Dons was born in Eiker, Norway and from 1909 he served as second in command on board Norway's first submarine Kobben (the Seal). On 1 June 1912 Dons performed the first flight in Norway, in an Etrich Taube monoplane named Start made in Germany by Edmund Rumpler. A few days later, 7 June, Dons flew from Borre over Horten, crossing the Oslo-fjord to Moss and Fredrikstad – covering a distance of 48 km in 35 minutes.
In 1935 Dons published his book: "Start". En norsk flyvehistorie fra 1912-13. ("Start". A Norwegian aviation history from 1912-13.)
