OVERVIEW


We want to make transportation sustainable

*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


Our mission is to bring new sustainability to commuter transportation by making flight accessible to the masses. The Doroni H1 is our go-to-market personal eVTOL (AKA “flying car”) that will offer a safe, practical, and environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional automobiles. We are helping define the future of Urban Air Mobility by engaging with the aviation industry, academia, the military, and the FAA as well as our prospective civilian and commercial customers.

THE PROBLEM


Transportation as we know it is broken

Automobiles deal massive damage to our planet and force us to rely on infrastructure that’s both costly and unsustainable. The transportation sector generates the largest share of greenhouse emission in the US (Source), added to the fact that state and local governments spent $203 billion on highways and roads in 2019 alone (Source). The White House has taken major steps to combat the problem, committing $39 billion to modernize transit and reduce carbon emissions via the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (Source). 


As population densities in cities continue to increase, gridlock and traffic will only get worse—reducing our quality of life and negatively impacting our mental health (Source). The world needs a new mode of transportation that can lighten the load on our environment and infrastructure.




THE SOLUTION


We are building a personal eVTOL anyone can own


The Doroni H1 is a personal eVTOL that anyone can own, fly, and park in a standard 2-car garage. No pilot’s license required—all you’ll need is a valid driver’s license and completion of a 20-hour training course (which we’ll provide) to get started. 


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


Our team designed an intuitive, easy-to-use aircraft control system for the H1 based on an auto-stabilizing, multi-rotor aircraft with 3 axes of movement. By simplifying the inherent complexities of plane and helicopter flight, we can make it user-friendly and accessible to everyone. 


Democratizing Flight

We’re building what we believe will become the go-to family vehicle of the future, capable of revolutionizing the way we live, commute, and even build cities if scaled correctly. While the industry is currently getting commercial air taxi operations off the ground, Doroni is aiming to disrupt the personal mobility market, as we believe personal eVTOLs—not commercial air taxis—are the future of transportation.



Our technology and design are what set us apart. The Doroni H1 combines the best features of a drone and an aircraft, designed with ease of use, quick deployment, and practicality in mindand we’re set on growing our current intellectual property to include 9+ design, aerodynamic, and battery utility patents by Q1 2023. 


Plus, we’re targeting a Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) certification with the FAA that would make us extremely viable when compared to the complicated and time-consuming certification processes of our larger air taxi competitors. 


From its inception with the Doroni Y6 and X8 prototypes that came before it, the Doroni H1 was designed to maximize safety and will undergo exhaustive multi-level quality control.

As a flying vehicle that you can park in your garage, safety must come first. That’s why we designed the H1 with ducted propellers that greatly increase its overall safety, while also enabling a higher thrust efficiency and greatly reduced noise levels. The H1 will also be equipped with airframe parachutes and a variety of sensors, which helps the aircraft maintain its altitude and position in windy conditions and during close maneuvers in crowded environments.


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.g


The Doroni H1 sports a blazing fast charge time of 15-20 minutes, has a cruising speed of 100 mph, max speed of 140 mph, and currently has a range of 60 miles. As EV technology continues to advance, we project this range to increase to 100 miles as we near product launch. 


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


In terms of pilot control, each of the aircraft’s control sticks mirrors the other for right or left-handed use, with control taken over by the last stick engaged. Pitch, roll, and yawl are all integrated into this single stick and anti-collision sensors will maintain the aircraft’s position should you remove your hands from the stick.


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


This, combined with H1’s propulsion system, will make it a very agile and maneuverable vehicle that can accomplish a variety of tasks and therefore be used in a variety of different target markets. In particular, we are very excited to see how the H1’s quick deployment and ease of use will help shave minutes off the average EMS response time of 6-7 minutes in urban settings to help save lives. 

OUR TRACTION


We’re ready for take off!

THE MARKET


The Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market is projected to reach $1 Trillion by 2040 (Source)




The world is ready for an entirely new market

In 2021, two new bills were passed by the US House of Representatives targeting this sector—the Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act calls for the development of an interagency working group to help the federal government develop a strategy to promote AAM (Source).

