Spectroscopy) experiment is designed to test the weak equivalence principle with antimatter by studying the free fall of antihydrogen in the Earth's gravitational field. A pulsed antihydrogen beam will be produced by charge exchange reaction between cold positronium excited to Rydberg states and cold antiprotons. A classical moirè deflectometer will be used to measure the free fall of the antihydrogen beam. After the description of the apparatus assembled at the Antiproton Decelerator at CERN, the recent advancements of the experiment will be reported.
