A flying car company in Florida has created a behind-the-scenes video detailing the development of its two-seater eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicle. 

Doroni Aerospace, a seven-year-old startup in Pompano Beach, a Florida beach town just north of Fort Lauderdale, has test flown its vehicle inside a large building.

The electric aerial vehicle (EAV) has relatively simple controls.

“It's a simple joystick; just a joystick going forward, backwards, left, right, up and down,” CEO Doron Merdinger told IoT World Today. “Think about the three-dimensional elevator.” 

The company has applied to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for official test clearance and aims to ship vehicles in 2025.