NASA and the FAA are collaborating on the Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign—with a vision of developing an air transportation system that moves people and cargo between places using revolutionary new aircraft that are only just now becoming possible (Source).


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


NASA is also currently researching how AAM can help when disasters strike—assisting in firefighting missions and providing supplies to hard-to-reach areas during an emergency event. This can potentially be an air vehicle that’s used to rescue people trapped in a building or residential area after an earthquake that is otherwise difficult to reach (Source). 


The US Air Force launched the Agility Prime program in 2020—a transformative vertical lift program that’s partnering with the commercial eVTOL industry to propel the third revolution in aerospace and start to field a new class of mobility systems by 2023 (Source). 


The rest of the world is gearing up as well -- France is already testing electric air taxis with plans to have dedicated flying taxi routes ready in time for the 2024 Olympic Games (Source). 


(Source)


Air-One, the world’s first vertiport (areas designed specifically for eVTOL takeoff/landing) opened in April 2022 in Coventry, U.K., demonstrating the world’s first fully-operational eVTOL hub.


How we're different

The eVTOL market is divided into cargo, personal, and air taxi segments. The air taxi segment includes companies like Joby, Vertical, Lilium, and Archer and although these are potential competitors —to our knowledge, none of these companies have plans to offer their vehicles for personal purchase and use


The personal segment is further subdivided into 1- and 2-seater categories. 1-seaters typically have an open frame with exposed propellers, have limited range, and are intended for recreational/leisure use. The Doroni H1 falls under the 2-seater + Payload category, and it’s our understanding that our development is ahead of the competition in most cases. 


We see the tremendous benefit and value of entering the personal segment under this category: we’re standing at the beginning of a whole new market and we believe that as a US-based company located in the eVTOL hub of Florida, Doroni can become a major industry player. 

THE BUSINESS MODEL


We’re meeting history by creating it

Doroni is meeting this inflection point with a personal eVTOL that has multiple use cases across several sectors. Our business model consists of building, selling, and leasing the Doroni H1 eVTOL—generating revenue by specifically targeting emergency response, the military, law enforcement, and the purely recreational sports/leisure segment which includes sustainable tourism. This is in addition to order fulfillment of our LOI preorders from a security company. 



We anticipate delivering 1,132 units by our fifth year. Ultimately, we envision the Doroni H1 playing a role in future industry, from automobile manufacturers, to ride share companies, to global defense contractors.

WHY INVEST


The Future of Transportation


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


Customers from all over the country have already joined our waitlist to purchase the H1. The sky's the limit—our first raise proved we could exceed a $1.07 offering max. Now we're back on StartEngine to meet the demand from over 900+ investors and are looking to prove what's possible in our next Reg CF offering.


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development.


We know democratizing flight with a personal eVTOL is a bold goal, but innovation and excellence are not built on a foundation of small dreams. Doroni has the leadership, passion, and actual technology to create and introduce eVTOLs to the world. 


Our goal is no longer science fiction—and we have the working prototype to prove it. 



By investing in Doroni, you’re investing in a more sustainable mode of transportation that was designed to help save our ecosystem from the damage done by the antiquated automotive industry.


Join us in redefining transportation as we know it with the Doroni H1.

Doroni’s Commitment to the Environment (Part 2)

6 hours ago






Greetings Doroni Family!


I hope you had a great weekend and were able to recharge your batteries in preparation for the coming week. Speaking of batteries—


I’d like to share the insights of a fascinating article I came across recently via the Morning Brew eNewsletter (source)—and how it relates to eVTOLS in the US. 


According to a new report from Cox Automotive, Electric Vehicles (EVs) accounted for 5.6% of the total auto market in Q2 of this year. While that percentage may seem small, it points to some big implications. 5% is the tipping point where EVs skyrocket from niche into the mainstream, according to a Bloomberg analysis of 19 countries (source). This occurred in Norway in 2013, in China in 2018, and in South Korea in 2021. 


