3Points orders 25 Doroni eVTOLs

Doroni Aero­space has signed a non-bind­ing Mem­o­ran­dum of Under­stand­ing with 3Points, a lead­ing Cana­di­an Remote­ly Pilot­ed Air­craft Sys­tems (RPAS) oper­a­tor, with the intent to bring the Doroni H1 eVTOL to the Cana­di­an mar­ket.

3Points will pur­chase and sell 25 units upon suc­cess­ful test­ing, ver­i­fi­ca­tion, and reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments to oper­ate the vehi­cle with iden­ti­fied use cas­es. In exchange for ear­ly access to pro­to­types, 3Points will assist in test­ing ear­ly ver­sions, and the two com­pa­nies may also explore the oppor­tu­ni­ty for a com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion part­ner­ship.

3Points’ posi­tion as Canada’s top RPAS oper­a­tor and test­ing organ­i­sa­tion will be high­light­ed and rein­forced as it is the first to test and deploy an impor­tant sec­tor inno­va­tion; Doroni will ben­e­fit from 3Points’ exten­sive net­work of clients and oper­a­tors.

3Points focus­es on accel­er­at­ing inno­va­tion and advance­ment of RPAS solu­tions for clients while pro­vid­ing Emer­gency Man­age­ment teams and Nation­al Inci­dent Man­age­ment Com­mand coor­di­na­tors to inte­grate advanced RPAS plat­forms into real time emer­gency oper­a­tions.

This rapid­ly deploy­able and cer­ti­fied capa­bil­i­ty enables the seam­less inte­gra­tion of RPAS air oper­a­tions into exist­ing emer­gency response, allow­ing for mis­sion crit­i­cal real time sit­u­a­tion­al aware­ness for first respon­ders.

In addi­tion to inno­va­tion test­ing and field oper­a­tions, 3 Points is active­ly sup­port­ing and grow­ing the RPAS com­mu­ni­ty with both online and hands-on advanced and spe­cialised cer­ti­fi­ca­tion cours­es giv­ing stu­dents hands-on flight expe­ri­ences.

Doroni Aero­space was found­ed in 2016 by ser­i­al entre­pre­neur Doron Merdinger. With 25 years expe­ri­ence in design, man­u­fac­tur­ing, and man­ag­ing eight-fig­ure firms, Doron assem­bled a tech­ni­cal team to pro­vide an entire­ly new mode of sus­tain­able trans­porta­tion.

Doroni will empow­er peo­ple to intu­itive­ly trans­port them­selves with­in urban envi­ron­ments and between cities at a frac­tion of the time pos­si­ble with tra­di­tion­al auto­mo­biles.

Last Novem­ber, Doroni Aero­space announced that Inter­na­tion­al Vehi­cle Research pres­i­dent John­ny Doo joined as an advi­so­ry board mem­ber focussing on autonomous elec­tric ver­ti­cal flight vehi­cles.

Ear­li­er, in August, the com­pa­ny revealed the com­plet­ed cock­pit of the Doroni H1 per­son­al eVTOL with an immer­sive vir­tu­al real­i­ty (VR) expe­ri­ence at Wittman Region­al Airport’s Exper­i­men­tal Air­craft Asso­ci­a­tion (EAA) Air­Ven­ture Oshkosh 2022 from July 25–31.
