Ever since the Wright Brothers proved human flight possible, people have envisioned the convenience and efficiency of soaring over obstacles to get to work, go on vacation, and visit friends and family. The need for autonomous urban aircraft increases every day, as crowding chokes our cities, gridlock stifles our productivity, and car exhaust fumes despoil our air.
Long the subject of fantasy and science fiction, the flying car is about to become reality, thanks to Doroni LLC. Starting in 2016, we have developed and leveraged cutting-edge technology to rapidly build an affordable autonomous urban aircraft that any adult can operate.
Doroni’s mission is to provide a an easy-to-maneuver/control, environmentally friendly, economical mode of transportation solution. The Doroni flying car will deliver you, your loved ones, and your property safely to your destination in a fraction of the time it takes to drive and with little impact on the environment with low maintenance.
The Doroni Team is transforming the way the world commutes, works, and plays. We are helping define the future of urban air mobility championed by the Federal Aviation Administration, academia, potential customers, and visionary investors like you. Our personal flying vehicle offers a safe, easy, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional automobile transportation.
Built on proven drone technology, the Doroni personal flying car is a electric, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicle compact enough to store and recharge in a two-car garage and light enough to be towed by the family sedan.
The craft boasts a heavy-duty 400-pound capacity and can be flown by an onboard pilot or remote-control, providing the utmost in customization, payload and passenger options:
Doroni’s team has designed, built and lifted off the ground a 643 pound, full scale, single seat, prototype eVTOL. This includes: Successfully tested conceptual design of personal e-VTOL. Designed and built the fundamental systems architecture for flight systems: Systems Monitoring, Flight Control, Fail Safe triggers. Designed, built and approved Doroni’s battery architecture and wiring. Checked control and propulsion systems, confirmed our fluid dynamic calculations and control system firmware. Performed several hovering tests which confirmed the direction of our next steps, choice of materials and electrical motors. Designed the next step-the Doroni’s commercial product: Adding airfoil surfaces which generates additional lift for horizontal flight. Optimize fuselage shape to minimize drag, thereby increasing the overall lift of the aircraft and hence increasing energy efficiency. Increase horizontal speed and minimize energy consumption for horizontal flight by adding props pushers. Increase payload to 400 pound to enable two seater configuration.
Gathering insights our team gained in building and deploying the prototype enabled us to immediately begin engineering and patenting our two-sitter commercial product.
Doroni’s team plans to customize the flying car for uses other than personal transportation – commercial, industrial, recreational, emergency services, armed forces and more.
We relish the opportunity to meet the challenges presented by the fast-paced and continuously evolving transportation and aviation industries.
As population expansion is taking place, we understand that even with the popularity of autonomous cars there is an urgent need to revolutionize our wheels-based forms of transportation. Mankind has been destroying beautiful terrain and polluting the air just to create transportation pathways, while above ground there are endless unutilized routes available. We see the future going wheel less, where each one of us will travel with a Doroni. The technology is already there to support an eco-friendly, easy, affordable, fast, efficient and safe way of commuting.
And we are already doing it...
According to Global Electric VTOL (eVTOL) Aircraft Market - Analysis and Forecast, 2025-2035 from BIS Research, the electric VTOL aircraft market is estimated to reach $524 million by 2025 and is projected to reach $1.9 billion by 2035. That’s a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.75 percent. Much of that growth is expected to come as the personal flying vehicle niche claims transportation market share from traditional modes such as automobiles, rideshare, taxicabs, public transportation, and airlines.
According to BIS Research Lead Analyst Sudheer Uniyal, “The U.S. is one of the most prominent countries with a considerable potential for the growth of the global eVTOL aircraft market. In 2025, the U.S. is expected to dominate the global eVTOL aircraft market, acquiring the maximum market share.”
But that is just the beginning. A Morgan Stanley report, Are Flying Cars Preparing for Takeoff? VTOLs “could also open up a whole new world of business across multiple sectors.” That potential, according the investment firm’s analysts point to a worldwide market of $1.5 trillion by 2040. Some analysts are even more bullish, foreseeing a market or nearly $3 trillion.