5% represents the moment where for many of us the conversation goes from “My neighbor has an EV… that’s strange” to “I’m seeing EVs everywhere… I think I want one, too.” 


If the US follows the same EV adoption pattern as other countries, then a full 25% of new car sales could be electric by the end of 2025, according to Bloomberg—smashing forecasts by a year or two. 



Many of us remember the first time we held a smartphone—they were weird and expensive and drew lots of attention. Now, it's weird not to own one. That same type of massive shift is happening now in electric vehicles, according to the Bloomberg analysis. 


But what do EV car sales have to do with eVTOLs? 


Doroni Aerospace believes that if this shift in EV adoption were to occur, it would potentially pave the way for eVTOL adoption as well. One of the main ways that EVs and eVTOLs are linked is in their battery technology. Electric vehicle battery technology and battery management systems inform the eVTOL industry in a number of ways. 


As battery technology advances for cars and trucks, it increases the capabilities of eVTOLs (especially in the personal segment), potentially making them more efficient and cost-effective. Plus—if you’re familiar with the moves that Hyundai, Toyota, and Honda have made to expand into the eVTOL industry, you know that big car developers hold a lot of sway. 


Picture above, the Doroni H1’s Lithium-based cells will provide for fully-electric flight with zero carbon emissions.


The federal government has made it clear that EVs are the future—the Biden administration has already committed $7.5 B for states to build electric charging infrastructure, and has made it clear that the US military will begin the electrification of their vehicles in the coming years. In addition GM and Pilot recently announced a partnership that would increase the number of fast chargers available in the US by 20%.


At Doroni, we believe that eVTOLs have the potential to be the next iteration of electric vehicles. While it seems that electric cars will gain in prominence in the coming years, they will likely be supplemented by other modes of electric transportation, especially as the eVTOL industry enters commercial operations in the next few years. 


It’s our opinion that this all adds up to reduced carbon emissions for the environment—transportation as it exists today is the biggest culprit of greenhouse gasses in the United States, accounting for 27% of total carbon emissions in 2020 alone.


Doroni H1 eVTOL

SAFE | SUSTAINABLE | EFFICIENT | COST-EFFECTIVE


It’s our mission to provide the world with a safe, sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective mode of transportation that helps save the planet with the potential to become the go-to family vehicle of the future.

What’s the Deal with the 10% StartEngine Owner’s Bonus?

5 days ago




Greetings Doroni Family,


While at the moment there are over 157 startup opportunities on StartEngine, not all of them participate in the StartEngine Owner’s Bonus program. Whether you’re new to StartEngine, or are a seasoned equity crowdfunding investor, you may have noticed this lightning bolt graphic below the “Invest Now” button on our Campaign Page:



From the get-go, Doroni Aerospace has been committed to providing the best value for our community of supporters and investors. 


Part and parcel with that is truly striving to communicate our latest progress updates with you in full transparency as often and as well as we are able to.


So… What’s the Deal with the 10% StartEngine Owners Bonus?


💡 You may have received an email from StartEngine recently breaking down this exciting feature, but we’d like to reiterate it here ICYMI—


What’s covered: As an Owner’s Bonus subscriber, you automatically receive 10% bonus shares (it’s in the name) on top of your investment in participating companies. Doroni Aerospace also offers a Loyalty Bonus, which gives prior investors a 5% bonus in shares. Note: in our case, these are Preferred Shares versus Common Stock. 


How it works:

  • You buy 100 shares of Company X, let’s say $1 per share

  • You receive 100 shares + 10% = 110 shares

  • BUT you still only pay $100


Hint: A yearly StartEngine subscription is $275, so you can cover the cost in bonus shares, once you invest $2,750+ in participating raises. 


Doroni also offers Rewards in specific tiers—a $5,000+ investment grants 5% bonus shares, a $10,000+ investment grants 10% bonus shares, etc. (head to the “Rewards” section at the top of this page for more info). 


