New electric Doroni H1 can be piloted with a drivers license and is essentially a drone

The dream of owning your own flying car just got a bit more real thanks to the Doroni H1.

Doroni is releasing an eVTOL that looks like a big drone.

The aircraft is semi-autonomous and can be flown by anyone with a driver’s license.

Electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, or eVTOLs, sound like they’d only exist in a sci-fi film.

But these electric flying vehicles will be regulars in the sky in the next few years.

Many manufacturers are focusing on making ‘sky taxis‘, a form of transport to help people skip traffic while travelling.

Doroni, however, is designing with personal use in mind.

Although the drone-like vehicle looks like something from The Jetsons, it’s intended for everyday use.

“We’re building the go-to family vehicle of the future that’s capable of changing the way we commute and live,” Doroni says.

The vehicle is aimed at making flying possible for anyone.

All you’ll need to operate it is a regular driver’s license plus completion of a 20-hour training course

The flight control system is semi-autonomous, designed to simplify the art of flying a plane.

Self-stabilizing technology keeps the flight smooth and the journey is controlled by a joystick.

The flying car is 23 feet long and has two sets of wings with large ducted fans.

Most eVTOLs land on pads but the H1 has wheels, which allows it to drive into your garage and charge overnight.

Its charging capabilities are impressive, reaching 80% in just 20 minutes.

The range of the Doroni H1 is 60 miles with a top speed of 140mph and a cruising speed of 100mph.

The H1 has a payload of 500 lbs but just two seats, which is quite a drawback for anyone hoping to replace their family car with it.

The company is currently finishing the first two prototypes and says that the first deliveries will be made in the fourth quarter of 2024.

There are 36 aircraft available to pre-order, 15 of which have already been claimed.

According to Doroni’s CEO, Doron Merdinger, the H1 will be an affordable option for those who want a flying car.

The starting price for a Doroni H1 will be $150,000.

That’s about the same price as a Taycan or Escalade, and will probably earn you the same amount of street cred.
