Doroni Aerospace Inc., a Miami-based eVTOL developer, has completed a critical tethered flight test with an eVTOL prototype, the Doroni H1.
The flight test comes on the back of the company successfully completing yaw, pitch, and roll testing with the H1 prototype, as well as propulsion and autopilot integration with the aircraft.
The Doroni H1 is company’s go-to-market vehicle, and the company is on track to begin flight testing by Q4 of 2023, with plans to secure FAA certification and launch commercially in the second half of 2024.
The Doroni H1 currently under development is a two seater personal eVTOL that will be made available for public purchase, with an estimated starting retail price of $195k, which anyone can own, fly, and park in a standard two car garage. In order to start operating it, customers will need a current valid driver’s license and completion of a 20-hour training course.