One of the coolest features about this program is that you are able to stack the Owner’s Bonus & Rewards! So, for example, if you’re already a Doroni investor reinvesting $5,000+, you’ll unlock the 10% SE Owner’s Bonus + 5% Loyalty Bonus + 5% Bonus Reward for a total of 20% Bonus Preferred Shares!


We certainly hope you found this breakdown informative, Doroni Family. And we hope you consider taking full advantage of our current offering here on StartEngine!

Doroni’s Commitment to the Environment (Part 1)

7 days ago



Billy Nolen—Federal Aviation Administration acting chief—speaks at White House AAM Summit on Aug. 3rd, 2022. 



Greetings Doroni Family,


Last Wednesday, the White House held a summit on Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) that included drones and eVTOL aircraft. The summit looked at “the future of aviation in America and the regulatory strategy towards responsible and equitable adoption of these technologies.”


At Doroni, we view the White House summit through the lens of how public adoption of eVTOLs can help the environment—as you know, Doroni Aerospace is committed to doing our part to combat the global climate crisis. 


Transportation as it exists today is the biggest culprit of greenhouse gasses in the United States, accounting for 27% of total carbon emissions in 2020 alone—more than electricity and industry.


The White House summit addressed how AAM can help achieve goals for US domestic policy, national security, climate and job creation. According to Dan Dumbacher from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) who spoke at the summit:

“AAM could embody the single greatest transformation for aviation business, science, and policy along public perceptions, since the emergence of mainstream commercial aviation in the mid-20th century.”

We believe that electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, such as the Doroni H1 we are developing, stand to drastically reduce carbon emissions in the future, helping save our planet and reframe our transportation networks in a more efficient and sustainable way. 


Doroni H1 eVTOL

SAFE | SUSTAINABLE | EFFICIENT | COST-EFFECTIVE


It’s our mission to provide the world with a safe, sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective mode of transportation that helps save the planet with the potential to become the go-to family vehicle of the future.  


Stay tuned for Part 2 of our discussion of how we’re doing our part to help save the planet!

The entire Doroni team would like to offer our sincerest appreciation for your generous support. Every single day, your commitment brings us ever-closer to achieving our mission of democratizing flight with the Doroni H1 personal eVTOL, and we’re thrilled to have you by our side at every step of the journey. 


On the back of this milestone, we’re also proud to announce that Doroni has filed a new patent with the USPTO! We’re limited in diving too deeply into specifics, but this new intellectual property covers elements of our removable tablet PC on the Doroni dashboard:



Among other things, this patent also has the potential to streamline our certification process and help us get to market faster, as removable elements do not require FAA approval. This is in addition to helping deliver a sleek, sophisticated, and intuitive user experience to our end customers, with the added benefit of potentially improving maintenance and future-proofing and the H1’s dashboard computers.


Rest assured, this is just one of many patents we have in mind to make the H1 as safe, sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective as possible for our customers and community of investors. 


We hope you’re as excited as we are! As always, be sure to check in on us here on StartEngine for all our latest progress developments.

Oshkosh Diary Day 3–Safety is in our DNA

18 days ago




Greetings Doroni Family,


As you know, at Doroni Aerospace the customer is at the center of everything that we do, and as such every safety consideration possible has been baked into the design and nature of the Doroni H1 eVTOL. You could say, in fact, that safety is in our DNA. From its inception with the Y6 and X8 prototypes that came before it, the H1 was designed to maximize safety and will undergo exhaustive multi-level quality control. 


Check out the video below (from our booth at Oshkosh) where I take you through some of the H1’s unique safety features that we believe will position it among the safest vehicles on the market today:



We’re halfway through our time here in Oshkosh, but you can catch all the daily updates you may have missed here on StartEngine and our 📲 social media channels (FB, IG, Twitter, YouTube, & LinkedIn)!


And remember—⏰ there are just a couple days left to take advantage of our eVTOL VIP Bonus!

