Ever since the Wright Brothers proved motorized flight possible, people dreamed of having their own personal flying vehicle to soar over buildings and other obstacles to get to work, run errands or visit family and friends. The concept of convenient door-to-door air travel captured our imaginations and offered the potential for on-demand aviation to become part of our daily lives. It has taken over a century of technological innovation and a convergence of market conditions for the dream of personal aircraft to finally be actualized.
No longer the subject of fantasy and science fiction, the flying car has now become reality thanks to Doroni LLC. Beginning in 2016, our multi-disciplinary team has been leveraging cutting-edge technologies to develop a revolutionary new eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) platform with semi-autonomous capability that any adult can operate, called the Doroni flying car. Our vision is to provide a safe, affordable, easy-to-maneuver, environmentally friendly and economical aircraft, with the added benefit of an aesthetically striking futuristic design. The Doroni team plans to customize its scalable electric flying car for uses other than personal transportation such as cargo delivery, industrial applications, recreation, emergency services, military support and as a multi-passenger air taxi.
One of the factors driving the vibrant development and planned integration of sustainable manned and unmanned aerial vehicles is the overburdened ground transportation system which is negatively impacting the quality of life in major metropolitan areas. The need for greater mobility options in cities around the world, particularly during peak periods, increases every day as road traffic becomes further gridlocked. Stress, losses in productivity, excessive fuel consumption, and destruction of the environment from harmful emissions are generating significant health, economic and environmental costs, which have reached a critical stage. The desire for faster, more efficient and cost-effective package delivery services by major e-commerce retailers has also been a factor in the development of this emerging niche aviation market.
We welcome the opportunity to meet the challenges presented by the fast-paced and continuously evolving transportation and aviation industries.
Our mission is to transform intracity transportation, improving the way we work, play and live. We are helping to define the future of urban air mobility, engaging with the aviation industry, academia, the military, regulatory agencies as well as our prospective civilian and commercial customers. Our personal flying vehicle will offer a safe, practical, inexpensive and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional automobile transportation.

Built on proven drone technology, the Doroni H1 personal flying car is an electrically powered 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 aircraft boasts a heavy duty 400-pound capacity, may be flown by an onboard pilot or remotely controlled, and offers the utmost in customization, payload and passenger options:
Doroni’s team has designed, built, tested and lifted off the ground a 643 pound, full scale, single seat, prototype eVTOL, as follows:
Complete engineering of our single and two passenger aircraft, including finalization of structure propulsion and control systems, aerodynamics and performance goals.
Even with the popularity of autonomous cars, there is an urgent need to revolutionize our wheels-based forms of transportation because of the increasing congestion in urban environments. The future will include safe, efficient and eco-friendly personal aircraft, and Doroni will play a major role in providing an affordable, high-quality solution.
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.
BIS Research Lead Analyst Sudheer Uniyal commented, “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?," states that "VTOLs, could also open up a whole new world of business across multiple sectors.” That potential, according the investment firm’s analysts, points to a worldwide market of $1.5 trillion by 2040. Some analysts are even more bullish, foreseeing a market of nearly $3 trillion.