We’ve Raised $250K! + Investor Q&A

21 days ago



Doroni H1 eVTOL

SAFE | SUSTAINABLE | EFFICIENT | COST-EFFECTIVE


Greetings Doroni Family,


We’ve raised an incredible $250K in just a few short weeks on StartEngine! We’re so incredibly thrilled and humbled by your outpouring of support, which everyday gets us one step closer to achieving our mission of democratizing flight! EAA AirVenture 2022 is officially underway—keeps tabs on us as we'll be sharing updates from the show throughout the week!


One more quick note from our Welcome Back Webinar last week—we had a great showing of support from our community of investors and I’d like to share some of the great questions we had from our attendees. 


In addition to getting a complete overview of the company and a picture of our progress to date, part of the major value of these events is getting to put us in the “hot seat” so to speak. We try to make the most of our face time together, be it through Zoom or otherwise, and we’re always available to field your questions/comments via the “Comments” section here on StartEngine or at info@doroni.io.


Here are some great questions from the webinar, ICYMI—


At what point will you be reaching out to insurance companies to make sure that policies are available for operators and that any concerns that they may have are addressed?


We are planning to engage with insurance companies before the end of this year, as we know that the question of insurance is a big one. Insurance plays a critical role in nearly every facet of aviation, especially here in Florida which is the aerospace hub of the America’s, and we already have a lot of companies that are waiting to communicate with us for insurance. Our target to get that process started is before the end of this year. 


What changes to the power grid would these vehicles require? Will you be pursuing those in your interaction with the government?


The entire movement is going electric due in part to the government’s push for sustainability and reduced carbon emissions, whether that’s local city, state, or the federal government. President Biden has also recently announced that even the military has to begin the process of adopting electric vehicles to combat climate change. Doroni is already engaging with different levels of government, some which we cannot disclose, to discuss how Doroni fits in the equation as a part of the climate change solution.    


We are also supremely aware that in terms of eVTOL, there is not just a single vehicle. Doroni is part of a growing community, and this is part of a community acceptance issue, and we understand the gravity and importance of this adoption and do not take it lightly in the slightest. That’s part of the reason why as a company we are so keen on safety, and why it’s one of the pillars of our company. To accomplish our mission of becoming the go-to vehicle of the future, the Doroni eVTOL platform must be safer than most of the single-engine commercial aircraft out there, and that’s what we’re trying to achieve. 


Before it’s available for purchase will (the Doroni H1) be tested under a variety of weather conditions?


Of course, all weather conditions will be thoroughly tested before we release our final version of the Doroni eVTOL. The electronics, motors and all other systems will be waterproof and will be able to fly in all conditions that are safe, not only in warm weather but also in colder weather at high altitudes. 


I’d like to add, again, that we are based in Florida (Miami) and Florida provides a whole slew of challenging weather conditions—tremendous heat, humidity, and proximity to the ocean all put strains on the Doroni system, which in the end we believe are good for us and our preparation. We really have the ability to test our systems in rough conditions like strong winds and sudden rains. Since we are building the Doroni H1 eVTOL here in Florida, you can be sure we are taking this into consideration. Obviously, there will be weather conditions where it is unsafe to fly, and we do not expect any Doroni aircraft to be in the air under those conditions. 


Does the design take into consideration encounters with flocks of birds?


Yes—we believe one of the biggest advantages of ducted fans/propellers is that they are shielded from objects and debris the aircraft may encounter during flight, takeoff, and landing such as birds or rocks. We also have a very smooth, curved design of the front windshield to protect the aircraft from birds and debris during normal operation. In addition, the FAA includes some of the best certification procedures in the world, and we will be using these procedures to ensure that the Doroni eVTOL is safe from bird strikes.


How far can the Doroni travel on each full battery charge?


As of today, the Doroni H1 is capable of traveling 60 miles on a single charge. From our knowledge and from what we’re seeing in advancements within the electric vehicle space (including battery technology and battery management systems), by the time we are delivering our first units in 2024 we anticipate that range surpassing 100 miles on each charge. We believe that with government mandates pushing for 50% electric vehicles on the road by 2030, the eVTOL space will certainly benefit from a battery and range technological standpoint. 


I hope you found these questions/responses as informative and insightful as we did, Doroni Family! I’d like to also remind you that 🚀 The eVTOL VIP Bonus is now live on StartEngine! Invest today to receive an additional 30% Bonus PREFERRED Shares—plus, if you’re reinvesting with Doroni, you’ll earn an extra 5% bonus as a special reward.

We were then able to dive into our current stage and development, highlighting  the Doroni H1 cockpit design and functionality, and give participants some never-before-seen images of the completed cockpit on its way to Oshkosh!



By the time you read this, we should have already arrived at what's arguably the Queen Mother of all aviation events—the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022.

The Flight Experience of the Future

28 days ago



Greetings Doroni Family,


I know it’s a bold claim to make—but our vision with the Doroni H1 eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) is built on a foundation of completely rethinking the way we think of flight and what’s possible. 

The Doroni H1 eVTOL is a personal 2-seater aircraft with a 500 lb. payload that’s able to lift off vertically, attain cruising speeds of 100 MPH, and has a current range of 60 miles (projected to increase to 100 miles as we near product launch). 


We believe our future customers will one day be able to commute at a fraction of the time they’re used to with traditional autos, all while still being able to park and charge in a standard 2-car garage! The H1’s quick deployment and ease of use also has the potential to serve a variety of markets, with use cases in personal/leisure, law enforcement, military, and EMS/first responders. 


As you know, we’ve already teased a few new images of the Doroni H1 cockpit that’s on its way to the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022. This cockpit interior was designed with a sleek and modern design aesthetic that is meant to match the H1’s intuitive and easy to use control system. 


The entire interior and seats were built with aviation-grade materials right in our backyard of Florida—the undisputed aviation and aerospace hub of the America's, if not the world. What’s more, we are developing an entire Doroni App ecosystem with our sophisticated, next-level Dashboard Flight & Navigation system.


The H1’s onboard dash system makes full use of touchscreen monitors to control instruments in the cockpit, such as ceiling and mood lights, peripherals such as an engine start button, left and right buttons for doors, and RFID sensors. Using this application, users will hear audibles like “Doroni Systems Check” and “Doroni Ready for Takeoff.”



That’s all we can share for now—but if you’d like to learn more, we’ll be disclosing more details to your community of investors during our exclusive Welcome Back Webinar this coming Wednesday, July 20th, @3PM EST—please register via the link if you haven’t already done so. 


Doroni will be offering the FULL REVEAL at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022—when 500K+ flight enthusiasts make Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, WI the busiest airfield in the world from July 25- 31!  Oshkosh is arguably the Queen Mother of all aviation events and the general public will be able to step inside the completed H1 cockpit, touch and interact with the H1’s incredible Dash Flight & Navigation System, and don VR headsets to vertically takeoff and fly—an experience that we think is the next best thing to actually flying the H1!



If you’re interested in joining our mission of democratizing flight, now is the time!


Our 🦅 EARLY BIRD 35% BONUS PREFERRED SHARES are now live on StartEngine. This is the perfect opportunity to join the booming electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) industry projected to reach $1T by 2040 by Morgan Stanley. And if you’ve invested before, you’ll earn an additional 5% Bonus Preferred Shares as an added thank you for your support!

We’re thrilled to have you alongside us during this new crowdfunding journey and share the development progress that has significantly ramped up in the past months.

Transportation as we know it is broken: it’s Doroni’s mission to bring new sustainability and efficiency to our transportation ecosystems in the form of a personal electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle (eVTOL)—THE DORONI H1— that anyone can own, fly, and park in a standard 2-car garage.


Now’s your chance to stake your claim in the transformative eVTOL tech that garnered over $6B in investments in 2021 alone according to The Vertical Flight Society. 


Here’s to the kickoff of a great campaign that will help us build the safe, sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective personal mobility platform of the future with the Doroni H1 eVTOL. 




Keep soaring,
